9/11 at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History

In remembrance of the terror attacks that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001, the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is providing free exhibit admission to everyone on Wednesday, Sept. 11.

At the center of the 9/11 Tribute Exhibit is N-101, a full-façade panel that supported three floors (101-103) two stories above the center of the impact zone of the North Tower.

The beam is comprised of three steel columns, bolted together, three stories tall and is the largest World Trade Center artifact in Texas, the museum said in a news release.

It arrived in Fort Worth in early 2011 and was installed two years later. It serves as a place for reflection for those who recall the attacks, and as a place of learning for those much younger.

At 1:30 p.m., the Museum's halls will fall quiet to observe a moment of silence in honor of those who lost their lives in the 9/11 terror attacks.

Immediately following the moment of silence, Jonathan Walker-VanKuren will sing the Star-Spangled Banner. Walker-VanKuren is an Artist Diploma student and professional opera singer. His performance is sure to be a moving piece of music.
