9/11 Mobile Exhibit

Retired New York firefighter Ronaldo Robledo gives a tour of the 9/11 Never Forget Mobile Exhibit to a South Newton 4th grade class last year in Goodland.

A semi-truck that holds a 1,000-square-foot museum is coming to White County. The 9/11 Never Forget Mobile Exhibit will set up at the White County 4-H Fairgrounds for the fair.

The rolling exhibit is built to travel the country in a semi-truck and unfolds into an interactive museum telling the story of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City. The exhibit takes two hours to set up and an hour and a half to take down. 

The 53-foot tractor-trailer was commissioned by the Towers to Towers Foundation to memorialize Stephen Siller, who died helping victims of the 9/11 attacks. Siller lost his life after strapping on his gear and running through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the Twin Towers, according to the Towers to Towers Foundation.
