The 911 Never Forget Mobile Exhibit is making its way to the Coastal Bend. 

The mobile, high-teach, 53-foot tractor-trailer travels across the country to educate the public on that infamous day. 

The exhibit pays tribute to the lives lost on September 11th, 2001, as well as to those who help and protect us every day.

The memorial provides interactive education through artifacts, documentary video, recordings of first-responder radio transmissions, and more.

The Fire Department of New York will even given guided tours.

In addition, there will be a display of First Responder vehicles involved in the critical rescue efforts of Hurricane Harvey.

On Friday the 16th at 11:00 A.M., the exhibit will open to the public, followed by eye witness testimonials and a candlelight memorial service in honor of the 343 New York Firefighters who died that day.

Before its Saturday opening, there will be a special Reading of the Names Ceremony at 10:00 A.M.

Sunday marks the last day of the exhibit, which is free of charge.

You can find the exhibit at the Festival Grounds at Rockport Harbor, 101 Seabreeze Drive, Rockport, TX 78382.
