The Nixon Library currently has 20 tons of destroyed World Trade Center steel and a damaged first-responder FDNY aerial ladder truck on display through Sunday, September 11, 2011. This exhibit commemorates the 10th anniversary of the terrorist bombings via airplanes of the World Trade Center in NYC, the Pentagon, and United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed into a field near Shanksville, PA before reaching its target destination of the White House.
This exhibit is free and open to the public 24 hours per day. Check the web link for a list of talks and complete information. The artifacts return to NYC on September 12th. Below are some quick snapshots I took while visiting on September 8th.
