SIOUX CITY, Iowa, May 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The 9/11 Never Forget Mobile Exhibit has officially arrived at Battery Park. The public exhibit will be displayed at Hard Rock Hotel Sioux City welcoming guests young and old as they pay tribute to the first responders and remember those who lost their lives nearly fifteen years ago. The exhibit will be open to the public May 5-11 in Battery Park and is free of charge.
Through the presentation of artifacts, including actual steel beams from the towers, documentary video, recordings of first-responder radio transmissions, as well as guided tours by FDNY firefighters, people will learn what took place and the ultimate sacrifice so many made on that day. The goal of the exhibit is to provide an enlightening experience that will help communities to "Never Forget".
"It's our hope that this exhibit invokes not sorrow, but rather national pride and optimism as it recalls the many tales of heroism that our first responders showed that day," said Todd Moyer, General Manager at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City.
Dedication ceremonies were held Thursday morning at Battery Park to officially open the exhibit. The ceremony included multiple speakers, an Honor Guard flag presentation, and the singing of the National Anthem. Although unable to attend the opening, Governor Terry Branstad, Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds, Iowa Congressman Steve King, and United States Senator Joni Ernst all passed along their support to Hard Rock Hotel Sioux City for bringing the Exhibit to Siouxland.
Entrance into the exhibit is free of charge. Area schools have been scheduled to tour the exhibit with over 2,000 students scheduled to attend. To lead visitors through the exhibit, four New York fire fighters will be guiding tours and speaking about their personal experience as first responders at the 9/11 attack in New York.
