Fort Worth Museum will stream the moment of silence at 9:28 AM on Facebook Live on Friday, September 11
The brief ceremony, concluding with a moment of silence will center around the Museum’s N-101 beam, 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. 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.
Although the event will not be public due to social distancing guidelines, the Museum invites guests to watch it streamed live. Guests can visit the 9/11 Tribute Exhibit during normal operating hours, Thursday through Saturday, 10 AM – 4 PM for Museum members and 11 AM – 4 PM for non-Members.
To commemorate 9/11, the Museum will also be free to first responders on Friday, September 11, and Saturday, September 12, 2020. If you are a first responder, reserve your tickets by calling the Museum at 817-255-9300.
