OAKLEY — The Fick Fossil and History Museum will host a traveling 9/11 exhibit in October.
The 9/11 Never Forget Mobile Exhibit is housed in a 53-foot trailer that unfolds into a 1,100-square-foot exhibit that includes artifacts such as steel beams from the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center that were attacked Sept. 11, 2001.
The exhibit was formed by the Stephen Stiller Tunnel to Towers Foundation in September 2013. The foundation was established by family members of New York firefighter Stephen Stiller, who had just gotten off his shift when he learned of the attacks. Stiller returned to his squad to suit up. Unable to drive to the site, he strapped on 60 pounds of gear and walked.
Stiller died in the collapse of the towers.
The educational exhibit also includes documentary video and recordings of first-responder radio transmissions.
The exhibit will be at the museum Oct. 17 to 20.
The exhibit will be open during the following times:
• 1 to 7 p.m. Oct. 17.
• 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. Oct. 18.
• 1 to 7 p.m. Oct. 19.
• 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. Oct. 20.
Groups of approximately 60 can tour the exhibit in 30 minutes. To schedule a tour, call (785) 671-4839.
