Traveling 9/11 exhibit visits Buchanan County Fair

INDEPENDENCE, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) - The Buchanan County Fair is featuring a special pop-up museum this year to honor the people who died on 9/11.

The "NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit" travels around the country to educate people and to remember the fallen.

It's a 53 ft. tractor trailer that unfolds into a one 1,000 ft. exhibit.

It features documentary videos and actual pieces from the World Trade Center, such as steel beams from the towers.

The men giving tours are first responders. One was at ground zero helping save lives.

"After seeing the outpouring of support we got in New York from all across the country, this seemed like the perfect way to give back to the people our experiences as firemen what we saw, what we went through," Thomas Petti said.

The exhibit will be in Independence until Sunday.
