NJ to host yearlong Sept. 11 tribute exhibit

TRENTON - The New Jersey State Museum will debut an exhibit commemorating the Sept. 11 attacks featuring oral histories, local photographs and industrial artifacts from ground zero.

Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno announced details of the "Remembering 9/11" exhibit yesterday at the Statehouse, saying the exhibit is intended to be uplifting, not depressing. It will open Sept. 7 and run through September 2012.

"We need a place to teach kids, not just the one day, but for the entire year about what happened 10 years ago," said Lt. Gov. Guadagno yesterday.

Steel from the World Trade Center and personal artifacts from New Jersey residents who perished will be on display alongside a slideshow of memorials and a space to leave personal reflections.
