Honor365 founder and director Ninzel Rasmuson says, "It's meant so much to us as well as numerous veterans, service organizations, and law enforcement agencies have just been a tremendous support in Kansas and that has traveled from state to state and it repeatedly know why this is so important is that Americans need it right now."
The exhibit features a replica of the twin towers before the attacks and focuses on healing, uniting, and educating the next generation.
Rasmuson says, "It's important for them to understand that this is again, the foundation of America. this is what America was built on. These people coming together and building all the things we have here and the freedoms we get to enjoy is because of the people that they did before us."
The exhibit will be on display at the museum through June 11th. However, the museum is open to the public on Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. You can call the museum to schedule a private tour.
