MOUNT PLEASANT — A mobile exhibit commemorating the collapse of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, returns to Patriots Point Saturday through Monday.

The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation’s 9/11 Never Forget Mobile Exhibit includes a guided tour by New York City firefighters who were part of the search and rescue operations after the terror attack that killed more than 3,000 people.

Artifacts on display include steel beams from the World Trade Center, documentary video and recordings of first-responder radio transmissions.

Admission is free from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Saturday through Monday through a grant from the USS Yorktown Foundation and the Motley Rice law firm, which represents families of victims of the terror attacks. Parking costs $5.

The exhibit will arrive at North Charleston City Hall at 10:30 a.m. Friday, where it will be met by Charleston-area first responders and then escorted to Patriots Point.

A 9/11 remembrance ceremony starts at 8:30 a.m. Monday. New York City Fire Department Chief John LaBarbera and Battalion Chief John Carroll will speak and lead tours along with other New York City firefighters.

Motley Rice attorney Don Migliori, who is part of the Mount Pleasant firm’s anti-terrorism litigation team, will also speak.
