Southeast Texas Senior Tourism News: Fire Museum of Texas to Host 9/11 A Timeline Exhibit from the State Museum of New York

On today’s Southeast Texas Senior Tourism News, we look at a special 9/11 exhibit coming to the Fire Museum of Texas in Beaumont.

In Southeast Texas, 9/11 is a time for reflection. We remember all of the innocent Americans who lost their lives that day.

This year, revisit for a moment, the unforeseen tragedy that unfolded on 9/11 2001.

The State Museum of New York has created a special timeline recreating the events as they unfolded in New York City and at The Pentagon in Washington DC.
