The exhibit will remind us how sports helped give the nation a reason to cheer again in 2001
"For us as a Rangers team we really felt the responsibility to represent the city, to represent the first responders, to represent the people who had lost their lives, and to represent the Downey family," said Messier in a press release. "It was an honor and we quickly realized we're standing shoulder to shoulder with the first responders who had been so brave."
Entrance to the exhibition is free with museum ticket purchase, but walk-up space will be limited so it is recommended that you reserve a ticket in advance on the website. The exhibit will open to the public on June 27 and will be on view through summer 2019.
