    Update: Details for the exhibit have been announced for the exhibit, which will run for a year. NJ.com reports the display will include steel from the towers, personal memorabilia, and a place for visitors to leave their own memories. It will also include a professional workshop for teachers.

    Original report: N.J. Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno is expected to announce plans today for the state museum’s Sept. 11 exhibit.

    Set to run Sept. 7 at the New Jersey State Museum, the exhibit will commemorate the 9/11 attacks.

    The Associated Press reports the exhibit is meant to unite New Jersey residents and remember the 700 New Jerseyans who died Sept. 11, 2001. The state will also unveil today its school curriculum for teaching about the attacks. Students in kindergarten through high school can learn about the attacks, terrorism and the “heroics of regular people.”
