SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan museum is commemorating the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks with a new permanent World Trade Center exhibit.

MLive.com reports (http://bit.ly/Oc4afK ) a piece of aluminum from the World Trade Center that's about 5 feet long and 4 feet wide is the latest addition to the lobby of the Castle Museum of Saginaw County History. Museum President Ken Santa says it represents the lives of those killed in the attacks.

The museum obtained the artifact through a program run by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The exhibit also will include panels featuring information about the attacks.

Tuesday is the 11th anniversary of the attacks. The Castle Museum is offering free admission for military, police and fire personnel until Oct 11.
