Orlando exhibit offers perspectives, tributes 2 years after Pulse shooting

Tuesday marks two years since 49 people died during a mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Tuesday marks two years since a gunman took 49 lives and injured another 68 at Pulse Nightclub.

For 31 days during the summer of 2016 employees of the Orange County Regional History Center collected and cataloged nearly 6,000 items left at various memorials throughout Orlando.

Assistant Curator Emilie Arnold who served on served the collection team said, "We’re picking things up out of the memorials and reading those messages and we knew immediately which objects carried the most power."

Arnold helped put an exhibit remembering the tragedy of Pulse last year at the one year mark.

This year the exhibit, 'Another Year Passes: Orlando After the Pulse Nightclub Massacre' offers perspective two years later.

The Pulse shooting was the deadliest mass shooting in modern day history but has since been tragically replaced by the 2017 shooting at a Las Vega concert festival that killed 58 people.

The rest of memorabilia will remain on display through October 14.
