This tour of the ground Zero museum was the best part of my trip. We booked our tour for Sept 11, 2009. The little room doesnt seem like much when you get there but by the end of the tour you realize just how much there really is. The setting is comfortable and the information is plentiful. Gary Suson did a little speech before the guide took over ( we were very lucky to be there on a day Gary Suson was there) Its very emotional and the stories heard are amazing, I could have went through the whole tour again if I could. If there is one thing on your list that should not be missed while visiting new york I would say this little museum is it. Gary Suson does an extremely amazing job at giving you an insight of what ground zero was really like and how everyone did the best they could to look after everyones loved ones and lost ones.

A must see if you are in New York

Well worth the money and time if you are in New York City. The museum was not what I expected in a physical sense, it is in a smaller room, and the number of people are limited, so book early to save a spot. The room is surrounded by Suson's photographs of the recovery, each with individual stories or experiences narrated by Gary Suson. The stories and photographs depicting the aftermath of this disaster were very moving. There is a short video presentation in the beginning and then some hands on exhibits and stories. The rest of the time is spent listening to numerous stories and experiences during the months of the recovery operation. This was very nice because you could go at your own pace and listen to as much as you wanted, as many times as you wanted. I would suggest going to this museum first before heading down to ground zero, the Subway is short walk after the Museum tour and it takes you right to Ground Zero. A moving experience...NEVER FORGET

I have been to this museum workshop earlier in the year. I find it a tourists' jewel and not very publicized. I understand the reasons, however, the concierges at the hotels should know about it. I did not go on this ticket. our trip was canceled.

If you don't do anything else in NYC, do this! It is perhaps more important than visiting the Ground Zero site itself. It is probably the most emotional experience I have ever had. When you first go in, you see that there is only one room and you think "this doesn't look that imposing"........ I could have spent hours there. The pictures, the stories, the artifacts--it is the closest you can get to the actual experience of having been there during the recovery. Truly, words cannot adequately describe this experience.

Puts a human face on the tragedy of 9/11

At first we thought the museum was quiet small and weren't sure what to expect, but each picture and each artifact had its own story-we were the last one's to leave! We gathered so much information from our short time there-learned much more about what many people went through, especiallty the firefighters. We know people who volunteered and we watched countless hours of television, this musuem gave us a different perspective. Good for those who want to heal and those that want to remember to never take things for granted.

I would highly recommend this emotionally packed museum. It is easy to see that all involved in this endeavor have put their heart and soul into it. The photos really paint a picture of what happened on that day and the search that continued for survivors. We were lucky to meet Gary Suson who is the photographer for this amazing collection. Besides viewing the photos, you are able to pick up and hold artifacts from the site. We enjoyed our tour guide who easily answered all our questions and encouraged us to stay as long as we wanted. This museum is even more important now that you really can't get close to the actual 911 site. I would not miss this tour!
