Gary Suson did an excellent job of providing a way for people to connect to 9-11. We were able to meet him and ask questions which was really a treat for the 3 of us.

Very touching tribute to 9/11. It really hits home to see the pictures and the artificats and the stories behind them. Recommend going and seeing it and remembering those that gave their lives to help others.

Extremely Moving Exhibit

Heart wrenching yet very moving. I recommend this exhibit to always be open so NO ONE ever forgets about how vulnerable the US is to terrorists. Even still we give these same people opportunities to use our own resources against us. How sad to feel this way but 911 can never be forgotten. This exhibit lets you see/feel what the tragedy created. My prayers forever to those who died and those surviving (all victims) and to photographer Gary Suson for living through that hell to keep an important part of our American history preserved. We must never forget as we rebuild to become a stronger Nation under God. Thank you for the privilege to come to the museum to view the various artifacts and to feel the devastation of so many lives cut too short too soon--may we never forget! Thank you so much for keeping this vital historical tragedy forever preserved. I'm sure the cost to Mr. Suson mentally is beyond comprehension. I hope that later the planes hitting the towers and the towers falling can be added to the history along with more radio transmissions to truly comprehend the horror.--Also footage from the Pentagon destruction and the plane that was stopped by true heroes before it reached its intended target--for a full picture of the terrorism. God bless.

Very Emotional

The visit to the museum was probably the highlight of our new York experience. Even though we went to a fabulous Broadway show and went to great restaurants etc. This is the one thing that has really stayed with us. Many of the details, and especially the human element of this catastrophy were revealed to us for the first time. We were very fortunate to meet Gary that day also, what an amazing man!

Something everybody needs to experience

This was my second time visiting this place and it is a very moving, powerful experience. It's really a memorial. Gary Suson is a wonderful human being and had a superb idea to create this museum. Having it in this one room that has 2 small sofas in the room and some chairs where you can just sit and take it all in, in addition to the audio and personal tour is just a perfect way to experience this. I think everybody in the universe needs to go at least once. My second time was just as moving as my first time. It is really not to be missed on a trip to NYC.

The museum is very small, but worth the visit. The tour guide was fantastic and very informative. Saw lots of photos, artifacts and heard stories that I never knew about 9/11. It was both amazing and heart breaking at the same time.

meaningful and close-up activity

We had traveled from the West Coast and felt that we got a real feeling for what NY had gone through on 9/11. It was tastefully done with great respect for those who were closely touched by this event, yet informative enough and thoughtfully done so many of our questions were answered. It put the tragedy and loss to so many in human terms and was the most meaningful activity we did on our visit to NYC.

An emotional roller-coaster

I entered not knowing what to expect, a tiny room on the 2nd floor of a building. a room full of pictures, archives, and a ton of humanity. The self-guided tour allowed you to take whatever time you wanted. This was a good thing because it allowed you the time to emotionalyy recover from the last narration. I am a 40+ year-old man and there was several times when all I could do was hold my tears back. There was some humor in some of the photos, so it was good to go back to them and recover from the anger,sadeness, or the many other emotions I was feeling at the time. This "little" museum's set-up was very thought out, very easy to work, and again being self-paced allowed you all the time you needed. I spent almost 2 hours in a 400 sq. ft. room struggling to mentally and emotionally control myself. This is a MUST DO for anyone visiting NYC. Instead of taking a taxi to my next stop I walked the 43 blocks instead. The pictures and emotions still going through my mind, it was like going to a wedding then a funeral then a birth. Again an emotional roller-coatser that was the greatest ride I had inNYC.

We Highly Recommend This Museum!!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed The Ground Zero Museum. We got a really good feel for what the firefighters and rescuers went through and what they had to deal with. There is a story behind every picture and every item recovered during that time. It was heartwarming and very tastefully done. It’s a great place to go and reflect on that day and hear about the selfless people who made such an impact on that horrific day and time in our history. It’s a must see if your in NYC.
