This display provides a rare opportunity to see and hear the details of the Ground Zero rescue effort. The audio tour poignantly tells stories of both the victims and the rescuers. The photographs are one of a kind. This exhibit completes the Ground Zero experience...just visiting the Trade Center site is not enough.

Without any hesitation, I reccommend that you visit this incredible hidden wonder. Visiting the Ground Zero Museum and Workshop was a very powerful experience. Never have I felt so moved from looking at artifacts, but these weren't just items and pict6ures. I felt like the whole room was breathing, like it was just full of the souls who were lost that day, wanting to show all the good that happened in the aftermath to make people realize that most people are inherently good. The size of this wonder will surprise you at first, and may even make you a little doubtful as to whether you should be there or not. But I assure you, good things come in this small package. It holds an intimate and healing collection of materials that will do nothing but help you really think about the goodness of people and the obscurity of why things like 9/11 happen. Gary and Joe, our guides, were phenomenal. They provided an in depth look at what exactly went on during those long months (they were there) and they gave us information and insight about the artifacts in the room. The handheld audio devices helped in learning more about each item. It was an incredibly moving spot in NYC. All in all, please visit the Ground Zero Museum and Workshop. You won't ever regret this experience. You should probably bring some extra tissues though. Anyone who has a heart will be in tears during this activity. I plan on going again in the future. It helped me realize what is important in life, and what can take the back burner. I assure you you won't regret going!

Please attend this workshop!!!

This is well worth the money. People commented on it being small -- it's really not that small; it's INTIMATE. You learn so much - and you talk to the people around you and the people running it. Attending this has made the events of 9-11 real for me and my sisters, (who were all really young when this happened). I have seen countless documentarys about what happened; but just tonight I watched another one, (a week after attending this), and I was SHOCKED by how I felt...this gave me an entire NEW perspective. I highly recommend going to Ground Zero right after the workshop. It's a $2 subway ride, (and it's easy to find, even for three young kids from Wisconsin who have never been on a subway). Just ask the guys running it how to get there and they will totally help you to find it. Don't miss this!! And PLEASE take your kids, they will appreciate it.

My sister in law had never been to New York. Going to Ground Zero doesn't really give the impact of what really went on that day because it is really cleaned up. How tall the buildings were and the distruction. It really looks like a construction site for people who have never seen it before. I wanted her to feel it and understand the humanity, distruction and loss this country felt that day. We both attended the museum with our teenage daughters. To our great surprise Gary the photographer was leading the tour that day. What an honor to have him there explaining how it was, what he saw, how it affected him. We all four were crying during the video. The photos and artifacts were incredible. It gave me a whole new perspective on the event myself. To feel the crosses made from the steel of the buildings. How heavy they were really gives you the idea of the weight of what happened. The photos of the men and women lost and their stories were heart felt. I can't believe that this great city recovered with such dignity and love. The people of New York are amazing. I will tell everyone that I know about this musuem. I already told a ton of New Yorkers who didn't even know that this musuem even existed. Everyone needs to know about this great experience. It keeps everyone one who lost their lives that day alive through this experience. I will never forget and I greatly appreciate what Gary has done for everyone involved. May everyone who helped during this time have the strength to heal their memories from the horror they saw and give great peace to know that so much love has come out of this event. With great respect to everyone. Gary made us feel very welcomed what a great artist and human being. I hope that great things happen for him and his great photography. Thanks for an awesome experience. The DiAnna Family, San Diego, California.

Outstanding, Emotionally Provoking, Realistic

The visit to the Ground Zero Workshop Museum was outstanding! The up-close and personal photos supported by the one-on-one conversations with our FDNY retired fireman, host ,and tour guide, made this experience both real and very emotional. The discription of the minute to minute, day to day, and months to months following 9/11 are amazing, as they are all captured in Greg's photos. The learning experience about the 9/11 WTC attach, far passes any TV documentary seen to date. I was accompanied by my boyfriend, who is a NC Fireman. The following are his personal comments: "I very much appreciated the opportunity to touch and hold several of the museum artifacts, as well as hear the radio transmissions from 9/11. This experience gave me insight into what that tragic day really meant for so many of the firemen, the police, the EMTs, and the public." Do not visit the WTC site without stopping by to visit this museum!

Very Moving and Unique Experience

The best event that I have ever attended regarding the tragedy of 9/11. The perspective of the tragedy was presented in a way that I have not experienced previously. The artifacts were very unique and the stories that accompanied the pictures and artifacts was very moving. Having those who experienced the event first hand lead the workshop really enhanced the experience. They really shared from the heart and were passionate about their message and the cause they support. It was also unique and special to be able to touch the artifacts. I will come back when I return to New York and will encourage others I know to attend the event. It would be nice if this experience could be taken on a road show across the country, especially to schools. My hat is off to Gary and the firefighters who participate in this extraordinary and unique experience. Thank-you, Mike Duran

My family and I were very moved by this museum. It was very personal, hands on and reverant. Anyone who wants to know what it really was like on 9/11/01 needs to see this museum!
