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.

UNKOWN EFFECTS OF 911

we have visited ground zero once before, in 2007 but did not know about this museum. we found info about thru ttheir web-site. we booked in advance and were pleasantly supprised at how intimate and non-touristy this museum is. we were deeply touched thru the 2 hrs. we spent there. we read every and listened to every picture and artifact. this museum gives a whole different look at 911. it shows thru the eyes of people that were there and not just what our government wanted us to know. we will recommend this to anyone that visits nyc. thanks again,,, robert & julia

Please make every effort to attend this museum if you are visiting New York. The program was amazingly put together and brought you much closer to events which impact America and each of us as individuals. Please do not miss this opportunity!

This little gem of a museum is definitely a work of "heart" as well as art. The pictures were great & seeing the artefacts brought back memories of that fateful day. "We will not forget" - thank you to Gary for creating this memorial.

Small, but extremely powerful...

This tour was amazing...initially I wasn't sure, because it's sort of hidden and the museum is small - I wondered if we would be there more than 30 minutes, let along an hour and a half...but once you realize the enormity and uniqueness (is that a word?) of what is exhibited, it blows your mind and tugs on your heart - we stayed until the very end and could have used another half hour at least. I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who is interested in witnessing first hand accounts of the tedious, gut wrenching, emotional recovery process. Very humbling. One suggestion I might make...the tour guides were extremely knowledgable and engaging...some of the things they shared, you heard on the video and then again when you listened to the narrative of the photos...it was slightly redundent...maybe the guides' focus could be more on what the plans for ground zero are or how the fire department & police department have replaced their great loss, how 9/11 has changed emergency response...just a thought. Thank you for letting us relive the heroism and determination of all the special people who assisted with the recovery process, through your camera lens! C&A Mission, KS

The strong emotional impact of the space and its contents hit us first but it was the caring gentleness of the tour leader that brought us into the space and allowed us to experience what the intention of the museum workshop seems to be It was truly amazing on how many levels the photos and artifacts impacted me I highly recommend this museum
