Well worth the visit, so glad we went.

On the day we visited ( Sunday 2 Dec 2007) we were fortunate to have Gary Suson head up our tour. The room was smaller than I imagined but so much information and emotion came over during our time there. The tour was due to last 1.5 hours but 2 hours later we were still there. The pictures, audio comentary and artefacts that you're allowed to hold or see tell you so much you might never have known. Gary freely talked to us about his role as photographer and it's clear to see the whole experience has taken its toll but the results of his work are amazing. We'd already been to the ground zero site the day before and it wasn't at all what I expected. However this museum and Gary explained so many things and makes us feel that people will never forget the heroes of 9/11 as long as this museum is there. It's not on the normal "tourist" routes but well worth your time off the beaten track.

This "biggest little museum" left a lot of feelings in my heart! It provides interesting information and deep impression and compels you to consider the human beings from the very new points. Thanx to its creators!

An informative & moving experience

It was a great experience, learning about Ground Zero and the aftermath of 9/11. The focus was on getting New York and Ground Zero back on its feet, not dwelling too much on the actual attack. I think that is the only right approach, it's a positive message. Through stories about the firemen, you can empathize with them and have a greater understanding about what it was like for them. Moving & emotional, but always positive. I highly recommend it.

A somber reminder

We really enjoyed our visit to the workshop. I liked that we could listen at our leisure to the different descriptions around the room. One of the most remarkable takeaways for me personally was regarding the amount window glass from the buildings, where I was at the moment when I heard the news and turning on the TV as quickly as possible. I found the exhibit tasteful and respectful of the families of the victims. Wonderful job!

Very emotional and real

We both enjoyed the museum and workshop. The reason it is called a workshop is because you can touch some of the objects found in ground zero. This made the events on 9/11 more real and put a personal touch to each individual killed that day.

With so much emphasis on the actual attack, this exhibit gave visitors a chance to grieve and relate to the aftermath. Complete with photos, videos, audio and artifacts from this tragic day in history, this is truly New York's biggest little museum!

Very memorable and worth the price

For starters, I would like to start off by saying , the tour guides were very nice and professional. They explained thoroughly what we were to see, hear, and expect among the two hours of the stay. Even though the physical space is small, there was plenty of information to see, and hear through the state of the art audio tour. It put me personally back in the time period of September 2001. At times it made me emotional which was to expect. Just seeing the pieces of rubble, parts of the building and personal belongings that were gathered from the site just put me in another state of mind of tranquility, anger, and then saddness form all that happened that day. I LOVE the pictorial book that I purchased. It really explains the reality of what the photographer went through for the period of time that he and the firefighters/police/ EMT'S delt with this unbelievable tragedy. Thank you very much for the memory. There is not a day that goes by that I could forget what happened on that day. "I will never forget". And now, I have a new memory to remember daily! Darrin Smith

I was in NY for a show and was looking for something to do on the second day. Decided to book this tour after reading many positive reviews online. The museum is very small and is not what you would normally expect. It is scheduled for two hours but you can be done in as little as an hour or so. If you have the time I would recommend taking the opportunity. It is located in a nice area with other things to do. If you don't mind walking it is about 30 blocks from Times Square south.
