My husband and I found the display of photos and artifacts very affecting. I'll always remember the clock on display that stopped at the very moment the plane hit the tower. The small quarters of the museum enhanced the reality of what we were seeing. It also made us feel privileged to be there. Thank you for leaving boxes of Kleenex around.

The size fo the display was very appropriate for portraying the impact of the 9/11 attack on individuals.

My husband and I visited the museum on 9/11/09 It is very moving, I recommend it to anyone of any age. I was afraid it was not what I thought it was when I got the address after buying the tickets. Do not be put off by the address, it is off "the beaten track", but well worth the trouble getting there. Buying tickets ahead of time is pretty much a must since only 20 at a time are allowed to enter. I pray that there will never be a reason to have another museum like this

Perceptive and Dignified Expressions

This was my second visit to NYC and this wonderful museum in two years. Since my visit last year I have spoken to many, many people about the "must-see" exhibit. Gary has to be the most perceptive and respectful professional photographer in the world. You must not visit NYC without visiting Ground Zero Museum Workshop for a true up close and personal 911 experience. The small space is packed with so many touching pictures and memorabilia items My opinion is that every American should see this exhibit.

This is a beautifully displayed, tasteful exhibit. It is somber but certainly not gruesome. We had an excellent tour guide but the photographer was also there and was happy to answer questions. I would put it as one of the most important tourist sites in the U.S.

A MUST SEE

We found the museum to be one of the highlights of our trip to NYC, if not the top one it ties with the Statue of Liberty. Tastefully done, Very emotional. We highly rcommend this to any and all. Thank you.

Ground 0 Museum Experience

My husband and I were really moved by the photography and articles on display from the 09/11 site. Photographer Suson did an amazing job gathering what we saw. The workshop was well designed and contain in a small enough area that we could share all the pictures and findings with others in one room which worked out well for my husband who has a problem with mobility. Thank you for a quality and memorable experience at a reasonable rate! Clara & Roy Raynor

Worthwhile

It's impressive; at the same time lacking. I was surprised that it was only one room, but it was packed with material. I guess I expected more drama and more emotionally charged material. I was more impacted by the material that was inside the church at ground zero a year after 2001. It was handmade stuff submitted by the community and things from the emergency rescue people. The timing may have had most of the impact as Ground Zero was still a dusty mess at the time Even though Gary himself gave the "tour", I was looking for more intimate details. He did well but I wanted to relate more to the people. God Bless him for what he is doing, though. Never forget! Maybe it needed a better timeline. Before the attack, the day of, the next few days, the next 6 months and where we are today. The stories were hard to put together with all the artifacts. Do go and do support this effort. it is worth the money.

This was one of the most impressive things we saw on our visit to NYC in 2008 "Lest We never Forget" It was so poignant without being obtrusive and gory. The pictures told a 1000 words and the audio attached to each picture told the story of that particular picture to the fullest. The whole thing had deep meaning-one left this exhibit/lecture feeling a connection to those who not only left us on this fateful day but also to the loved ones they left behind. I would recommend it highly to ech and everyone who visits NYC
