Excellent, but lacks visit to Ground Zero

Excellent little museum with audio tour of photographs and artifacts of 9/11 plus personal intro to the photos by the photographer. Grandchildren also very moved by this program as well. I believe that this experience must be coupled with a direct visit to Ground Zero, which is not provided by this venue. You can get an excellent view of Ground Zero from the second floor of the stunningly beautiful and serene Wintergarden at the end of Vesy Street, along the Hudson River, no entrance fee, and can also visit , also free of charge, the small church at the east edge of the Ground Zero site which miraculously survived the collapse of the adjacent towers entirely intact (even though the collapse brought down other adjacent smaller but still huge office towers) and which was used as a respite, staffed by dedicated volunteers, for the 9/11 recovery team for over a year. It includes many letters, photos, and other artifacts relating to the immediate afermath - search for missing loved-ones, for example, in the immediate aftermath of the collapse of the towers. Very moving! The promo material for the "Ground Zero Workshop Tour" needs to be more clear and up-front that it does not include a tour of Ground Zero , and that it is not located close to Ground Zero.. I did not realize this until I had booked my ticket. This venue should, unsolicited, suggest to those booking tickets, that they should also consider planning a visit to Ground Zero like that I have mentioned, and provide directions to get there.

Excellent; tasteful; respectful; sad; historic.

I would highly recommend the tour of this museum to every American and decent person on the face of this earth. This was a sad day in our history and one that we will never forget. It also affects people of all faiths and nationalities. We need to stand strong as members of the human race to insure the safety of people everywhere in order to keep a handful of menacing, suicidal, demons from ever allowing this to happen anywhere ever again. The Ground Zero Museum is a must for anyone visiting NYC. While it will bring tears to your eyes and leave a huge lump in your throat, you will also leave saying, "How dare they!!!" Whatever it takes, Osama bin Laden and his coherts MUST be stopped and pay for all the heartbreak and damage they have caused.....NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKES!!!

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.

Lest we forget!

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.

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.

A well-organized and informative display and, of course, very moving. The images are spellbinding.
