Combine this with St. Paul's

The museum guides are very respectful, and set a pitch-perfect tone for the visit. In the group in the museum during our visit there was a 9/11 widow and I think she felt OK with how the visit was handled and the way in which the museum works. The background stories of the people/objects in the photos were interesting. I would recommend combining this museum visit with a visit to St. Paul's Chapel, about a block away from Ground Zero. St. Paul's provided meals, a place of refuge, and care for rescue workers for 8-9 months --- in other words, what went on with the rescue workers photographed by Gary after they left "the Pit." Seeing the two together provided a memorable morning.

A must see...hands down!

Unlike any museum you've ever seen. Tasteful, personal, sad, and honorable... will tug at your heart strings like nothing else. A much needed respectful display to honor that day never to be forgotten. Our children were quite little when 911 happened. Now, at ages 13 and 15 it was a moving experience that placed the missing pieces together for them; and us as well. Just to give you an idea: not a big cold building but a quaint small room quiet and serene with more information and memories that you could ever imagine. You see, you touch, and you will feel. Although a very heavy experience, one that no true Native New-Yorker should miss. Tips...Don't be late, a short movie is first and nothing you ever ever seen on tv. Try to see the last tour so you can take your time...so much to see and hear about. Bring a camera for sure. And if Gary is coming...wait for him...meeting him was a healing moment. And gal pals...wear waterproof mascara if any at all. Families...do something fun afterward like wax museum. And last but not least.....please tell Gretchen (who is wonderful) that Kim sent you. last words....Worth every dollar and moment of our time, would do it again in a heart beat.

Extremely Worthwhile!

This was, unexpectedly, the most worthwhile "tour"/museum of my most recent stay in NYC. I am a native who now lives in Florida & wanted my chiildren to be educated on this so important event. My children are 9 & 13 and both were engaged in the photos, artifacts and narratives explaining these things. A very important piece of history is tastefully documented here. Both adults and children were emotionally moved by this display of Ground Zero. Don't miss this!

A powerful presentation

I must admit that when I first saw a one room museum I was somewhat skeptical, but I found the visit to the Ground Zero Museum workshop to be one of the most powerful I have had at any museum in the USA or abroad. Perhaps because I remember so many of the events so clearly, it was so extraordinary. I was also quite impressed with the guides, and their sensitivity in dealing with the issues, and was honored to meet Mr. Suson, and speak to him personally. I feel that one of the most valuable things was the lack of a commercial air about the entire situation. It was simple reporting of a catastrophic event, and bringing it to the daily human level. I have recommended this museum to everyone I speak to, especially New Yorkers who are not even aware it exists.

Honors and Respects 9/11

This museum is only tiny in size. The amount of emotions they evoke and memories they stir is HUGE. Your heart will weep but if you ever thought that after that tragic day you DIDN'T DO ENOUGH for the survivors, rescuers and innocents killed, spend the money to get in and know that you money is going directly to them. I would have paid 5 times as much to get in knowing that my money is going to a variety of charities established for innocent people affected by 9/11.

the ground zero workshop is exactly that-

a workshop that helps one heal from the events of 9/11. i wavered back and forth when i came to visit nyc of whether or not i'd be able to even go look at ground zero or not. i heard about this workshop, and although i was still unsure, i decided i needed to try and face some of my fears of that day. i would recommend the workshop to anyone. i thank the artist for putting the small space together- it's perfect. it's intimate and safe and each person can listen to as much information as they can handle. i always felt so silly for being so affected from that day. i was living 1200 miles away (in minnesota). i always wondered why it saddened me as much as it did. i was able to work through my grief and come to terms with that day. i can now look at pictures and video of that day and still remember, but not become so overwhelmed. thank you.

A very moving experience

I would highly recommend the Ground Zero Museum Workshop tour. The photos were very moving & the stories were incredible. Many of the stories were things I had never heard about. It showed the true magnitude of the events of 9-11 and the aftermath.

Very touching.

Not being from New York or having any relatives that were living there when 9/11 occurred made it really dificult for me to relate or feel any real feelings towards the tragedy. But this Ground Zero museum really captures the heart of it all. The artifacts found and the stories behind each item and photo really hit home. To me this is a must visit museum when visiting New York.

Great learning experience!

It was so informative to see so many pictures of the recovery process after Sept 11, and to hear the actual audio of many people there was at times an emotional experience. Also being able to see a piece of one of the planes and touch some of the Twin Towers windows really brought the tragedy home.

It was very interesting to be able to see it at your own pace. Loved the smalls groups and the pictures were awesome. Have just moved from Chicago to PA for my husband's work. Friends from Chicago found the tour on line and we accompanied them. Even the teenagers said it was good and not boring. Have told my husband that he and my boys need to see this next we come it for sightseeing of NY.
