Deeply moving....

It was very moving to come face to face with actual remnants of the 9/11 disaster. Also very touching to hear the stories behind the pictures and learn more detail. I can't imagine the toll taking all that aftermath in must have been on Mr. Suson but his documentation allows the rest of us to grieve and empathize more with what actually occurred. It was a very somber and moving experience for myself and 3 teenage boys I brought with me. My son is in training to be a firefighter and the tour guide was kind enough to get me the address for Rescue One in Manhattan. We visited there right after the tour and were welcomed so kindly by the firemen there (who sadly lost 11 of their own that day). After your museum and then meeting these men and seeing the firehouse with pictures of those they lost on the walls, it was a very powerful day that gave us new found awe and admiration for the FDNY and all of those involved in coming to the aid of their fellow man without question, even at their own peril. We will never forget the experience.

Displayed in an intimate setting, the photographs and artifacts show the recovery process of Ground Zero in a personal way. Each visitor has a headset and can listen to details about any of the photos or artifacts in the small museum area at their leisure. You will leave with new found respect for the firefighters who searched tirelessly through the rubble for remains.

It was a moving display but it was kind of repetitive after awhile. I enjoyed it and would recommend it but it just didn't move me as much as I thought it would. I don't know for sure why, but there was a disconnect for me somewhere. I just wasn't feeling it.

It's a museum in one room. Your headphones tell you a story for each picture or object. Very moving.

My friends and I had a wonderful visit on 10/16/11

The two women working the 2 pm tour of the museum were both awesome, Annalisa and Jenn. They really put their hearts into it, and make it all the more special in the way they present the museum, and especially through their dedication to the museum. The artifacts made me feel a part of, and the clock was an asset to the exhibit for me.. I was pleased to see that privacy was an important issue in the sharing of the photos to the public. The museum was great, and I wouldnt change anything about it! Thank you, Jessica Ryan

Excellent Exhibiti...Touching and Poignant

Wonderful, heartfelt, fascinating museum that included captivating photographs and artifacts from 9/11, as well as tasteful videos and touching stories of some of the victims and their families. All were extremely touching, though most notably the piece of the plane from Flight 11 and the World Trade Center clock that stopped at 10:02 and 14 seconds when the first plane hit the building. This museum is very small in space, though huge in one's heart and history.

Heart Wrenching, Poignant, eye opener

This museum workshop exhibit is a must. It is heart wrenching, poignant and raw. Being there can draw from your deep raw emotions from within and remind one of that life is long, but it is short at the same time. That we are all interwined together in the fabric of humanity. What happens in this earth, good or bad, affects us all, whether or not we care to admit it. We come face to face with the artifacts of catastrophe and tragedy and tears, yet we are also reminded that there is always renewal, brotherhood, love. That the worst brings out the very best in all of us. Out of the ashes and destruction, we are resolute, we start again.

I felt like I was in an office and someone put pictures on the wall. There were too many interruptions.
