T he Little Museum of Horror and Sadness

The discussion of the event was provided by the photographer himself the day I was there, the video and display were very very well done. The pictures were so moving . It was quite evident how much the photographer himself had been affected by his experience of the horror that he saw,and the time he spent taking pictures at Ground Zero. Frankly this little museum needs to be moved to a larger space to do it better justice. And I bet more pictures would be on display of this horrible event if there were more room. it was really a touching experience! Tanya Tweeton Fort Lauderdale

Overpriced

While the photos and artifacts are interesting, I feel like $25 is a lot to pay for so little so see. The website describes it as a 2 hour tour, but they showed a video for about 5-10 minutes and talked for another 5-10 minutes. The rest of the time you look around the museum - which is a single small room. Some of the photos have horrible or inspiring stories behind them, but more than anything, I learned that Gary Suson was the official photographer at Ground Zero. I must have heard and read that fact about 2 dozen times. Gary Suson was the official photograhper at Ground Zero. Since this is supposed to be a photo documentation of the recovery efforts, it would have been helpful to have an organized timeline. Maybe if Gary Suson was still giving the "tour", it would be worth it - to have that personal account. The young woman who gave the short talk seemed indifferent - like this was just another tour. Did you know that Gary Suson was the official photographer at Ground Zero?

Intimate and Informative

Great experience for the teens and up. Like the intimate setting. Recommend having more than one bathroom and a cleaning person regularly.

So well worth the time and money

I stumbled on this Museum online and am so glad we went there. I have visited the 911 sight twice before. The displays and photos in this museum made it all so real and showed the horrendous human loss and the horrible devestation of this evil act. It also showed the bravery of all the men and women who selflessly risk their lives every day to keep us safe and protect our freedoms. This museum is well worth the time and money. It was some of the smallest things that were so meaningful and these displays were very well thought out and very well staged. God Bless America!!

Must See in NYC

Incredible. This is a must see attraction if you're visiting NYC. Don't let the size of the museum fool you, you'll need all 2 hours to absorb everything.

Excellent photography

The many photographs give you a sense of what the recovery process entailed during the aftermath of 9/11. Particularly poignant were the photos of the retired firemen who had lost their sons in the tragedy.

meaningful and close-up activity

We had traveled from the West Coast and felt that we got a real feeling for what NY had gone through on 9/11. It was tastefully done with great respect for those who were closely touched by this event, yet informative enough and thoughtfully done so many of our questions were answered. It put the tragedy and loss to so many in human terms and was the most meaningful activity we did on our visit to NYC.

It was O.K Don't know that I would visit again
Fri, Aug 3, 07   11:30 AM tstrassler Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
It was O.K . The neighborhood didn't seem like the best place to be, even the cab driver said are you sure this is the right address?, but once we were greeted at the door by a nice looking young lady, I felt better. I expected the museum to be bigger than it was, and was a bit disappointed, because there were more pictures than items displayed. We took my grandson with us (11yrs old) I think he enjoyed it, because he liked the companion? (electronic listening devise) and he could go at his own pace and view what he wanted. The tour guides were very friendly and knowledgeable, but I thought the souvenirs were a bit pricey. $6.00 for a postcard. It was nice to visit once, but I don't think I will go back.

Lots of color for a smaller space

Very well organized w/ photos and the audio narratives for context. The artifacts themselves are the most unique and impacting. Unlike any other sort of museum interaction.
