Ground Zero Museum New York - March 2007
Fri, Mar 23, 07   11:30 AM BRADFORD Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
My sister and I are from England and visited the ground Zero Museum in March 2007 after y visiting the site of the Twin Towers the previous year. The museum although small makes a huge impact, there are numerous photographs and artifacts from the World Trade Centre towers and most tell a story. they have a number displayed next to them and you have an individual hand held what looks like a mobile handset which explains each picture/artifact. I am unable to put into words the emotion you feel when listerning and seeing these objects which range from a menu from the restaurant high in the towers to glass from the windows of the world trade centre itself. I am extremely pleased that i attended as I felt as if I was respecting all those who lost their lives that dreadful day - all monies go to charities involved in the 9/11. If you ever go to New York visiting this is a must.

Moving Experiance

Don't let the exterior of this building in the old meat packing district fool you. The tour is definately worth the trip. The diner on the corner was great for brunch before walking down to meet our tour. We were lucky enough to have a small group. The photographer was on hand to answer questions. The movie that opened the tour was moving and really shows his perspective.

Unique and haunting

A truly unique and very intimate experience, the Workshop is like nothing else you will see connected to 9/11. I was at first apprehensive that the very small space containing the Workshop would lead to disappointment, but in the end I was glad as each of the photographs and exhibits impacts such an emotional punch that even the 2-hour visit wasn't enough to do it all justice. Viewing 9/11 from the perspective of the recovery effort is humbling in a way I can't begin to describe, and my visit to the Workshop is something that will stay with me for a long time. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Workshop to others and will certainly return during my next visit to NYC.

A very moving tribute
Fri, Mar 30, 07   11:30 AM gjohnson Female 70+ Local Family With Children
My husband and I are New Yorkers and did not know about the museum. My grandson, who is 12 years old and lives in Brookline, Ma., told me he wanted to see it. What shocked me was that he knew about it and here I am in NYC and did not know about it. To say I am very appreciative to my grandson for suggesting this activity, is putting it mildly. It is moving, jarring, very sad but very enlightening. While watching the film and seeing the artifacts I felt as though I was there. This is a museum that should be available for all to see. The only recommendation I would offer is to get larger quarters.

Very Well put together

My experiance at the Ground Zero Workshop was unforgetable. The atmospher was pleasing and each exibit gave so much information about the aftermath to 911. I was totally impressed with how well this museum was put together. I was most impressed how all the money put into the museum is givin back to New York Fire Department. Alot of time, effort, and heart ach was put into this museum in a very personal and intimate manner. I recommend going to this museum and then visit ground zero its self. It puts the meaning into the aftermath of the tragedy ground zero.

Powerful, Heartfelt, & Real !!!

We were very fortunate to stumble across this tour by an internet search the day before we took it. Can't believe it's not a hugely attended tour due to the incredible contents! It's like the best kept secret in New York. It made our visit to Ground Zero SO much more meaningful and brought the whole event home to us who live on the West Coast.. We are very greatful that Gary Marlon Suson was chosen to be the official photographer because he did an amazing job not only photographing this incredible event in history, but the artful, heartfelt way in which he arranged the museum was great! Hope more and more people will have the opportuity to see this wonderful presentation.

My boyfriend and i visited the museum on 2nd April 2007. It was a very moving experience for us both. The exhibits were very touching and very personal and laid out with dignity and sensitivity. The photos on the walls were incredible and it was very interesting listening to the stories behind each one. We would highly recommend a vist. Thank you for making us feel welcome and at ease.

Make Ground Zero Museum Workshop a top priority!
Fri, Apr 6, 07   11:30 AM terri2 Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
My 9 year old son and I had the opportunity to visit Ground Zero Museum Workshop while touring New York City. We felt it was an honor to be in this room filled with artifacts and photo documentation of the aftermath of 9/11. I was overcome emotionally but felt an inner peace and a sense of hope. The exhibit made the tradgedy of 9/11 real for my son who was only 4 years old at the time. I know he will NEVER forget. Everyone needs to see this exhibit, especially families with school age children. Suson is a master of photography. Do not miss the opportunity to see his work. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. WE WILL NEVER FORGET THE TRADEGY OF 9/11.
