Appreciated the artifacts/lacked Sept.11 footage

The group thought, regardless of the intensity, that they should have captured/reviewed the actual days events as horrific as they were. Then we would appreciate the various artifacts to the utmost.

Emotionally Moving Experience

All three of us, one of which was working at the Pentagon on 9/11, felt that the trip to the workshop was well worth seeing and came away, again, moved by the heroism and sadened by the loss that we all experienced that day. I would recommend this to everyone who visits the 9/11 Memorial.

Touching and very Memorable

The museum is amazing! Very touching to see all the artifacts from 9/11. My husband and I are from Sydney, Australia and have never seen anything like it. It was so moving to hear how it all came about and the stories behind each piece of history, When we visit NYC again, we would definitely revisit the museum and definitely recommend it to others visiting NYC in the near future.

Meaningful insight prior to visiting Ground Zero

It is much smaller than I imagined, but there were only 4 of us so it was intimate and quiet and we had lots of space and time to look at everything and read/hear about it. I can't imagine what a squeeze it would be if there were upwards to 15 in the tour group. It made our visit to Ground Zero itself more meaningful, and it allowed us to share the perspective of this tragedy through the eyes of the Fire Department and other involved personnel. As we passed Fire Halls in New York afterwards, it stopped us in our tracks. I would like to suggest that the fact that the entrance fee proceeds are distributed to 6 Ground Zero charities should have a higher profile. One of our party thought it was a private (for profit) enterprise until I pointed out otherwise to them. We were all very glad we went.

Great experence before the Memorial...

I highly recommend this experience for anyone who has never visited the World Trade Center Cite. It's an excellent way to get a feel for what happened there through the many artifacts and photographs with detailed explanation. The personal accounts and stories coupled with the photos were very moving, but in a way that honored the victims, responders, and workers. I was impressed that it was done in such an uplifting manner so that you could feel the emotion but still leave with a sense of hope. We had a variety of people in our group ranging from seniors to age 10 and each took something lasting from the exhibit.

Meaningful, touching, necessary look back

The preserved artifacts from Ground Zero and its periphery of geography and humanity are more than you can imagine on your own. No matter how much you think you remember and feel , this museum makes a tangible cry to really live our lives with more compassion, love for our neighbor , and empathy for those who have to go on in spite of their losses of family member, co-worker, or friend. Seeing the map the Gisler (sp) brothers made to assist in their search for their older brother, the fragment of a gigantic airplane, the small bits of the only glass that remained,and the grim faces in the photos , made me ashamed that I really had put this whole abhorrent event in the back of my mind. thank you for putting this museum together. I will certainly tell my friends to go see it.
