1. The word "workshop" misleading...also the word "tour." Suggest deleting. 2. The word "museum" might be replaced with "display." Not museum quality. 3. Room was messy with non-museum boxes and papers. Little space up stairs not inviting. Stairs not mentioned. 4. All items were not numbered. 5. 25% of information was most interesting 6. Seating was hodge-podge; drinking fountain did not have enough cups for a two-hour visit of x# guests.

Meaningful and unique experience

We appreciating the exhibit greatly - and the opportunity to meet the photographer. We are a church youth group - and most of our kids were 3-5 years old when 911 happened. The museum helped them understand this event in a way that many other exhibits, etc., did not. A moving and one of a kind experience.

This venue is very small but packed with very emotion provoking photos from 9/11. Our time there was very well spent. I would highly recommend this museum.

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.

Be able to touch and be so close to September eleven artifacts is an unbelievable expirience

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.
