Some interesting stuff, but overall disappointing
Fri, Jul 30, 10   1:00 PM troyandtodd Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The musuem is a single small room filled with pictures and few display items from ground zero. The tour begins with a very brief introduction by a guide, then a short movie. After that, the entire time is spent with an audio headset where you enter the number of the picture on the wall that you want to hear about. A brief audio file is then played that tells something about that picture. Some of it is interesting, but it gets tiring just listening to taped recordings. There is no live human interaction. In addition, many of the most interesting facts are covered in the short movie, then repeated when you enter the number for the photo displayed on the wall. Definitely not worth the ticket price.

Small, but Powerful

This was one of the most powerful presentations I have seen in a long time. Not only because the subject matter evokes emotions, but how the presentation was made, the individual displays, the small venue, the short descriptions of each picture all lent to providing a moving memorial to those who were so closely affected by this tragic event.. Thank you.

AMAZING & HEART-WRENCHING!!!!!

I was skeptical about this tour because I had never heard of the museum and alot of New Yorkers aren't aware of it either. My husband and I were there for three days and this was the most amazing, heart-wrenching, wonderful, tragic experience of our lives. Gary went through alot (God Bless Him) to show the American people that Recovery can happen. I believe this museum needs to be more well known. It really hits home!! People need to see this so they don't forget!! It not only helped us remember what happened on Sept. 11, but also made us more aware of what it was really like and what Gary and all the other Recovery workers went through. People need to remember this tragic event. ..Dale & Cherie Tweedie, Alton, IL

A moving tribute to events after 9/11

This exhibition provided the story behind the many images we've seen in the papers since 9/11. It made me realise that so much good and compassion has come out of a horrific and senseless act.

Not to be Missed

We, and our two teenage granddaughters, spent the full two hours allotted at the Ground Zero Workshop. The films, photos and memorabilia that we viewed are now embedded into our short-term, and hopefully, long-term memory banks. Individuals and families visiting NYC should not miss this opportunity to relive and learn more about this most important event and acts of heroism associated with it.

Worth every minute of your time.

This is a small museum but very well presented. We definitely will recommend it to family and friends. It's a very emotional experience but something everyone should experience. We already plan on a return visit w/our 14yr. old. son. He read every page of the book we purchased on our visit. Thank you. Just a suggestion: Also, sell sweatshirts and/or t-shirts in remembrance of 9-11-2001.

Very real and intimate exhibit!
Thu, Jun 26, 08   11:00 AM traveltrish Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Upon entry I was concerned about the smallness of the facility, but quickly realized and felt the reasoning behind the setting. There are many little stories which allowed us to get a real understanding of the experience. A few of the stories and items shown are eerie and symbolic which makes the exhibit even better then expected. Gary Suson has done a wonderful job creating an environment and setting which allows the patron to bring children who can get a true feeling of the events while getting a feeling of hope for the good that came out of that horrible day. The entire gallery is appropriate for children that are of the age to understand what happened on 9/11. I hope you all enjoy as much as we did!

Moving experience

Overall the small museum provided a great perspective focused on the recovery process at ground zero. The photos were exceptional, and the stories behind them provided a personal view of the experience. The museum was primarily photography; however there were several artifacts from ground zero that provided an additionally chilling experience.

Absolutely Intensely Moving!

I feel so priviledged and blessed for having been permitted to view the 9-11 pictoral human-ness of that horrible day, and to hear the obviously heartfelt dialogue of the official NYFD photographer, Gary Suson, as he literally waded through one gut-wrenching experience after another. The personal experiences of Gary is portrayed through his compassionate and tasteful photography. No one can leave the same as he entered the museum. The regret is the exhibit is only there in NYC and not more accessible to the masses around the nation. Thank you so much for this always to be remembered experience. We attended as mother, adult daughter, and 14 yr old grandson. The exhibit was captivating to each one equally.
