Truly Amazing, we will never forget

I would just like to say a big thank you to you from us all, for your truly amazing insight into what it was like at Ground Zero for the firefighters of NYC. The girls and I all came away with a feeling we couldn't describe, and through your work we can now understand how much life changed that day, and how we shall never forget.

This workshop contains unique and original facts and artifacts of 9/11 events and the following days. Everything is presented in detail and with much respect and honor for all involved. The excellent presentation of the material helps you understand the feelings experienced during that time. This workshop should be available nation wide in order that no one should forget 9/11.

Moving & Memorable Visit to the Ground Zero Museum

Greg and I visited the Ground Zero Museum on Friday 20th April 2007 whilst on Holiday in New York. We both found the Museum informative and interesting and felt very moved and emotional after our visit. The photographs that were on display highlighted some of the terrible sights and conditions that the rescue workers were faced with. It is hard to imagine what everybody on site, not to mention the families and friends of the people who were killed, went through. Thank you for allowing us to visit the Museum.

A "Must See"
Fri, Apr 27, 07   11:30 AM rconde Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
This is an exhibit that transports you to ground zero from the moment that you walk in. Gary Suson has organized the workshop in an effective way starting from the first day through the last day of recovery. He gave a presentation explaining how he became the only photographer allowed in ground zero to document the efforts through pictures and he also shared his experience as he was taking some of the photos on display. After the presentation you are free to walk around. The photos are displayed in different ways - some are three dimensional, others have actual WTC rocks, dust, debris strewn about them. Also on display are some of the items used in the recovery and items found. As you view them you have the use of a hand held audio device. Each picture/item has an identifying number, when you enter the number you hear an explanation when, where, and what was happening. This is an excellent method to use in this type of display - it allows you all the time to take it in. He has sofas and stools around where you can sit in "awe" before moving on. Do not let the size of this gallary fool you, soon you will discover that this small intimate gallary is one of the largest displays you have seen, heard and felt. We highly recommend it!

We came up for the weekend from Florida, and I never expected to get as much out of this exhibit as I did. Magnificent photography with wonderful, touching stories. I was very moved. This meant more to me than actually going to the site of ground zero. I would highly recommend this everyone.

I believe this museum was a labor of love for all those who died Sept. 11th. The museum reflects an attitude of respect, reverence, and an insight into that terrible day and a tribute so we will not forget!

A must do in NYC!

Having been to To NYC in past, and coming back post 9-11, this museum is essential for putting a lot of what happenened since that date, into perspective. The photos and artifacts, coupled with the commentaries are gripping. The hands -on element is particularly emotive. Highly recommended.

Beautifully displayed portrail of events, must see

I would like to thank Gary for this beautiful portrail of these horrific events. The emotion that is shown in his photographs along with the story being told in his voice is undescribable. The intimate setting is very comfortable and allows you to feel at home. My husband and I stayed for about 1 1/2 hours and could have stayed longer. We were not rushed and were able to move around the gallery at our leisure. Gary thank you again for doing all that you have done and are still doing for our Firefighters. My God be with you and comfort you for all you have seen and done. My husband and I expected you to be much older than you are to take this orginally on yourself than accepting the appointment, we assumed that you had seen war or have been a firefighter/EMT in the past to be able to tolerate the horrible things you have seen. You are a fine young man telling a beautiful story about a horrific event in our nations history. Kudos to you!
