Disappointing
Sun, Dec 30, 12   2:00 PM Barnabus Female 40-49 Combination Individual
My intention, after witnessing first hand, the events of 9/11 was to finally go to the site. When I googled "9/11 memorial," I was brought to your site. I thought that I was getting a guided tour of the memorial. Instead, I was brought to a museum where I was subjected to more images of that awful day that I already had in my mind. If nothing else, please provide a ticket to the actual memorial so people like me who were finally ready to see how it is now, rather than how we remember it, are given that opportunity.

Small in size, big in content.

A small museum, well-organised workshop (good reason why they had to limit the number of participants in a tour group and be strict about the time), but really big in heart and sincere in content.

Really Personalizes 9/11 even 11 years later

I think every person should get this up close chance to see the personal items and stories from a day we will never forget. It puts names and faces on the 3,000 lost as well as all those involved in the recovery.

Inspiring

The museum was better than we imagined. It was inspiring, inciteful & fillled with stories of hope. I brought family members age 15 to 23 and they listened many times over to the tapes. The tour guides was warm and educational. The shower curtain was the biggest surprise.

Small but full of information.

Smaller than what we expected (one room). Although small in size, it was full of information, personal stories, artifacts. It was appropriate for our 2 children ages 10 & 7. Definitely recommend visiting the museum BEFORE visiting the 9/11 memorial site. We spent approximately 90 minutes at the museum.

Moving Experience

What a wonderful way to acknowledge such an awful event - our tour guide was fantastic and I appreciated the time and detail that she went into explaining the photos and objects from the Towers. The photos really show the aftermath of Sept 11 in a poignant and moving way - I also was glad that they do now show the planes hitting the towers - that imagery should not be shown anywhere. We told other tourists about the Museum and advised that if they wanted to get a real sense of what the firefighters and rescue teams did during the days and months after the disaster, then this tour is one that must be taken.

A beautiful tribute

Our family (two adults and two teens) really enjoyed our time at this museum. It is beautifully and simply put together. So much information is provided about that fateful day. The pictures and stiries are so touching, and the objects and artifacts are interesting to see and even touch. We recommend this museum!

Small but powerful exhibit

The intimate setting enables the viewer to experience the photos and artifacts on a deeper level than a traditional museum setting. The setting has the feel of a one man art exhibit moreso than a "museum".

Offers connection

The Ground Zero Museum Workshop grew from a desire to help the public connect with the people and stories of 9/11; those lost in the tragedy and those who came later--the recovery workers--whose task it was to find and hopefully bring closures to the affected families. Gary Marlon Suson's incredible photographic collection and associated audio commentary, situated within this small, intimate museum, certainly does that. At once heartbreaking and heartwarming, the museum workshop is a must-see.

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.
