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.

Fascinating and Moving

This was a fascinating, intimate and detailed look at the immediate aftermath of the events on 9/11 in NYC. This photographer had exclusive access to the space and the people involved in recovery and cleanup, bringing us "inside" the site in a way I'd not experienced. The personal nature of the photos, the hands-on aspect of the artifacts and the firsthand descriptions during the audio tour made this a very powerful experience I'd recommend to anyone.

We were recommend the museum by a friend, we booked online before flying to New York, so many photos and each told a unique story, very moving, we went to the museum first before going to ground zero.

Interesting.

We were recommended to the Ground Zero Museum by friends who had visited before from the UK. We actually went to Ground Zero itself the day before our visit to the museum. We found it really interesting and it was nice to hear the different stories of the people who had been affected by the Twin Towers devastation but not in a macarbe way. The two girls running the museum were friendly and informative.

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.
