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.

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.

An Emotional Journey

Self paced viewing of the items in the museum. The 2 young girl curators were very good. The items displayed are expertly explained. The area is small and I would not recommend this activity to anyone with young children. Well worth the price and the time. Currently this is the only museum on 911.

The photos and artifacts displayed were incredible. The creator of the museum exhibit did an excellent job narrating each station. This tour was emotional, yet heart warming. Worth every penny and every second.

Great Little Museum

This Museum is called New York's "Biggest Little Museum" and that is completely true. I was very surprised when I was led into the museum and realized it was only one room. This one room, however, is jam packed with photographs and artifacts from ground zero. When you enter you are given a short overview of the museum and the man who was the official photographer of ground zero. There is then a few video clips and interviews from September 11th and the months afterwards. After the videos you are given a tour mate audio player and headphones to complete the self guided part of the tour. You can easily spend an hour or more listening to the descriptions on every photo or artifact. Even though the room is small the images and artifacts are very powerful. They have actual artifacts from ground zero that cannot be found anywhere else such as iron crosses burned from downed beams and a small piece of one of the planes that hit the World Trade Center. Overall I think they have done a great job and would definitely recommend attending this museum. My only wish is that they had more to show.

Will Never Forget thanks to Suson!

There are no words to describe how incredible & moving our experience was at the museum. The four of us--my parents, husband & self--were deeply moved.....We purchased the book "Requiem" & had the opportunity to meet Gary Suson & have him autograph it. Although it's small in size, the museum moved me as large as the Metropolitan Museum of Art! Photos are breathtaking, the items on display so incredible...I guess "incredible" can be a way to describe it! It's a must for everyone since each & every one of us was affected by that fateful day....Never Forget, Always Remember....Stacey Smith, NY

It was very informational and emotional especially for my husband and I coming from Los Angeles, California. It was worth it despite the cold and the rain. Will share this experience with the rest of the family and with relatives in NYC.
