We not only experienced deeply moving emotions here but we learned so much about the years following the attacks. It was our most important stop on our visit to NY and we highly recommend this museum to all age groups.

The Ground Zero Museum workshop tour is definitely recommended. The photographs and artifacts presented are a time capsule of one of the most shocking events of our lifetime, and it brings to life what happened there in the days, weeks and months after the event. If you are interested in learning more about 9/11 please also consider the 9/11 Memorial site that just opened at the Ground Zero site (info at 911memorial.org).

The term "Museum" is misleading only in that most people expect to enter a larger space when they are going to a museum. It is a disappointment to walk into basically a living room and realize that is it. The guides explain away the size of the place well, but I think you should be more clear about the size of the space when advertising to eliminate the element of surprise. Also, there were not enough seats or clear vantage points to view the video. We were some of the last individuals to enter the room and all the seats in front of the TV were taken. Group sizes need to be adjusted based on ability to provide everyone an equally good view of the TV presentation. I was at an extreme angle and someone's head was blocking part of the TV. So, my first two impressions were not good. Its smaller than expected and because of that and the size of the group, my view of presentation stunk. After that, the actual artifacts and pictures were nice and we enjoyed doing the second half of the tour. For $75, we were disappointed overall. For what the three of us got, I would have been comfortable paying $10-15 each, but not $25. I guess it goes to a good cause though. I hope this feedback helps and is taken seriously.

The narrator said we could touch anything, and then there were signs that said not to touch ?

Poignant trip to help you understand 911 recovery

We attended the workshop on a busy Saturday. It is in a small room in the Meatpacking District. Make sure you take the address as it is fairly unnoticeable from the outside. The experience is solemn in that you come face-to-face with so many artifacts from the tragedy (including a piece of one of the aircrafts and glass from the towers). The extraordinary courage and dedication of all involved in the recovery effort really shines through in Gary Suson's poignant photography. He also provides the excellent commentary to the exhibits on the audio tour. The one thing that irked me is that the place is steeped in religious symbolism and commentary. For example, photographs of chaplains and religious symbols are shown and explained throughout. This I think is due to the sheer weight of the tragedy and people wanting to make sense out of it. However, religious brainwashing and extremism caused that fateful day and the last thing the world needs is more religious brainwashing as a solution. I think the museum does enough without this religious baggage. It is gratuitous and self-defeating as ultimately that day showed the failure of religion and the need to replace it with a clearer, more humanistic, progressive way of thinking that is based on facts not fiction.
