Might as well just buy the book

While the museum itself is interesting, I did not think it was worth the price tag. My biggest complaint is how hard they try to invoke an emotional response from you. It is an emotional experience, it doesn't need to be forced. Also it feels like the girls have given their speech so many times that they are robotic at doing it. Plus their super short shorts seem to take away from their credibility. They just look like college interns passing the time. While I am very glad that the images have been captured and preserved, I think I would have preferred to buy the book and have them to look at again and again. The artifacts are interesting, but nothing spectacular and the fuselage from the TWA flight resting on the floor seems irreverent.

Wonderful, wonderful exhibition - words simply cannot express the range of emotions felt during the visit. Beautifully presented - I'd go as far to say this should be a pilgrimage for any visitor to NY.

An unknown TREASURE!

This small museum can only be described as the most important museum we visited in New York. It is so moving and really brought home to us some of the reality of what went on after 9/11. Visiting Ground Zero Museum Workshop made our visit to the 9/11 memorial so much more meaningful. While the memorial is beautiful and inspiring, we would not have appreciated it as much without having gone to Ground Zero first! We told all we met in New York how great it was and were amazed that local tour guides and hotel staff knew nothing about it. After we talked to them, they are all anxious to go the the workshop. We'd be glad to help spread the news about how great it is!!!

A ho hum representation of a momentous event

We found a collection of mostly uninspired photos and mementoes/artifacts interspersed with the odd touching portrait or scene. The collection is slanted heavily in favor and volume to the NYFD, to the detriment of other first responding forces. The video itself is self-promoting and his own quotes are repeated ad nauseum throughout the displays. One can't help wondering as to the caliber of photos which would have become available to the world had a talented photographer of intelligence and insight just happened to be on scene and was declared to be "official photographer of Ground Zero".

A great testament to Firefighters and all they did during and after the attack. Much of what is there is in the incredible book. I wish I had gone to the museum before I bought the book. The photographs are excellent and I love tat 9/11 charities benefit.

This is the only place in the world that you will be able to experience the intensity of this event this intimately. This room brings you right into ground zero. Beautifully narrated and shared in a most compassionate way. I recommend this experience before visiting the memorial. NOT TO BE MISSED!

This "small group" experience intended to help us remember the experience of 9/11 has been organized to provide the most powerful and moving experience for everyone involved. This is not for children, AND it is not a typical museum (The 9 11 museum has yet to open in NYC) it is interative two hours that everyone WILL remember. I would recommend that EVERYONE that visits New York take the time to be a part of this workshop.

Anyone who visits New York and doesn't visit this museum/workshop tour, has missed out on one of the most impressive places in the entire city. Big doesn't always mean better i.e. this is a very small museum, but certainly makes you understand the magnitude of that tragic day. Words can not describe the photographs Mr. Suson has on display here! Thanks to all who has had a part in making this available to the public.
