Important to preserve such a traumatic event

I liked that the workshop is not too explicit in terms of showing death or trauma. It is a very human review of what happened. I think that it is priced very high for basically a short visit to a tiny exhibition, but if funds are used to help families of the casualties, I am much better with that.

This was truly a cathartic, amazing journey of the recovery through the eyes of Susson's photos. This was an emotional but necessary experience for our family.

As residents o the uk it was important to find out the full picture of what happened and what has happened since. This definitely showed that more people effected than led to believe. Lots of un sung heroes. NY will always honour these people but important that thy are not forgotten across the world. This small museum will help support this. Well done to all involved.

What a terrible tragedy
Fri, Aug 26, 11   11:00 AM yuanator4 Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Individual
What a great tribute to those who lost their lives in the terrible tragedy. The museum tour tells a very informative story and the photographer Gary Marlon Suson's photographs depict a lot of very moving moments. A brief video is shown while you sit in very comfortable surroundings. All exhibits and photographs are numbered and the story is explained though audio from headphones. I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend the museum. It took me a while to regain my composure after it was over, it is quite emotional. My heart goes out to all those who did not survive and the people who risked their life for others.

I didn't expect to see so much from behind the scenes. I had no idea about the damaged building across the street, the one the insurance companies wouldn't let any one go into for so long, or the subway track under the WTC. Its wonderful how everyone pulled together. I was only surprised that the tour didn't end at the sight, but when our tour was over and we went to ground zero I understood more as to why.

Very Personal Experience

When we first entered the room, it was hard to believe that we could spend two hours in this small museum. Within minutes after our orientation, we realized this was something different. The personalized messages from the photographer were powerful and made our experience feel like a personal tour. I liked that we could take our time and go in any particular order that moved us. Having the couches and chairs, bathroom and water cooler were also very helpful. My husband and I loved this museum and will highly recommend it to friends.

A heart touching experience

My uncle, firefighter Raymond R. York was one of the 343 to respond to the WTC and lose his life saving people on 9/11/01. I was 12 years old when it happened and watched as the towers burned from my classroom window. Fear was driven into me at this young age and sorrow overwelmed me. I've always felt surrounded by the aftermath of 9/11. I havnt gone a day without something atleast in some relation to that day affecting me. But I choose not to forget about it and ignore those feelings. Instead, I choose to learn more about the good acts that came from that terrible day. My uncle was a hero and I honor that. I visit ground zero frequently and leave a picture of him at memorials. It was'nt until last week that I discovered their was a ground zero museum. When i found out, i made an apointment instintly. I find other peoples experience's and thoughts helpful. Most politics about 9/11 on TV anger me, but when I met or hear the veiws of another who lost someone, It relaxes me. Every person that died that day joined a family of almost 3000. This museum showed peoples emotions and gave details on what really happened down there. Im glad to hear the facts and see these images and artifacts with my own eyes. Its real and leaves me assured, that my uncle did'nt die for no reason. I know this because of the stories that are told here. The photographer Gary Suson did his job well. I only wish I could have heard more. The words he speaks about the open up my eyes. I thought I knew a lot about that day because of the people who I've spoke with that were down there. But when he speaks with the pictures in front of your eyes, it brings a whole knew sence of reality I can assure myself is fact. Thank you Gary and I highly reccomend anyone who has intrest of 9/11 to go to this museum.
