An incredibly rewarding few hours.. Gary's spirit and passion ooze out of the walls of this very special place. If you visit New York you must come. Be prepared to relive some of the raw emotions of 9/11. You will also be uplifted by the photos and stories of the many heroes of that day. Bravo Gary and thank you for letting us share the experiences and insights that were granted only to you..

We visited the museum workshop tour on 14 April 2011 as part of our first visit to NYC and were not disappointed. The museum is small but as such, gives a good atmosphere. There were lots of fantastic photographs and relics to look at and the audio guide for each photo/relic was easy to use. It was much easier listening to this than reading loads of text under pictures. The narration was easy to understand and extremely interesting. There was just one problem, we didn't have time to listen to each station! We shall have to return..... Make sure you take a visit to the toilet - this is a minute museum in itself - and yes, the chocolates ARE free...... The museum gave us a fascinating insight into 9/11 and listening to some of the stories did bring tears to my eyes. Although there are no horrific scenes, personally I don't feel it is suitable for very young children. If you are going to visit this museum I suggest that you do so prior to your trip to the actual Ground Zero site as you will have a much better understanding of 9/11 when you get to Ground Zero. We were advised to do this and it was definitely better to do it this way round. I would definitely recommend visiting this museum.

The tour exposed us to the lives and experiences of those touched by 9/11. The event was emotionally and sensitively portrayed and enhanced our understanding of that terrible day.

This was my second time visiting this place and it is a very moving, powerful experience. It's really a memorial. Gary Suson is a wonderful human being and had a superb idea to create this museum. Having it in this one room that has 2 small sofas in the room and some chairs where you can just sit and take it all in, in addition to the audio and personal tour is just a perfect way to experience this. I think everybody in the universe needs to go at least once. My second time was just as moving as my first time. It is really not to be missed on a trip to NYC.

Excellent, hearwarming true stories of 9/11

The Ground Zero Museum Workshop Tour is like no other Mueseum that I've ever been to. Its intimate atmosphere allows you to get up close and personalize what happened on that September morning in 2001. The photos are unbelievable and each has its own story to tell which is told to you by the photogropher himself Gary Marlon Suson through a audio-headset. There are many artifacts to look at as well. The tour starts with a video and then is self guided. If you are interested in learning about the rescue efforts and the personal stories of 9/11 then the Ground Zero Museum Workshop is essential. We were fortunate in that on the day we went to the museum, Gary himself was there and gave us the tour. Not only is he a talented individual but he has a great heart and he shared with us so many of his personal stories as the official photographer of Ground Zero.

OK, I have to admit when we arrived at the museum, my first thought was "oh my gosh, I paid this much money for this little museum?" BUT . . . it was awesome and VERY well worth the money. Mr. Suson was actually at the museum the day we went, introduced the museum, and was available to sign his book. He has taken an aw inspiring timeframe in his life (and ours), and made it come to life for each and every person. His work is exceptional, and I would consider myself very critical when it comes to spending my hard earned money. Mr. Suson, you and your staff are doing an excellent job and should be making every person touched personally or otherwise, very proud! GREAT JOB!!!! EXCELLENT WORK!!! SPEND YOUR MONEY TO SEE THIS MUSEUM!! I would/will return for another viewing.

The museum was a very intimate, emotional and real experience. Having the audio of each photo made one feel more connected with the story.

Excellent but under advertised

Had a great experience, staff was excellent and meeting the photographer/owner was great - very down to earth and easy to talk to. Out of towner, very few people I asked (locals) were aware of the musem, as I walked up to the musem I was beginning to wonder if this was legit, remember out of towner and NY has some events that are less than stellar. The location is somewhat by itself and the burned out building next door adds to the suspicion. With the current advertising I almost missed my chance to taken part and my trip would have been so much less meaningful. As it is, I was not able to use this as part of the explorer pass and we paid directly to Zerve as I wanted to lock in my reservations and I was directed back to NY Explorer...there were only two reservations left and I could not take that chance. Okay - hope that helps, I would strongly recommend the visit and if I am back in town will take anyone who has not had the opportunity to 'experience' this exhibit - many kudos.
