Must See!

This was a wonderfully touching and educational museum. Such thought and detail and respect has gone into it. My husband and I attended with our youngest sons age 20 and 21 who were thoroughly enthralled by the entire event. I can't recommend this enough to people. It really makes you think about what happened on that day in New York City - and how many people were affected and still are.

Saw the museum on 9-11-06 and it was especially moving to be there on the 5 year anniversary. It was really cool how the photographer was there to explain every detail and even one of the surviving firemen were there also. It was amazing and truly moving. I would highly recommend it to anyone who gets the chance to go. It is an amazing experience and I would do it again.

A very moving experience about the human spirit

The museum is not about the attack on the twin towers but about how the rescue workers operating in extreme danger worked with great courage and compassion to recover the remains of those who were killed in the attack.It is a very warm and moving experience.

I would highly recommend the Ground Zero Museum Workshop tour. The photos were very moving & the stories were incredible. Many of the stories were things I had never heard about. It showed the true magnitude of the events of 9-11 and the aftermath.

Ground Zero Museum Workshop Tour - disappointing

There is a charge of 25 dollars per person. Venue was a small room upstairs, no wheelchair access and with factual items situated around the room. You can purchase postcards and a book. Items far too expensive, £12 for a postcard and £66 for the book. Venue is 9 minutes travel on a train from Ground Zero. There is a museum at Ground Zero which is free and is more interesting. There are postcards, books, t-shirts on sale which are less expensive. I wouldn't recommend a visit to Ground Zero Museum Workshop Tour because it is too expensive and not worth the money.

Very personal and in-touch museum

Being from Birmingham, Alabama, this tour provided a very realistic portrayal of what happened on the day of 9-11. Great tour guide, Lauren, she was very knowledgable and descriptive of the 9-11 story. We have recommended this tour to several of our friends and family members.

It's no July 4th, but it is a Sept 11th

I came to the Museum thinking there would be a tour down to the site, (i may have misled MYSELF). Initially i would have been perfectly content to have walked by the site and been on my touristy way. But on this subject, I was 2 visit specifically your location. I looked at my watch and surprisingly notated that it was 11:09 am. When we began our Audio/Tour. I listened to Emily and casually met Mr. Suson and During the video, i certainly shed a tear, I was here on a purpose, i was sent by those i call "upstairs" to help the few to go back home. Looking around to find my clue as to whom i was helping, i kept coming back to 2 pictures.. one absolutly profound and the other.. surprised. Trying to not sound spooky, i share with you, i would be helping 3 souls from this tregedy, the first pic i gravetated to was the woman whom in a state of fear ran into the "out of use" subway and crawled under the car for safety. she is one. The other was a man, in the picture of the Father (fireman) looking for his son, stood on top of a mound of dirt holding his shovel and looking out exhausted... then days later after that pic was snapped, his son was found under his very feet. This is the second soul. But i never found or could figure out the third soul.. because that one was a child. It dawned on me, the woman under the subway must have been pregnant.. the only other way i can confirm this thought was to look for orbs. In that picture its easy to see the dust particles.. espesially the ones close up that look like hexagons.. but look again and you can see 2 orbs in the back of the subway pic. they are faint, but they are there. As for the fireman and son. I couldn't tell you Who's it was, It could have been the fireman, (as noted many died of complications) and or the son. When i was done with my walkthru tour, i asked my daughter if she was finished, and she said yes. I looked at the time to see what it was. 12:12 This means in Numerology- Finished, ended, stop, done. still. over or even dead. To me, it was signifigant that i finished helping and i was ok to leave now. 911 for me means to help (symbology) I have recieved this sign from a particular friend over the course of the last 2 years.. and in reverse for other things. Needless to say, im tired of seeing this number. The 12 definition, has come from guides.. as other numbers and placements mean things too. I was called to help 3 leave now. There are many others but they are at the site. I'm glad i could help, I do dislike these kinds of museums, but all in all yours was TASTEFUL .. thoughtful (chocolates, klenex) and informative. I know that Mr. Suson, may not be there at each and every tour.. but i was certainly glad that i could see the human being behind the effort.. as well as the care of his humanity to put it together for the public as this is MOST important to remember. Its no july 4th.. but it certainly a Sept. 11th. 2 Thumbs up! And Thank you.

Thought provoking but sympathetic

Although we are from the UK we were greatly effected by the tragic events of 9/11. We found the workshop very profound, intimate and sympathetic. We would recommend it to all who feel they need to understand more about the events. of that day. Thank you

The mystery surrounding the location of the musuem made me suspicious...like we had been ripped off. From the guy who greeted us at the door till the end of our "tour" was an unforgetable experience. The initimate setting was the perfect showcase for such ...personal, emotion scratching photographs.

The museum was very well put together. The photos were moving and infomative. It was especially nice to have the photographer at the museum and tell some about his experience. Being able to touch some of the items and listen to his commentary on his work was very informative. I was so glad I was able to purchase his book so I could really take the time to read about each photo and even more.
