A Must See!

A superbly done display of photographs taken by Gary Suson and artifacts found at Ground Zero during the rescue efforts with each display providing a touching story describing its significance. A must see for those wanting to gain knowledge in the less publicized information about this tragic event.

Honest Insight into this Tragic Event

This is a worthwhile visit which gives an emotional insight into the aftermath as seen by the firefighters. The stories and information passed on is truly touching and brings home the impact on so many people. It would perhaps be worthwhile putting these amazing pictures and stories with other experiences, and remembering that so many other nationalities were also involved. Definitely worth a visit before going to the site.

OK but not as strong as I would have expected

I took my son to the museam expecting to give him a good sense of 09-11, the impact on the US and the aftermath. In reviews people mentioned that the museam was small and I was very surprised to see it was in one small room. In addition the video's played were only on a small plasma screen on a normal stand, this could have been so much better. I think the actual subject matter and imagary were excellent with some stunning photographs combined with interesteing audio descriptions. However in my mind this was a too narrow perspective and I would not recommend to anyone who wanted a complete overview of the subject.

Well Worth The Time To Visit

I really didn't know what to expect ahead of time - and was very pleasantly surprised. The combination of video presentation and self-paced audio tour worked out well for this venue. The size of the group seemed appropriate for the room size, and people were polite about trying not to get in each others way. The "tour guides" were pleasant and once their initial presentation was over faded into the background. I saw on the website that they accept tips but I didn't see (and I looked) for a place to put tips. I liked the fact that they had a book open for you to browse through, in addition to signed and sealed copies for purchase. They had little cups of water available and also had a restroom. I wasn't enthusiastic about having to put my purse in the cubby with everyone else's belongings, but there weren't any problems. It was a respectful and peaceful experience, appropriate for the gravity of the museum content. It's definitely a "tour" I would recommend to others traveling to NYC.

Was worth the trip. A little pricey but the money helps support some charities that are worthwhile so after I thought of it as more of a charity type donation instead of just admission, I was good with it.

Our visit to the Ground Zero recovery museum was an amazing experience. It was totally humbling & it made you feel as if you were there on that fateful day. Gary Marlon Suson's photographs are magnnificent beyond any words can express. He is truly an intrepid human being. The tour guides were extremely pleasant as well. We highly recommend this. May all those we lost RIP

not as expected

It's a nice little place, but based on the info I had, I expected to see more then just one little room with a few pictures. Also, by a guided tour, I expected a real human guide, not a set of headphones.

Moving; interesting; well done

The exhibits are all in one fairly small room. Most exhibits have a # that can be entered on an audiophone to learn more about them. Consider the admission price a donation--it is a bit steep but goes to a good cause. It is very well done and worth the visit.

This is a small, studio sized museum filled with pictures taken by the owner, Gary, and items from the Ground Zero recovery effort. You will come away with a deep appreciation for the dedication and sacrifices made by the recovery workers. Gary's audio narrative on each piece is what makes this museum a must see for anyone interested in learning more about what the recovery effort was like at Ground Zero. It was a highlight of our NY trip.
