Helped us to realize the horror of attack!

Pricing and time-length of exhibit just right. Hope that someday seating will be better, but understand that takes $$$. We visited Museum first, and would have appreciated getting tips for those proceeding to the Tribute exhibit and best way to view the replacement construction - instead of having a Gray Line bus simply drop us off 2 blocks away with "enjoy your visit". BTW-used "Unspecified" we didn't have a "Couple" option and would have expected that just under "Family With Children". Similarly, I don't understand why you would provide a choice of "Couple on a Date". There were several couples in our group and doubt any were on a "Date". Thanks for "listening"!

A MUST for those who want to understand.......

We all watched our TVs or read the papers re/ Sept 11.....mortified and upset. This is a dedication to the people beginning Sept 12th. It focuses on the recovery and delicate handling of efforts which took months to finish. Very emotional -- and it has changed my perspective forever! Very honorably done and handled! Gary Suson has done an outstanding job!

The workshop was an emotionally moving experience, it really helped us to understand exactly what happened at Ground Zero during the recovery effort. The emotion captured in the pictures was so touching.

I was leery about going to see a museum dedicated to such a recent horror. The museum is very powerful and moving in its handling of such a sensitive subject. I would definitely recommend it for others.

Waste of money!!

My partner an i took the opportunity to visit the ground zero site hours before we took part in this activity. Whilst at ground zero we also visited the small museum which cost us $10 each. I felt this activity added nothing more to what we had already either learned or experienced from visiting the site and the museum at the site. Only being one very small room of items & photos i'm not sure how you can class this as a museum!! My partner and I were both EXTREMELY disappointed and the only thing that kept us sane through out the hour we spent there was knowing that our $50 charge was going towards some of the 9/11 charities. Being sat down in front of 2 dvds as part of the 'museum / workshop' i felt was exceptionally poor and i felt like walking out at this point. I would NOT recommend this to anyone. I felt strongly as though the tragedy of 9/11 and it's victims was being cashed in on and for me that was an uncomfortable position. Save your money and pay the $10 to the small museum at the ground zero site.

Small but very good

Although the museum is quite small, it is packed full of photographs and information about Ground Zero. It does not go into detail of the actual collapse of the twin towers, only the events that followed. This is very informative and allows you a genuine and sensitive insight into the days/weeks that followed this tragic event. The audio technology is very good and enables you to choose what information you would like about specific photographs and items in the museum. We spent approxiamately 2 hours in the museum, and then went by subway to the Ground Zero site which is about 3 minutes away. I would recommend this museum.

A touching tribute to all affected by Sept. 11

The pictures tell their own story and when accompanied with the audio the story of the WTC and the recovery that followed is one that will stay with you always. Very moving and emotional.

nice but expensive and self-promoting

There was great stuff here, but it was too self-promoting and not enough to make a whole two hours or $25 worth it.
