A Must for Anyone Going to New York
Tue, Jan 22, 08   11:00 AM ShellyHill Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
I found the Ground Zero Museum by complete accident while looking at things to do while in New York, although it looked interesting we all arrived on the day not really knowing what to expect, I guess we all had that element of doubt as to whether it would be a little disturbing and possibly tacky but I have to say it has been the highlight of our entire trip. We were lucky enough to have Gary Suson himself do the tour for us and I would say to anyone going to New York to go to the museum, there are lots of facts about what happened on the day, many photo's and artifacts from the actual site along with over 100 differen't commentries recorded by Gary himself explaining many things, it was a very emotional morning for our entire party and a very humbling experience, we all left feeling very drained but very pleased at the same time we did it, I wouldn't have missed it for the world. This is a must for anyone visiting New York, take half a day out and check it out.

Poignant Reminder of Our Nations History
Mon, Jan 21, 08   12:00 PM thegenovesi Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
We were honored to have Gary Suson as our guide at the museum. The museum itself is intimate in nature, which you appreciate when you start hearing the stories behind each of the photographs. Gary was kind enough to answer and all questions we had about the WTC site, the photographs and the subjects of the photographs. Even with a second group coming in he made it clear we could stay as long as we liked. The museum really makes an emotional impact on you. Long after you have left that impact is felt and colors your day to day activities. It makes me appreciate the country we live in all that much more and reminds me that even after a horrific event like 9/11 instead of destroying us as a nation; it only was cause for us to bond together as a nation.

A harrowing, yet important collection of artefacts from September 11. We were fortunate to have Gary talk us through various elements. I would HIGHLY recommend this musuem to anyone visiting New York. I would also recommend that you go here before visiting Ground Zero.

Ground Zero - walking on hallowed ground
Thu, Dec 27, 07   1:30 PM fabs1171 Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
This tour was a really sad experience. We had to wait 6 years before we made our journey to New York but it was worth it to be able to see the photography of Gary. The tour length was just right, we had a 10 year old and he spent the time engrossed in the stories regarding Ground Zero. The format allowed us to view at our pace. Thankyou

This is a must see. Seeing all the artifacts gets into you and make you realize more what happened that tragic day. Everything is presented in a tasteful and respectful way. Everything is well explained, I would recommend this to everyone.

A moving experience for the whole family

Wonderful experience for the whole family. My 5 year old son was intrigued by listening to all the stories and having such vivid photos and displays. Gary was there during our trip and he was wonderful, he was very informative, compasionate and caring. My son learned so much from him. This was a great experience for anyone, it is a true story in the pages of history.

Very Disappointed
Fri, Dec 21, 07   1:00 PM JKELLY39 Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
To much hype on this one... First of all I had to pay $42.00 for 2 tickets and I had to book it in advance? There was 6 people in my group. I had to wait on the 1st floor of this bldg for another tour to finish. While I was waiting, there were people taking fresh meat in boxes past me, not very sanitized. After waiting 15 minutes, while they tell you to be on time, I finally made it to the workshop. The workshop which is roughly a 15X20 room did have some very interesting pictures and objects from Ground Zero. I was expecting a "guided tour", instead I was given a headset and was told to put a number in this audio device and it told me a story about each item. I was not even able to watch the video that they talk about. You were not allowed to take a picture of a window from one of the planes, why not? at another museum you are allowed. To me, this is just an opportunity for someone to make money off of the tragic events of September 11th. He is mentioned about being an Honorary Battalion Chief with the FDNY and he uses it a lot, he was not even a firefighter, he was appointed this back in 2004 because his work at Ground Zero. For some people, they think he actually worked for the FDNY, he did not. The 9/11 tribute at the Fireman's Museum and the WTC Visitors Center Museum were better then this one and it only cost a donation of $10.00.

Highly emotional tour

A very sensitive and moving tribute. Everyone was touched during their time at the museum. Would recommend that those with small children refrain as it is intended to be an evironment for quiet reflection.

A Beautiful Rememberance of those lost on 9/11
Sat, Dec 15, 07   11:30 AM DebraJJones Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
I wasn't sure what to expect from this tour but hoped that it was respectful, meaningful and offered a sense of peace vs. a sense of reliving the nightmarish day all over again. It was all that and more. The setting provided a very soothing envrironment in which you could be comfortable crying, praying or simply remembering. It offered an incredible insight into the lives of those who were directly affected, particularly the firefighters of NYC. I didn't feel as if I was intruding in their stories but rather I was able to find a better appreciation than ever before for their incredible sacrifices. I highly recommend this tour to anyone - whether you lost someone on 9/11 or not. I did not and am forever grateful for that. Thank you for letting me get to know these incredible heroes.

awesome/incredible
Sat, Dec 15, 07   11:30 AM heatherbland Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
What a moving, tastefully done experience. the employees are warm and knowledgable and the owner/artist was kind and very interested in our experience. i would recommend this to anyone. My only negative thought is that there should be no babies/small children allowed. Even though I have small ones- I did not take them and the presence of even the best behaved ones there detracted from the experience. i think minimum age of 8 or 10 for sure. Otherwise, this was the best thing I did in NYC- topping the Met, ballet, broadway, ground zero and foodie tour.

Too much emphasis on the photographer.
Mon, Dec 10, 07   12:00 PM sqweeny Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
This exhibition has the potential to be very interesting. However, there is way too much emphasis on the photographer Gary Suson. The museum seems to be more about him than Ground Zero. The stories are quite schmaltzy and it is almost easy to forget what a horrific event this actually was. In addition, there were some silly rules, like not being able to photograph the part of the aircraft yet being able to photograph everything else. There were some interesting stories like the beer cans and the dogs.
