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.

Fantastic! Do Not Miss This Opportunity!

My husband and I visited the Ground Zero Museum Workshop on our first and only tourist visit to New York.  With so much to see and so little time, we were torn with where to go and how best to spend our time.  We are so happy we chose to visit the Museum!  We were extremely impressed and moved!  It was definitely the highlight of our trip.  We loved the intimacy of the setting with the small space and small groups.  We were not rushed and felt comfortable expressing emotions and asking questions.  We had the great opportunity to meet Gary Suson the photographer; who was so gracious and willing to share his experience with us.  His work is amazing!  He brought to life the real events and rescue efforts that happened after 9/11.  Not an activity for young children, but everyone who is old enough to hear about 9/11 should see this exhibit.  It was created with taste and respect.  It made us proud to be an American and proud of the brave men and woman within our boarders who help to protect us everyday (fire fighters, police, rescue workers, iron workers, etc.)  We hope that someday this exhibit will travel around the U.S. so it can be shared with many others. Bravo!  Thank you for bringing this to the public.

what a tribute!

Even though I am not American you cannot come here and NOT be touched and moved by the displays at the Ground Zero Workshop Museum. It's not large, but it's very well thought out and even manages to show humorous moments as well as very sad stories to hear about. You will see photos, pieces of glass from the World Trade Center, you can even touch it! You will be given an audio guide with numbers on the items which will explain to you what they are and what they mean. Staff are available to help and answer questions. One of the highlights of my visit to New York!

Well worth the visit, so glad we went.

On the day we visited ( Sunday 2 Dec 2007) we were fortunate to have Gary Suson head up our tour. The room was smaller than I imagined but so much information and emotion came over during our time there. The tour was due to last 1.5 hours but 2 hours later we were still there. The pictures, audio comentary and artefacts that you're allowed to hold or see tell you so much you might never have known. Gary freely talked to us about his role as photographer and it's clear to see the whole experience has taken its toll but the results of his work are amazing. We'd already been to the ground zero site the day before and it wasn't at all what I expected. However this museum and Gary explained so many things and makes us feel that people will never forget the heroes of 9/11 as long as this museum is there. It's not on the normal "tourist" routes but well worth your time off the beaten track.

Intimate overwhelming xpeience

If you have any feelings for the events of 9/11, whether it be curiosity, involvement, passion, questions you need answered, then this experience will appeal to you. Touted as the biggest smallest museum in the world, it is just that, a simple room but filled with more stories and artifacts than time will allow you to fully grasp. This experience will reduce you to tears. It certainly did each person in the room with me. Touching actual pieces of the towers, listening to stories which accompany each of Gary Suson's brilliant photographs, all overwhelming experiences. Had the pleasure of meeting Gary on my visit and he was entertaining and humble, a pure gentleman. I highly recommend a visit to this museum when next in NYC. I know I will be returning. I went before we ventured to the site itself and feel better for the experience.

Best time spent while in NYC.

While visiting NYC for the first time, my family and I did a lot of sightseeing. We enjoyed the Ground Zero Museum the most. It was very informative, thought provoking and tastefully done. It was great to be able to hold some of the pieces. The stories were truly touching. I would highly recommend the museum. I brought home books for my husband who didn't get to go with us. The museum is well worth the nominal admission fee.

I'm glad that we decided to visit the workshop as afterwards we visited the ground zero site and it just felt like any construction site. The workshop is very well done and I don't think you can visit New York without taking time to reflect on what happened to the city.

My mom, sister and I went to the Ground Zero Museum Workshop and were so glad we did. The photos were beautiful, moving and thought-provoking. We learned so much about that day that changed the lives of all Americans. I encourage everyone to go.

An Amazing Experience
Sat, Nov 10, 07   11:30 AM nstarker Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
A friend and I attended the museum workshop in November 2007 and our group was lucky enough to be able to meet Gary Suson. My father did not die in the 9/11 attacks but he was a fallen firefighter and I wanted to visit this museum our of respect for his brothers lost in 9/11 and the families that they left behind. This is a deeply moving and informative experience and tribute. The great care and respect that guided the creation of this museum is evident in every aspect from the guides to the artifacts to the photos and they way that everything is presented. It is non-commercial and heartfelt and Gary Suson is truly a special person for having captured a time of such despair, hope, sadness and love and sharing it in this way. The personal stories attached to the displays within the museum allow visitors to try to gain some sort of understanding of this tragedy and share a tiny burden of grief with those who lost loved ones in the attacks. It is a experience that we will never forget. Take this tour before visiting Ground Zero.

Informative - Thought provoking

It was informative to here the narratives behind the photos. Mr. Marlon was there and was very gracious to the attendees of the tour. My only input would be that I wish there was more to view.

Moving and Interesting

The tour was extremely well put together and very thoughtful in considering the victims and the families of the victims. There were parts of it that made me tearful and the exhibits displayed are appropriate and amazing. The photographer was there when we were on the tour and was available for questions about his experience at Ground Zero. We walked down to Ground Zero after the tour and then finished off at Battery Park where the globe that used to be in the WTC Plaza is now displayed.

A moving tribute to events after 9/11
Mon, Nov 5, 07   12:00 PM tritreadwell Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
This exhibition provided the story behind the many images we've seen in the papers since 9/11. It made me realise that so much good and compassion has come out of a horrific and senseless act.

I visited the museum on a recent trip to NY, with my friends and family. I found this link online, and we all decided to purchase tickets. It was one of the highlights of our trip. It was a moving experience, and I learned a lot about that fateful day. We lucked out and the photographer himself, Gary Suson, was there, and what a treat! He was great. He allowed pictures, signed books, and shared his personal story. It was awesome, and something I will never forget. I recommend this to everyone!!
