I was initially disappointed at the size of the room. But when I put on headphones I travelled back to that eventful day. The artifacts, photography and importance in the room brought me to tears. I loved how the heros were portrayed.

Come to this Museum, & Skip the WTC Tribute Center

I went to the WTC Tribute Center at Ground Zero and also to the Ground Zero Museum Workshop and there is no comparison: Ground Zero Museum Workshop is the closest you can get to understanding what happened after the 9/11 attacks. Tribute was a bit impersonal, and when you walk in you are face to face with a gift shop,, and Workshop Tour has a more personal touch, with your own tour guide, walk thru of artifacts, a video and numerous stories programmed into a self-guided audio unit. The Museum is located in a commercial building and is indeed small, but after a few minutes you forget that fact as the information is so interesting. Nothing you have ever seen on TV about 9/11 compares to the stories & information contained in this Museum. Tribute is conveniently located at Ground Zero, and the Museum Workshop is in the meatpacking district on west 14th st, but learning about those who died is not about convenience, it is about the duty the living have to the memory of those who senselessly perished in the attacks. Go to this Museum -- you will not be disappointed.

although I found this a fascinating insight from a different perspective, I much preferred the Tribute WTC Visitor Center. The person to person approach was much more heartfelt and therefore much more moving.

Extremely well set out displays and helpful staff. Personalised audio tour meant that you could look at exhibits in any order. Audio commentary really gave a flavour of the many intimate stories behind the amazing photographs. Incredible how much could be learnt from such a small exhibition area.

Highly recommended. Well worth the time and money. Book ahead as tour numbers are limited. An experience that will stay with you long after you return home.

Was not sure what to expect, was a little surprised at how small the actual museum was. By the time we were done, we were there the entire alotted time taking in all of the information and images. Really made us go back and rethink 9/11 as participants in the rescue rather than just watching the images provided by the news. Very personal! Would definitely recommend to others.

The tour exposed us to the lives and experiences of those touched by 9/11. The event was emotionally and sensitively portrayed and enhanced our understanding of that terrible day.

This is something that everyone should see. It may be small in size, but it is big on passion and emotion. It gives a true feeling of what it was like after the devastation of 9-11.

Unfortunately, circumstances prevented us from using our tickets and experiencing the workshop. I hope that we will be able to visit sometime in the future.

I appreciated the opportunity to visit the Ground Zero Museum. It was quite interesting, educational, and inspiring. This was time well-spent while visiting in New York City.

Thought Provoking and Informative

The pictures and articles in the museum, along with the narrative, were awesome. They are a reminder the US is truly a nation that comes together in times of aversity.
