...think about such things.

The museum was moving and very well done. Our whole family learned a lot and while the kids did not express a lot emotionally, I feel it did have an impact on them and provided and excellent lesson. We visited as part of a 11 day family vacation. This year our vacation had a verse from the bible to frame what we saw and served as a discussion started each night in our hotel room . The verse was

"Finally , brothers and sisters, whatever is true, is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things. Philippians 4:8

The evening of the day that we visited the Ground Zero Museum, the kids recounted several things that they saw and experienced at the museum fit into the things that this verse tells us to think about.

Nobility - of the men and women who responded to the cry of the innocent.

Right - the rescue workers treated the victims with respect as they attempted to find their remains. It would have been easier to bulldoze the whole thing instead.

Lovely. The photos of what was meant for evil but brought out the good in NYPD, NYFD and mankind.

Pure - The look of pure love on the face of brothers and fathers searching for the remains of their loved ones. Also the rescue workers lined up to show respect for the fallen heroes as their remains were carried from Ground Zero.

Admirable The valiant efforts that lasted not a day, not a week or month but over years to respectfully reclaim the WTC site.

I am grateful that these are the things that we are able to think about after visitin. Thanks for the opportunity to have a little taste of all that was done on our (America's) behalf and thank you for the experience that help us to take good from what was intended for evil.

God Bless,

Definitely worth it. This museum is located in Meatpacking District and should not be confused with the 9/11 Memorial Museum. The actual 9/11 museum is located at WTC Memorial in Financial District downtown and still has not opened.Yes, it is a smaller space than expected as one large room, but the content is rich in infornation with many photos and displays. the self guided tour portion is great. You can actually touch some remnants. Brought back a lot of memories for me as I am a native NYer who was working at the hospitals that day on 9/11. Very emotional as I remember these events like yesterday. Very peaceful music and Tissues discreetly placed around room. I would advise going at least once if you are visiting NY, but is estimated 2hrs. I went to the actual Ground Zero WTC memorial though first, then went to museum after. I was a little depressed after the museum due to solemnity of content, so was glad to go to the High Line Park after to decompress and get fresh air. We will bever forget!!

I was unsure what to expect upon our groups arrival. We had 10 high school students and 6 chaperones that came to visit the museum. It totally exceeded our expectations. It was quite an emotional few hours. Loved the first hand talk from the photographer himself and the narrations that each picture had. If anyone has a chance to experience and visit this place, GO!!!...you will not be disappointed :) thanks for sharing.

That's the first time I visit such a wonderful interactive museum. I loved the headsets and the remotes in order to get more information. To hear the story from a person who was right there really hits home. I will recommend your museum to our NY city tour guide. He gave us his e-mail.

The Ground Zero Museum Workshop is a very humbling site to visit to see, feel, and experience as much as possible what happened on 9/11/01 and to hear the stories of those whose lives were taken,those who survived and those who participated in the recovery effort. As difficult as it was to hear some of the heroe's stories, it is a site that we strongly recommend that everyone see because "that day" is something that should never be forgotten by any American.

A visual, intimate and alternative account of 9/11

A picture says a thousand words... This couldn't be more true than at this workshop. The photographs, artefacts and stories behind them provide a sensitive, personal and powerful account of the 9/11 recovery. I'd thoroughly recommend the museum workshop to any visitor or tourist interested in finding out more about the 9/11 events.

We (family with kids) thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to view the museum collection in a small group setting. The collection brought us back to that time and place. It gives you a view of the recovery and what remained in a tasteful and appropriate manner.

You have to visit this museum, because the guide was the only one who could take photos of the world trade center tragedy. I was shocked when I quit the museum.
