I would have rathered gone to Ground Zero. The location of this museum is out of the way and I didn't find the presentation at all moving.

A Must See

The museum touched me in a very special way. It showed the "after effects" to every day people. I liked it because it wasn't about the dreadful day itself, but the tough and touching moments after. I felt seeing the recovery in the eyes of one compassionate man instead of the media was the key ingredient in making this museum a must see. As a first time visitor to New York, I could have missed the other sites and my trip would have still been great, not going to this museum would have taken away from the "trip of a lifetime" feeling I had after we returned home.

Celebrating my 50th Birthday - 4.8.2013.

I wanted to take back with me and share history of 9/11 with my family in celebrating my 50th Birthday, A forever lasting memory at ground zero museum and at the pools. The workshop was amazing. Very real and graphic to feel and see the emotional lose of families, brothers, sisters, husbands, wife's, friends, and colleges around the world. There are no words to describe or explain how you will feel until you see the pictures' bringing it all together. Mr. Suson' did an outstanding job complying the footage of 9/11 to honor the victims' and families who lost a special gift. I am grateful for the workshop and the opportunity to have been a part of it, even if is was through picture's and history. I will never forget that day 9/11 or my 50th birthday.

Sincerely,

Valerie Saenz-Partida

El Paso, Texas.

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.

This "biggest little museum" left a lot of feelings in my heart! It provides interesting information and deep impression and compels you to consider the human beings from the very new points. Thanx to its creators!

An informative & moving experience

It was a great experience, learning about Ground Zero and the aftermath of 9/11. The focus was on getting New York and Ground Zero back on its feet, not dwelling too much on the actual attack. I think that is the only right approach, it's a positive message. Through stories about the firemen, you can empathize with them and have a greater understanding about what it was like for them. Moving & emotional, but always positive. I highly recommend it.

A somber reminder

We really enjoyed our visit to the workshop. I liked that we could listen at our leisure to the different descriptions around the room. One of the most remarkable takeaways for me personally was regarding the amount window glass from the buildings, where I was at the moment when I heard the news and turning on the TV as quickly as possible. I found the exhibit tasteful and respectful of the families of the victims.

Wonderful job!

Very emotional and real

We both enjoyed the museum and workshop. The reason it is called a workshop is because you can touch some of the objects found in ground zero. This made the events on 9/11 more real and put a personal touch to each individual killed that day.
