Very small Museum of well presented photos

The location is hard to find if you are not from the area. Not to far from the E Train on 14 street. But location is not well marked. Also if you arrive early, there is no place to wait for your tour. While the presentation of the Photos and artifacts from the recovery effort of Ground Zero was well done, I really didn't have much connection with it or interest in the subject. It all seemed personal for the families and local community than it did for me as a tourist.

I recommend for all to go and see. It is extremely emotional. You are up close and personal with actual items from the Twin Towers. You can even pick stuff up and hold it! Worth every dollar spent!

I have been to the WTC Memorial site three times and was impressed, however, this museum is the most

profound experience of all. The image and the artifacts are housed in an intimate setting which focuses attention immediately to the recovery stories. A film is shown to orient the audience to the work of the photographer

who created this museum and it is evocative and heartbreaking. The audio commentary accompanying each

exhibit is detailed and informative. This is a MUST-SEE museum in the city and is quite close to the Highline

which makes for a wonderful walk after being in the room for two hours. Exceptional experience.

The museum was a great experience and one I would highly recommend. The pictures and artifacts were very special to see and I appreciated the photos and what they represented. The photographer definitely got some amazing photos from such a tragic event.

A very memorable two hours. A personal and moving opportunity to see some of the real stories behind the terrible events of 9/11. We followed with a visit to Ground Zero which was packed and much less personal an experience. Only downside is that you have to be on time, we nearly missed our slot as our bus was slow. Worth warning visitors they need to arrive on time.

This place is very special.

It is a tiny museum and very emotional and personal experience.

It is truly a healing place and worth seeing.

Very personal

We booked tickets for our family of four, Mom, Dad and two teen-aged sons on the recommendation of the Trip Advisor community. It was very moving for all of us. The museum is tiny, basically the size of a studio apartment. Our tour group was made up of 8 people including us. However, the wonderful photographs, artifacts and narration via headphones made the visit there well worth it. Our tour leader was great, too. He was knowledgeable, professional and respectful. I have to say that one couple clearly did not grasp the fact that the museum is a sacred place to most people. They arrived late with the wife wearing a childish teddy bear head-piece thingie with eyes on it! They then left early after requesting that the tour leader take a picture of them inside the museum striking poses while holding sacred artifacts fashioned by ironworkers for families of WTC victims. Bravo to the tour leader who quietly did as asked and then bid the clueless couple a gracious good-bye.

We enjoyed every part of this museum. It begins with an excellent guide who sets the stage for you and then in a very intimate setting, you get to see, hear, and feel what it was like during the recovery period of 911. The stories are endearing and heartfelt. Thank you Gary Suson for capturing what others could not.
