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.

Totally surprised

We were sceptical upon arrival at the building where the museum was located. Not sure if it was a legitimate museum but after entering the building and realizing what it actually was, we were very impressed at the content. It was highly emtionally. And a few times I found myself coming to tears. Thank you for having tissues around the room. There were stories that we never knew about. We highly recommend taking the time to listen to the photographer's personal stories of ground zero. And most of all, the guys that ran the museum were so informed and answered all our questions. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Small museum but significant impact

Poignant photography respectfully taken and displayed that reveals the emotion and reality of 9/11 plus non-personal items gathered from the site. Although the museum is just one medium sized room, the time we spent there was extremely worthwhile

Outstanding and Unforgetable

We took this tour the day after the 911 Memorial tour - Gary Susan's narration together with the pictures and artifacts brought home much more of the impact on so many people and the lingering effects - than the tv and press were able to do. I for one am so glad we found this workshop and museum tour - it truly is unforgettable and very moving and is a measure of the strength of the human spirit against such an atrocity. The bravery of those involved in the recovery is outstanding.

This small museum, is a very emotional experience. My husband and I were both moved to tears hearing about that tragic day. It is not like any museum i have ever visited. You get audio headphones and go round to each picture-item and hear the story behind it. This place is well worth visiting before you go to Ground Zero.. 10/10 for the whole experience
