Intimate setting packed full of interesting facts.

The "museum" itself is set in the originators old apartment in the meat packing district. The walls are covered with photographs taken at the recovery site of 911 over a period of a few years. Their are actual pieces taken from the site on show and after a very enthusiastic greeting from the young chap hosting the session you are given headphones and you simply tap in the number on the photo or piece of memorabillia and the photographer who was the only one allowed on site narrates the story behind that particular piece. When I visited their was only 4 of us attending, we had plenty of space to wander and listen to the naration. On first entering the apartment I wondered how we would spend two hours in their but once you start listening to the stories it does take some time to get round all the things on show. We were told that many relatives of victims have visited and I can understand how they would find this setting comforting and intimate, you are allowed to touch and handle the things on show.

10/10 for the young curator who was very informative and passionate about the museum and its contents, it is in good hands!

This is my second visit to this incredible tribute to those who lost their lives at ground zero and those who helped with recovery and rescue. I had to come again and bring a group of my friends with me to experience this special place. Words cannot describe our experience. If you are going to nyc you can't miss this. Bring lots of tissues. I shed many tears. Very moving!!

Amazing exhibit that leaves you thinking after you

This is quite a little nugget in NYC. I wold have never known about it had a friend not told me, but I am so glad she did. It is small in size but large in impact. Still thinking about it three days after visiting. Well worth your time in NYC and way better than 9/11 memorial in my opinion.

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.

Well Done Exhibit

My group consisted of two eighteen year old girls and their mothers. The girls were kindergarteners on 9-11 so it was poignant for them to view this exhibit. It is history that they relate to and will be responsible for passing on. The space is respectful and attempts to tell the stories of recovery without being overly manipulative about creating heightened emotion. That being said, it is an emotional display. The museum is one room filled with photographs and artifacts. The whole thing takes less than an hour, but it was my favorite part of my visit to NYC.

A must see!!

This was by far the most emotional and informative museum I have ever visited. Definitely brings you closer to the 9/11 tragedy and provided insight on things never imagined. The opeining videos brought the entire room to tears and I gained a new respect for NYFC & NYPD. This is definietly something you must do if you come to NY or cannot decide on what to do. I highly recommend coming here before seeing anything else related to 9/11.

You MUST MUST MUST visit

Despite having lost neither friends nor relatives on 9/11, we (myself, my husband, my 18 yr old son and 16 yr old daughter) all put Ground Zero top of our list of things to see and do for our holiday to NY Christmas to new year 2013/14. I think if you want to understand New York and it's people you must visit, and the workshop has got to be the best way to really experience this. The room is small, but packed with artefacts and photographs that are so poignant and moving, and all are included on an audio guide narrated by the one man who was allowed to photograph it all. The staff are knowledgebable, warm and friendly (chocolates are provided in the rest room!) and are prepared for tears as well as questions. If you only have time for one "museum", this has got to be it.

Peaceful informative experience

This really is a small museum that packs a punch. By keeping the number of guests to a minimum makes your visit to this museum a very intimate experience. Thank-you

What a way to learn and remember the recovery

This is an incredibly moving museum to help us to learn first hand what the recovery efforts immediately following the 9/11 tragedies. These people are true heroes. This is a must do stop when visiting NY for anything 9/11 related. I am from Florida and my husband is a retired fire fighter.
