emotional and moving - Never Forget 911

Our tour guides were fabulous, informative and very passionate about the cause of Ground Zero. At the same time they were discrete and caring. The museum is built as a healing experience which is why you don't see the planes crashing into the towers, but the movies and each picture in the musem has a story that goes straight to your heart. The terrorists killed so many innocent people with such evil thats incomprehensible, but brought America and the western world together so none of us will NEVER FORGET the lost lives of our heroes and the freedom we will continue to fight for.

I would recomend this museum to everyone, except small children. It would be nice if the place would be a bit more roomy, but the staff was great, informative and we left with an incredible feeling.

Part of the Puzzle

The Ground Zero Museum Workshop had a fantastic array of pieces to both enlighten and provide a more complete picture of the devastation from 9/11. However I found the overenthusiastic smiling and cheerful hostesses not helpful in allowing me the space to absorb the magnificent details the place encouraged. And while the museum was full of treasures, the small size did not allow the space to be one with your own thoughts. I think it would be useful to have all the artifacts and pictures arranged in an order, so that one doesn't have to jump around so much when absorbing it all. In addition, having additional museum visiting times would be more beneficial and help to allow a more intimate and less crowded viewing. All this being said, the museum is definitely worth viewing, but rather as one more important piece of the puzzle. You may also consider visiting the official tribute center, next to ground zero. It also plays an important part in telling the story.

A wonderful opportunity to revisit 9/11 from a completely different perspective - these objects, photos and their narratives capture more than words alone could ever describe and give a true sense of what it was like being part of the recovery efforts. Highly recommend it!

The museum represents the tragedy of 9/11, but also clearly demonstrates the humanity that this event brought out in people.

Perhaps the tour could include the current state of Ground Zero, maybe even the plans of Freedom Tower....ending the tour on a positive not. After all, this is called 'Ground Zero Museum'. It's not 'FDNY Ground Zero Museum'. Anything relative to Ground Zero can be included.

Ultimately, I understand that only so much information can be included.

Lastly, the free chocolates were a nice touch...but in the restroom?

wonderful tribute to those who gave their lives

Amazing place! Makes you think and think about what happened that day. For a room that is only 1000 square feet, full of information and artifacts displayed and explained in an informative way. A must see. It is informative tribute, images are moving and thought provoking. We were lucky enough to attend on a day when Gary Suson (founder and photographer) was in residence.

Combine this with St. Paul's

The museum guides are very respectful, and set a pitch-perfect tone for the visit. In the group in the museum during our visit there was a 9/11 widow and I think she felt OK with how the visit was handled and the way in which the museum works. The background stories of the people/objects in the photos were interesting. I would recommend combining this museum visit with a visit to St. Paul's Chapel, about a block away from Ground Zero. St. Paul's provided meals, a place of refuge, and care for rescue workers for 8-9 months --- in other words, what went on with the rescue workers photographed by Gary after they left "the Pit." Seeing the two together provided a memorable morning.
