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 respectful and moving display

My husband and I didn't know quite what to expect at the workshop We found a tastfeful and very respectful tribute to the people who lost their lives as well as to the first responders who worked for months at such a trajic scene.

The faces and stories of these heroes showed the intensity of their day to day lives through the ongoing search and rescue efforts. The personal stories that were told helped to put the horrors in perspective.

We both thought that, somber as it was, the workshop did a very good job of chronicling these events, through pictures, artifacts and stories of what was such a horrific day in our history.

Our guide was very knowlegable and respectful.

Coming from England we witnessed 9/11 only from TV coverage and although the there was full coverage at the time of the devasting event the news did not carry on to tell the real life storys behind and after the initial few weeks. We wanted to come to the Ground Zero Museum to see for ourselves how the people of New York and the rest of America showed extreme bravery and courage for the months and years that followed. The Museum Workshop was a very moving picture of that time and I can only say that I had no idea of the scale of devastation and we did not realise the loss and time it has taken for America to recover. The Ground Zero Museum Workshop showed us a true picture of this in a clear and sympathetic manner - not trying to shock but just stating th facts. One of the highlights of our trip.

This is a diamond in the rough. This museum is very small, but is done so tastefully and is definitely a must see for everyone. I would highly recommend.

My daughter and I wanted to go to the 9/11 sight having seen it a year before and a year after the terrible collapse. My daughter read about the man who was allowed to photograph and keep some of the articles that survived that terrible time. We found it very interesting and heartfelt, giving the people a voice. It was truly respectful to them and the firefighters and police that came to help. I would recommend it.

Of the 6 "tours" we did in NYC this was my favorite! Upon first arriving we were quite skeptical due to the size and the outside entry to the museum, but as soon as the initial video rolled, I instantly became enraptured and from there only became more enthralled. I would HIGHLY recommend this experience to anyone. It was so fascinating to see some of the things seen in the news were actually here and so close to you. It moved you to feeling a deep part of involvement

Skip the "Ground Zero Workshop Tour."

1. The word "workshop" misleading...also the word "tour." Suggest deleting.

2. The word "museum" might be replaced with "display." Not museum quality.

3. Room was messy with non-museum boxes and papers. Little space up stairs not inviting. Stairs not mentioned.

4. All items were not numbered.

5. 25% of information was most interesting

6. Seating was hodge-podge; drinking fountain did not have enough cups for a two-hour visit of x# guests.

Meaningful and unique experience

We appreciating the exhibit greatly - and the opportunity to meet the photographer. We are a church youth group - and most of our kids were 3-5 years old when 911 happened. The museum helped them understand this event in a way that many other exhibits, etc., did not. A moving and one of a kind experience.

This venue is very small but packed with very emotion provoking photos from 9/11. Our time there was very well spent. I would highly recommend this museum.
