It was O.K Don't know that I would visit again

It was O.K . The neighborhood didn't seem like the best place to be, even the cab driver said are you sure this is the right address?, but once we were greeted at the door by a nice looking young lady, I felt better. I expected the museum to be bigger than it was, and was a bit disappointed, because there were more pictures than items displayed. We took my grandson with us (11yrs old) I think he enjoyed it, because he liked the companion? (electronic listening devise) and he could go at his own pace and view what he wanted. The tour guides were very friendly and knowledgeable, but I thought the souvenirs were a bit pricey. $6.00 for a postcard. It was nice to visit once, but I don't think I will go back.

Lots of color for a smaller space

Very well organized w/ photos and the audio narratives for context.

The artifacts themselves are the most unique and impacting. Unlike any other sort of museum interaction.

Some interesting stuff, but overall disappointing
Fri, Jul 30, 10   1:00 PM troyandtodd Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The musuem is a single small room filled with pictures and few display items from ground zero. The tour begins with a very brief introduction by a guide, then a short movie. After that, the entire time is spent with an audio headset where you enter the number of the picture on the wall that you want to hear about. A brief audio file is then played that tells something about that picture. Some of it is interesting, but it gets tiring just listening to taped recordings. There is no live human interaction. In addition, many of the most interesting facts are covered in the short movie, then repeated when you enter the number for the photo displayed on the wall. Definitely not worth the ticket price.

Small, but Powerful

This was one of the most powerful presentations I have seen in a long time. Not only because the subject matter evokes emotions, but how the presentation was made, the individual displays, the small venue, the short descriptions of each picture all lent to providing a moving memorial to those who were so closely affected by this tragic event.. Thank you.

AMAZING & HEART-WRENCHING!!!!!

I was skeptical about this tour because I had never heard of the museum and alot of New Yorkers aren't aware of it either. My husband and I were there for three days and this was the most amazing, heart-wrenching, wonderful, tragic experience of our lives. Gary went through alot (God Bless Him) to show the American people that Recovery can happen. I believe this museum needs to be more well known. It really hits home!! People need to see this so they don't forget!! It not only helped us remember what happened on Sept. 11, but also made us more aware of what it was really like and what Gary and all the other Recovery workers went through. People need to remember this tragic event. ..Dale & Cherie Tweedie, Alton, IL

A moving tribute to events after 9/11

This exhibition provided the story behind the many images we've seen in the papers since 9/11. It made me realise that so much good and compassion has come out of a horrific and senseless act.

Not to be Missed

We, and our two teenage granddaughters, spent the full two hours allotted at the Ground Zero Workshop. The films, photos and memorabilia that we viewed are now embedded into our short-term, and hopefully, long-term memory banks. Individuals and families visiting NYC should not miss this opportunity to relive and learn more about this most important event and acts of heroism associated with it.

Worth every minute of your time.

This is a small museum but very well presented. We definitely will recommend it to family and friends. It's a very emotional experience but something everyone should experience. We already plan on a return visit w/our 14yr. old. son. He read every page of the book we purchased on our visit. Thank you.

Just a suggestion: Also, sell sweatshirts and/or t-shirts in remembrance of 9-11-2001.
