Very sobering experience

My boyfriend and I had never been to NY so when we finally did the Ground Zero Museum workshop was definitely on our list of things to do. Although a small museum there is a lot to look at and understand. The self-guided aspect worked out well, it allowed you plenty of time to make your way through everything and really provided that first-hand perspective. We left the museum in a very emotional state and felt that we had a much better understanding of what the men, women and children involved went through on that horrific day.

I definitely recommend taking the opportunity to check out this museum.

Emotionally Moving Experience

All three of us, one of which was working at the Pentagon on 9/11, felt that the trip to the workshop was well worth seeing and came away, again, moved by the heroism and sadened by the loss that we all experienced that day. I would recommend this to everyone who visits the 9/11 Memorial.

Celebrating my 50th Birthday - 4.8.2013.

I wanted to take back with me and share history of 9/11 with my family in celebrating my 50th Birthday, A forever lasting memory at ground zero museum and at the pools. The workshop was amazing. Very real and graphic to feel and see the emotional lose of families, brothers, sisters, husbands, wife's, friends, and colleges around the world. There are no words to describe or explain how you will feel until you see the pictures' bringing it all together. Mr. Suson' did an outstanding job complying the footage of 9/11 to honor the victims' and families who lost a special gift. I am grateful for the workshop and the opportunity to have been a part of it, even if is was through picture's and history. I will never forget that day 9/11 or my 50th birthday.

Sincerely,

Valerie Saenz-Partida

El Paso, Texas.

Powerful, Self-Paced Experience

Our son, now nearly 21, was in elementary school on 9/11/2001. He has Prader-Willi syndrome and mild to moderate mental impairment, but he has recently become very interested in learning more about the events of that day and how it affected people. He has watched several DVD documentaries about 9/11, but he still wants to know more. This museum was a wonderful way for him to learn at his own pace -- he controlled which photo or artifact to look at and for how long, and he could play and replay the audio tour items as necessary. On a personal level, I found the displays and the commentary to be very powerful as well as informative, and my husband did too.

Touching and very Memorable

The museum is amazing! Very touching to see all the artifacts from 9/11. My husband and I are from Sydney, Australia and have never seen anything like it. It was so moving to hear how it all came about and the stories behind each piece of history,

When we visit NYC again, we would definitely revisit the museum and definitely recommend it to others visiting NYC in the near future.

Don't Miss.

Highly recommend for adults and teens. Although it wasn't as meaningful to our 10 year old, the tour did spark some conversation and thoughtful questions for him. Better to take this tour prior to visiting the 9/11 memorial.

A must see in NYC!

A very small museum in wich you really get a good look into everything that happened after 9/11 on ground zero. The way the museum is formed is super, the space is perfectly used! We had 2 hours time at the museum but could have used another 2 hours to really see and hear everything. All 4 of us have the same opinion, everyone traveling to NYC, should go here. A very respectfull and tasteful way to give an inside, WOW! Didn't think it was possible to give this much info in such a small space. Groups are small wich is also a big plus. So, great compliments to Mr Suson for the way he made this museum, the pictures and his spoken words, and to the people who work there. Thanks for this experience, we will never forget!

Time Well Spent

An atypical "museum"....rather a collection of story telling photographs and artifacts. It was a valuable introduction to seeing the memorial....perhaps there are plans to bring the exhibit closer to the memorial? The entire space needed a deep cleaning.

Emotionally draining, but so worth it.

I visited this museum before taking the subway a few blocks to the Ground Zero Memorial site. I'm glad I did. Seeing the images and hearing the personal stories represented by the photographs at the workshop museum provided context for my visit to Ground Zero making it much more meaningful.

The museum's mission is to promote healing from the the trauma of 911. I found the visit very disturbing because it brought me back to the feelings that I had that day watching the horror unfold: Sorrow for all the innocent lives that were so violently and tragically affected, and an overwhelming feeling that the world is not a safe place. I left feeling very anxious. However uncomfortable it made me though, each victim deserves to be remembered and appreciated. Each hero deserves to be honored. The grief of every person who lost a loved one needs to be recognized. I'm glad that I showed up to do it.

This place is amazing , we arrived late as we got

So lost trying to find the place, we were in a yellow

Cab and was very shocked to find even the cab

Driver never knew where this place was, but saying

That he was very good at making sure we were at

The correct place, :-) x was expecting a much bigger

Place with signage, but honestly once we were there

It was the most educating and warm place of our trip,

We all as a group learned things we would never

Had a chance to know about the events of 9/11 !!

The way the building collapsed and the German

Beer cans, well it makes you look at things differently,

The shiny black insurance building !!, ( So Shocked),

The suffering of the men and women whom gave

There time to search and now are suffering

With respiratory problems!!. A place that shows

You the true events of that day the world changed,

The staff were so knowledgeable, and answered

All our questions , and never once tried to push you

To hurry up or buy there merchandise !!, but the books are

A must, x x we did this befor we went to the 9/11

Fountains and it honestly made things fit into place and gave

Us a better understanding when we arrived at

The fountains ect.... A must must must do x x
