New York - Must Do

We set aside a day to just cover some of the 9/11 memorials. Our day started with the Ground Zero Museum Workshop Tour - it is an incredible tribute and we would highly recommend it. Two hours is perfect and gives you the right amount of time to take in all the photo's and artifacts. I can only imagine the emotional toll it must have taken to put this exhibition together. After the Workshop Tour we went on to the 9/11 Memorial and then to St Paul's Church. By starting with the Workshop Tour it made the impact at the other two sites that much more significant. If you are planning to visit the 9/11 Memorial I would really encourage you to take in this exhibition first.

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.

To do before/ after visiting Ground Zero

Ground Zero is very emotional but no explanation or background. Visiting the museum first brings an entire experience more meaningful

Excellent Preview to 9/11 Memorial Visit

We took 7 grandchildren ages 9-15 years old. The Museum has amazing photos, artifacts and information that is informative and emotionally moving. Being able to hear the photographer's voice explain the photos and actually hold artifacts makes the museum a very special place. A must see before visiting the 9/11 Memorial.

AMAZING PLACE!

This museum is a must if you are interested in 9/11. It is best to go here before visiting ground zero as you learn so much from the informative and friendly staff. The audio guides are concise and full of interesting facts. I took my son who is 16 and he was fascinated and very moved by the items on display. The mood is sombre but not depressing and the staff focus on the good that has come out of such a disastrous event. I would highly recommend it.

Our highlight of New York City

Having visited ground zero first, the museum was even more meaningful. I have, from Michigan, been thoroughly touched by Gary's poignant and very telling photographs of the great sadness and yet an awesome sense of love and utter support throughout the events during and after 911. It was a very moving experience to see all of his photographs together in the museum. Our guide helped us to understand the photographs, and memorabilia, the stories behind each, and even pointed out for us some of the more humorous photos and their stories. We were each equipped with earphones to listen further as Gary told the stories of the pictures from his perspective being at ground zero, and witnessing firsthand the emotions and sadness, and complete support and respect of all helping from around the country. We were very fortunate to have our tour at a time when Gary was present and we were able to meet him. Thank you for a very inspirational experience!

Incredible experience that touches your heart

The pictures were amazing and each one told a story. There were so many artifacts from Ground Zero...and there were stories I heard on the headphones that I had never heard before. Very well done.

As I believe every American should visit Washington DC in their lives...I now believe every American should visit this Museum in their lives. It was incredibly moving! If you are going to be in NYC don't even hesitate...buy your ticket and go!
