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

View artifacts and photos of Ground Zero in a very small 2 room museum. Not good for small children. Good commentary on the artifacts and photos.

Our visit was a truly moving experience, all of the photographs and artefacts give you a real feel of what went on after 9/11 and the personal commentary by Gary Suson, the photographer, made it very personal. We also had the pleasure of meeting Gary and that made our visit even better. I would certainly recommend this to anyone and would also suggest you visit this museum before going to the 9/11 memorial.

a good experience

It's a small, one room exhibit. But so full of wonderful pictures and artifacts. It made that day come back to you in a different way. It made you experience that day again but this time in a personal way. I walked away feeling that I experienced that tragedy through different eyes; the eyes of the heroes that were part of the rescue operation and the clean up. It was heartwarming, sad and disquieting. It made me long for the spirit that the American people had that day. I pray we come together again.

Meaningful insight prior to visiting Ground Zero

It is much smaller than I imagined, but there were only 4 of us so it was intimate and quiet and we had lots of space and time to look at everything and read/hear about it. I can't imagine what a squeeze it would be if there were upwards to 15 in the tour group. It made our visit to Ground Zero itself more meaningful, and it allowed us to share the perspective of this tragedy through the eyes of the Fire Department and other involved personnel. As we passed Fire Halls in New York afterwards, it stopped us in our tracks. I would like to suggest that the fact that the entrance fee proceeds are distributed to 6 Ground Zero charities should have a higher profile. One of our party thought it was a private (for profit) enterprise until I pointed out otherwise to them. We were all very glad we went.

"A Museum Never to be Forgotten"

This museum is amazing - interesting, informative - however, very emotional. Although we did not know any of the victims or survivors of the 9/11 tragedy personally, the museum touched us so deeply. The photographs are very moving and the narratives enlightening. The photographer did an outstanding job portraying the compassion of the responders. Overall, an outstanding museum!

I would recommend this experience to anyone. It was very emotional but incredibly informative. They all should be very proud of the work they have done to document this historic event.
