Although you certainly could spend two hours, I found I was able to look at everything I wanted within an hour and fifteen minutes. It was explained that the musuem is purposefully small to allow for a specific type of setting. Sometimes 9/11 familiies visit and it is a comfortable space for them. The artifacts were interesting and I liked that the whole musuem was centered around respect for all. It was smaller and had less than I expected but I would still recommend a visit there. The hostess was wonderful.

Great material, but should let it speak for itself

The material, including rare artifacts, mementos, and photographs from 9/11 were very interesting, but I felt that the focus was made too much on the photographer. Obviously, it's because of him we have these photos, but I felt like they were overselling it a bit. The material speaks for itself, and the audio descriptions were very informative. Overall, I enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it.

Solemn tour! Interested in the tactile experience

As it should be, this was a moving and solemn tour experience. Small museum with a "big heart".

Touching and feeling the actual weight of the steel girders and the glass window shards from the World Trade Center really hit home the magnitude of these two towers.

Definitely worth it. This museum is located in Meatpacking District and should not be confused with the 9/11 Memorial Museum. The actual 9/11 museum is located at WTC Memorial in Financial District downtown and still has not opened.Yes, it is a smaller space than expected as one large room, but the content is rich in infornation with many photos and displays. the self guided tour portion is great. You can actually touch some remnants. Brought back a lot of memories for me as I am a native NYer who was working at the hospitals that day on 9/11. Very emotional as I remember these events like yesterday. Very peaceful music and Tissues discreetly placed around room. I would advise going at least once if you are visiting NY, but is estimated 2hrs. I went to the actual Ground Zero WTC memorial though first, then went to museum after. I was a little depressed after the museum due to solemnity of content, so was glad to go to the High Line Park after to decompress and get fresh air. We will bever forget!!

Might as well just buy the book

While the museum itself is interesting, I did not think it was worth the price tag. My biggest complaint is how hard they try to invoke an emotional response from you. It is an emotional experience, it doesn't need to be forced. Also it feels like the girls have given their speech so many times that they are robotic at doing it. Plus their super short shorts seem to take away from their credibility. They just look like college interns passing the time. While I am very glad that the images have been captured and preserved, I think I would have preferred to buy the book and have them to look at again and again. The artifacts are interesting, but nothing spectacular and the fuselage from the TWA flight resting on the floor seems irreverent.

Wonderful, wonderful exhibition - words simply cannot express the range of emotions felt during the visit. Beautifully presented - I'd go as far to say this should be a pilgrimage for any visitor to NY.

An unknown TREASURE!

This small museum can only be described as the most important museum we visited in New York. It is so moving and really brought home to us some of the reality of what went on after 9/11. Visiting Ground Zero Museum Workshop made our visit to the 9/11 memorial so much more meaningful. While the memorial is beautiful and inspiring, we would not have appreciated it as much without having gone to Ground Zero first!

We told all we met in New York how great it was and were amazed that local tour guides and hotel staff knew nothing about it. After we talked to them, they are all anxious to go the the workshop. We'd be glad to help spread the news about how great it is!!!
