The Essence of 9/11
Sat, Oct 7, 06   1:00 PM chill1977 Female 20-29 International Tourist(s) Individual
This museum is a photographic journey into the depths of what occured that fateful day. More importantly, the story of 9/11 is shared in a tasteful way that honors the spirit of all those who have been affected by what took place. Although the many images communicate the pain and tragedy of 9/11 those same images also convey the beautiful spirit of the people of New York and their unwillingness to give up. The Ground Zero Museum is more than just a museum, it is an experience to be reflected upon and cherished- Gary Marlon Suson's photographs capture the essence of the human experience after 9/11 in a powerful and moving way that is not to be missed!

The most poiniant way to understand 911

We visited both the tribute centre and WTC walking tour and the ground zero workshop museam. Both were very different and touching but the ground zero museam felt much more intimate and close to the experience. Right now ground zero itself is a construction site and will be for many years and while the WTC tribute centre is worth a visit this was for me was the more touching experience. The photos, videos, artifcats from the rubble, talking face to face with someone that had been there and the background music make for an immersing way to feel some of what was felt that day and in the aftermath. Tissues are provided and required by most of us who saw the video and heard the stories relating to the photos and the objects. The book on sale is well worth the money as well! Although this gallery is not at ground zero it is worth the trip. Few things these day touch you to the point that you feel you will never be the same again but our experience at the ground zero workshop tour was definately one of them. May peace join us all and may no one in the world forget

Location is kept a secret as it is in an inconvenient location. Over priced.

Awesome Experience

It was a worth while experience. Gary Suson captured the emotion of the event that I have never seen before. It put a sense of reality into the whole viewing. After 5 years, it is still very emotional to go and see. I will be back to see it again.

Do not leave NYC w/out visiting this museum!

This museum is about Heros! Those true American Heros that gave everything they had to find the injured. You will get a true look inside the tragedy, you will see pieces of history & you will hear the stories of those that were there day after day...

It is truly a Once In A Lifetime experience! Seeing the images, hearing the stories & touching the past. This is a special place & it will touch your soul on so many levels. No matter where you are from or how old you are - you should take time out of your day to day schedule & make this a must see! My mom, my daughter & myself - 3 generations- spent the afternoon at the Ground Zero Museum. What we felt will stay with us forever! Thank You!

Very emotional and real

We both enjoyed the museum and workshop. The reason it is called a workshop is because you can touch some of the objects found in ground zero. This made the events on 9/11 more real and put a personal touch to each individual killed that day.

Tastefully done, and had a strong emotional impact

I am glad I saw this exhibit. It was worthwhile, since it made the tragedy more real for those who live farther away, and reminded us of the immensity of what happened there.

Not touched

I could not connect the artifacts I saw with the facts of that day.

The images in documentaries are much stronger in my opinion.

Also it is not like a museum, it is a small room and you have to be there at the correct time, you are not allowed to get in a few minutes before.

Not recommended

Powerful and moving experience.

Don't let the small size of this musuem fool you. It is well worth your time to see it. There alot of pictures and some of the actual artifacts that survived the collaspe. A few you can actually pick up and hold. You see a short movie, then then is an auto-tour of the musuem. There are also a few things you can buy. Gary was our guide that day. He is very nice and able to answer any questions we had. So if you can go to New York City, I highly recommend that you add this musuem to your intinerary.

This museum is amazing! When you walk in it is a small room and you think this is it? But after meeting Mr. Suson and his volunteers, watching his video, seeing his photographs and hearing him talk about his experience at Ground Zero and the personal stories of the men and women who worked during the rescue efforts, you will be blown away. This collection is an intimate celebration of the dedicated men and women who worked to rescue and recover the victims of the 9-11 attacks. We were so happy that this was where we chose to spend our one day in New York City!
