Absolutely an amazing museum

ground zero museum is an amazingly small museum but is the most moving museum around. It takes you right into the heart of 9/11. I doubt that anyone can come away from this museum without shedding a tear

It seems a little underwhelming when you first get there. But the stories and the artifacts are amazing.

Powerful museum

We went on the 10 year anniversary of 9/11. This was a very eye-opening and powerful experience. This museum is very small and intimate; but worth the admission and experience. Don't overlook it.

Not sure I would recommend

This was not exactly what we were thinking when we purchased our tickets. The room is very small & over crowded. Some facts were interesting but I didnt know I would be listening to a pre-recorded video. Trying to move around the room was difficult due to so many people & the room being small. Don't show up earlier cuz you'll just be standing around waiting for them to come down & open the door. I learned a few new facts & got some neat photos.

A Must See!

A superbly done display of photographs taken by Gary Suson and artifacts found at Ground Zero during the rescue efforts with each display providing a touching story describing its significance. A must see for those wanting to gain knowledge in the less publicized information about this tragic event.

Honest Insight into this Tragic Event

This is a worthwhile visit which gives an emotional insight into the aftermath as seen by the firefighters. The stories and information passed on is truly touching and brings home the impact on so many people.

It would perhaps be worthwhile putting these amazing pictures and stories with other experiences, and remembering that so many other nationalities were also involved.

Definitely worth a visit before going to the site.

OK but not as strong as I would have expected

I took my son to the museam expecting to give him a good sense of 09-11, the impact on the US and the aftermath. In reviews people mentioned that the museam was small and I was very surprised to see it was in one small room. In addition the video's played were only on a small plasma screen on a normal stand, this could have been so much better.

I think the actual subject matter and imagary were excellent with some stunning photographs combined with interesteing audio descriptions. However in my mind this was a too narrow perspective and I would not recommend to anyone who wanted a complete overview of the subject.

Well Worth The Time To Visit

I really didn't know what to expect ahead of time - and was very pleasantly surprised. The combination of video presentation and self-paced audio tour worked out well for this venue. The size of the group seemed appropriate for the room size, and people were polite about trying not to get in each others way. The "tour guides" were pleasant and once their initial presentation was over faded into the background. I saw on the website that they accept tips but I didn't see (and I looked) for a place to put tips. I liked the fact that they had a book open for you to browse through, in addition to signed and sealed copies for purchase. They had little cups of water available and also had a restroom. I wasn't enthusiastic about having to put my purse in the cubby with everyone else's belongings, but there weren't any problems. It was a respectful and peaceful experience, appropriate for the gravity of the museum content. It's definitely a "tour" I would recommend to others traveling to NYC.
