The museum was very well put together. The photos were moving and infomative. It was especially nice to have the photographer at the museum and tell some about his experience. Being able to touch some of the items and listen to his commentary on his work was very informative. I was so glad I was able to purchase his book so I could really take the time to read about each photo and even more.

Our family enjoyed this experience beyond words. It was inspiring, but did pull at our heart strings. Gary Suson, the founder of the museum, and the photographer who shares his emotions through his art was luckily there at the museum the day of our tour. He autographed his book for us to. The museum is very small, and it should stay that way. It's intimate and keeps you close to the items on display. I truely hope my children absorbed the importance of the day this museum showcases. Thank you Gary for allowing us an inside view of the pain, sadness and laughter many families of 9-11 experienced. The Eisenhauer family......San Antonio TX

A small group of adult people who were very impressed with the sensitive way in which the artifacts were displayed abd explained with the help of the personal communication system with headphones a very humbling experience

The museum was very well and sensitively presented. It was an amazing way to present such real and harrowing images of that fateful day. We are still talking about it now.A bonus was meeting the photographer himself .

Would strongly recommend a visit to this museum.

Images and materials on display were interesting but other than the audio equipment, the facilities and' museum' room were poor. More akin to a provincial local society effort than a major city show. In particular the outside waiting area and entry route into the 'museum' room was to say the least unappealing!

Also expensive and limited compared to the official ground zero site exhibition and memorial which truly reflected our expectation of a professional visitor attraction dealing with this sad event.

My daughter and I were mesmorised and felt honoured from the moment we entered the museum. We were so lucky to have Gary as our presenter-the most amazing man who has developed a truly respectful and unigue place for people to learn, remember and honour those who died and the power of love in healing.

Thankyou - we will be back when we return to NYC. In the meantime, we urge all to visit Ground Zero Museum, a powerful and provacative experience inspired by such immense dedication to preserving such precious photographs, items, stories and memories.

Yours faithfully

Excellent, thought provoking, moving

Didn't quite know what to expect especially when told it was all in one room. The voice overs to the pictures are excellent. We were all totally absorbed for two hours.

Incredibly emotional

I did not know what to expect of this museum. I was initially surprised that it was all in 1 room. That is the reason they only except 25 people at each tour. It is on the 2nd floor of a small building in the meatpacking district of New York. It is NOT at Ground Zero site. The staff was very pleasant describing the procedure of what you were going to see. (It's really all around you anyway) The first thing you see is two videos, one of the photographer and this museum he started, second is the video of his description of some of the people he met taking the photos. His description and emotion touched me and brought back the memories I had of that fateful day. Since I am local (from NJ), that day had significance to me because my husband was at Newark airport at the time going on a plane to Chicago. When I heard a plane hit the World Trade Center I tried to call him but could not get through after several tries. I waited a few min. and listened to the radio in the car on my way back home. He finally reached me to say he was OK and to come get him at Newark. So, this event was emotional for me and I wanted to see what was done. They do not show anyone who had died, just the firemen and police going through the rescues.

They have done a great job explaining all the artifacts collected and it's worth a trip if you want to know. They only give you 2 hrs which is plenty of time to view the artifacts they have. I was glad I went and would recommend it.

I don't know if this museum will continue on once the one at Ground Zero is opened.

An amazing experience

One room, but what a room. Informative narrative given at the beginning and then time to look at everything with an audio tour. It is a tasteful and sensetive journey in photographs and artifactsof post 9/11. If visiting New York do not miss it. A highly emotional experience, enjoyed may not be the right word but we did for all the right reasons. We visited from the Uk and will make sure anyone we know visiting NYC knows about this gem.
