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.

FEELING OF OVERWHELMING LOVE AND PATRIOTISM

The exhibit is absolutely so inspirational. This experience puts the visitor so close to the site, the emotions,and the terror, that must have been prevailed during this horrendous ordeal. The surge of love for our country and the citizens who stepped up was overwhelming. The images and the recorded voices made me realize how very vulnerable we are as a nation. This was my second visit., and I will visit again. May God continue to bless the United States of America.

Our Lives can change in an instant!

This was one of the most impressive things we saw on our visit to NYC in 2008

"Lest We never Forget"

It was so poignant without being obtrusive and gory. The pictures told a 1000 words and the audio attached to each picture told the story of that particular picture to the fullest.

The whole thing had deep meaning-one left this exhibit/lecture feeling a connection to those who not only left us on this fateful day but also to the loved ones they left behind.

I would recommend it highly to ech and everyone who visits NYC

If you were in new york on 9-11 its a reminder ...

I was here on business during 9-11. Stuck in the city for 3 days...I will never forget that SMELL as long as i live!

Enought time has passed to look back and rememberi the events in an objective way.

Did anyone is the USA sleep soundly for weeks afterwards? Was CNN your obsession?? Did you think about what happened constantly??

We all wanted to understand WHY???

I cant immagine the trauma for the families and those that lost love ones...it will be part of whom they are for the rest of their lives.

this museum is a fabulous, well presented, gentle but poinant reminder for us " to never forget that day in world history "and how it effected every single person in the USA if not the world.

I will never forget that day and this museum honors those who died in an appropriate respectful way.

God bless ever one invloved in keeping the spirit and memories of those alive who dies in 9-11 and whom since died as a result of their selfless efforts in the recovery.

very well put together room of fascinating photographs and artefacts from ground zero,

I never thought that one room would keep us interested for a whole 2 hour visit but we were all so pleased we had come across this museum and would thoroughly recommend a visit.

There are some genuine keepsakes from the 9-11 aftermath here. I was hoping for more video, analysis, or interactive discussions relating to the attacks and the recovery.

We will definitely not forget

This was definitely the best activity we did whilst in NY, although the word activity does not justify the experience, as it was so moving and we will never forget the individual life changing stories we were told about . The tour, which lasted two hours, is based on Gary Suson's official photographs taken at Ground Zero during the recovery and was very emotional and sensitive. At the start of the tour we were taken to a small room which held 100 artifacts from 9/11. After a short talk we were given an audio handset and given the chance to take part in a self guided walk through the room selecting indiviual atefacts and the stories behind them, which made the experience very personal. Our tour was extra special as Gary was there in person and gave a personal account of his experiences. I have no doubt in recommending this tour.

While filled with personal stories of loss from the tragedy itself, we were moved by the fact that the museum felt more like a tribute to the recovery workers. No photos of the tragedy (which many of us have seen over and over) but rather photos and stories of the men and women who spent months tirelessly working to recover their loved ones or the loved ones of others. This was one of the best and most worthwhile things we did in the city!
