Moving tribute to the workers at Ground Zero

Before I visited this museum, I had not taken on board how much work and effort was required to search through the remains of the Twin Towers and that there was life after the tragedy. It was fascinating and very moving to learn about the NYC firemen's very brave efforts at Ground Zero and to learn their own stories and of their official photographer, Gary Suson who gave many months of his time to document it all. The museum although very small makes for an intimate visit, with no more than 20 or so people allowed in at any one time. I can't recommend it more highly and hope that Gary's photographs will be included in the museum proposed by NY at the Ground Zero site.

Well worth the money especially since some is donated to the NYFD and other Ground Zero victim families, etc. Very moving experience. The guest is allowed to see all and touch some of the Ground Zero items. A well done and different perspective of the images we have all seen on the news.

My only criticism is that I would like to see it moved to a location much closer to Ground Zero so that the tourist can go to / from the site to the museum. Other than that, very well done, including the ability to sample some excellent lunchfare from the enclosed "Chelsea Park market" area 1 block away.

It was very moving and it gave me and my boyfriend an insight to/idea of the impact September 11 had on America and its people. It's remarkable that Gary and all these people came together in such an inspiring way and even more inspiring that Gary chose to put his whole life and soul into making this museum and thereby keeping the memory of this amazing recovery alive. In my opinion, the museum deserves all the attention it can get and I'm just thankful that I was fortunate enough to find out about it on

The Highlight of our Trip

We came to NYC from the midwest for a 5 day vacation and packed in everything we could. This workshop was without a doubt the most impactful, meaningful part of our trip. As expected, it was very emotional, but Gary and his staff have an amazing collection of WTC memories to share with the world. First, the young woman who welcomed us and introduced the museum to us was wonderful. She was full of empathy, and was able to introduce the exhibits with all of the delicacy they required and deserved. Then, to hear Gary tell his stories of each of the photos that he took, and each of the artifacts that he collected...I may not be a New Yorker, but I felt like I was there. Even though this tragedy happened over 10 years ago, the emotion was as raw as if it happened yesterday. I think every American needs to experience this museum. I appreciate everything that Gary and his team had to share with the world, and I think that the NYCFD chose the perfect artist to represent them.
