I thought that the workshop was truly thought provoking. I think that any and everybody that sees ground zero, should also attend this workshop. There were many things that I saw that were not in the news when this terrible event occurred.

This is our history and everybody should understand this event so that we do not forget it and so that it does not happen again.

Thank you for the insight and for all of the truly thought provoking facts of this terrible event that occurred over seven years ago.

We will never forget.

I was so moved by the stories. It is so easy to forget the magnitude of the sorrow. I was impressed by the photos and I am so glad that we included this in our visit to New York!

Our primary visit to NYC was to visit the Intrepid, we did this prior to seeing Ground Zero Workshop then we went sight seeing on the Citysights tour bus. We all kept talking about how the workshop affected us and how it was the highlight of the day for us. It was a delight to have the photographer present his work to us along with his stories of 9/11. Thank you, Gary Suson, for the opportunity to view your work. Please don't miss this wonderful attraction.

Powerful, Self-Paced Experience

Our son, now nearly 21, was in elementary school on 9/11/2001. He has Prader-Willi syndrome and mild to moderate mental impairment, but he has recently become very interested in learning more about the events of that day and how it affected people. He has watched several DVD documentaries about 9/11, but he still wants to know more. This museum was a wonderful way for him to learn at his own pace -- he controlled which photo or artifact to look at and for how long, and he could play and replay the audio tour items as necessary. On a personal level, I found the displays and the commentary to be very powerful as well as informative, and my husband did too.

Even though this museum workshop is contained in one room, it packs a big punch. The photos and momentos on display are deeply moving. They take you back to 9/11/2001. I was moved to tears a couple times, and I actually found that it had more impact than the 9/11 Memorial itself. (With all the chaos of the crowds and security just to get into the actual Memorial, it took away the solemnity of the site for me. Such a shame.)

Very Amazing place to visit

First, I would like to thank the staff and especially Gary. We got delayed at the Statue of Liberty and there was no way we would make our tour time. After Gary called and stated that we could make another tour time. We rushed over there and was very glad we did. It was the most heart wrenching , amazing place that I have ever visited. For everyone that goes to New York I recommand that you take the time to visit the museum. You will not be disappointed!! My group had two kids ages 10 and 6 and two teenagers 13 and 12. And they loved every minute of it! So with that said: Make SURE you go!

A beautiful tribute

My husband is a firefighter in California. We wanted to honor all those who lost their lives on 9/11 by going to the museum. We were not disappointed. It brought back the feelings we all had that Sept. day-horror, devastation, fear and great great sorrow. We were able to see what the rescuers went through and how wonderfully loving and strong American's are. What those firefighters did was amazing. Ground zero is hallow ground and we are so glad we were able to pay our respects to all those who lost their lives on that day by experiencing what happened through the photo's and stories at the Ground Zero Workshop.

Profound Experience

I really enjoyed everything about the experience. Just a few items:

1 - The video played on the large screen is not formatted to fit the screen. So, what you end up with is poor image quality. Perhaps you could right-size the video or screen. A small screen should not be bad considering the intimate setting.

2 - There needs to be a larger sign/banner outside the front door.

3 - The soft spoken young man assisiting the group with the tour needs to speak up. When requested to speak up he appears shy and then resumes speaking softly.

Thank you for asking for my feedback.
