Very touching

Thank you for putting together such a touching memorial of this terrible attack. I signed up via the internet (found out about it via web surfing). I took my 14yr old nephew. We were both thankful for the opportunity to learn more of the stories of this time. Although it is not a typical 'feel-good' type of experience...it is one everyone visiting NY should experience. It reminded us of the good that is found in so many others...to be grateful for every breath that we take...every day is a gift from above. My nephew and I learned alot from this visit; we will certainly encourage others to visit. Thank you for your touching tribute. May God bless you for your efforts, and all the families of those lost that day.

This small museum was somewhat difficult to find, small, and a bit cramped. All that said, this was the most unbelievable thing we did in NYC. This was our first trip, and very little can top seeing the Statue of Liberty for the first time, but this museum did it. We bought a few posters from the museum, and when we unwrapped when we returned home, my wife and I could still barely talk about them without getting choked up. This was a life-changing two hours and nothing we saw topped it - period.

WOW!!!! TRULY AMAZING!!!!!!!!

THIS MUSEUM IS A TRUE TRIBUTE TO THOSE WHO PERISHED ON 9/11. IT IS SO HARD TO FIND THIS SORT OF DETAIL AND INSIGHT ANYWHERE. THE MUSEUM IS IN A VERY INTIMATE, QUIET SETTING AND IT IS IN THIS SETTING THAT YOU CAN REFLECT ON THE EVENTS OF 9/11. WE BROUGHT OUR CHILDREN, AGES 8 AND 11, BECAUSE WE WANTED THEM TO GET SOME IDEA OF THE TRAGEDY OF THAT FATEFUL DAY AS THEY WERE BOTH SO YOUNG WHEN THE ACTUAL TRAGEDY OCCURED. THERE IS NO BETTER WAY THAN THIS MUSEUM FOR THAT PURPOSE. THERE IS NO OTHER PLACE IN NEW YORK THAT YOU WILL FIND ACTUAL PIECES OF THE GLASS AND STEEL FROM THE TWIN TOWERS AND ACTUALLY GET TO TOUCH SOME OF THE GLASS. EACH PHOTOGRAPH IN THE MUSEUM HAS A STORY BEHIND IT THAT YOU GET TO LISTEN TO. ON MOST DAYS, THE PHOTOGRAPHER THAT TOOK THE PHOTOS IS THERE, SO YOU CAN ALSO TALK TO HIM. IT WAS A TRULY AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!! DO NOT MISS IT!!!

As a native New Yorker, there was no better understanding of exactly what happened at ground zero than to attend this museum. Please take the time out of your trip to New York to visit. You will not regret it.

Definitely worthwhile, not for young children
Mon, Jul 14, 08   2:00 PM CherylRick Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The workshop is worth doing. It was our first trip to NY since the attacks and it felt like we were finally paying our respects to all those who were lost. The pictures and stories were amazing. We were there for a good two hours and only left because the next tour was getting ready to come in. It's a one room museum/workshop...a loft, with lots to see and stories to hear (audio tour). A VERY emotional experience. Do something light and fun after. I don't recommend this for young children (probably 12 and up). There was a toddler at our tour and she was fussy. She made it difficult to hear and was frustrating the other visitors. Poor little thing just didn't understand and had a hard time being quiet and still.

This museum workshop topped our trip to the city. An absolute treasure and timepiece is within this museum. Very easy to find and very friendly tour guide. Also, had the opportunity to meet Gary Suson. He is an amazing person. September 11 is a tragic event that is a part of our history. Gary was able to capture this like no other and created something spectacular for all of us to see. He allowed this part of history to never be forgotten. Definately take the time to visit, it is worth every penny and moment.

The BEST thing we did in New York!

I found the Ground Zero Museum and Workshop Tour on the internet. To be honest, before we went, I wasn't sure it was worth the price. There are other Ground Zero "things" to do in NYC. But, I would pay 10X the price to attend again. It is a very intimate setting, a small studio-type apartment. There was a young gentleman who is training to be a NYC firefighter as our tour guide (really more of a host). He gave a short history of the museum and how it came to be, showed a couple of videos, maybe 10-15 minutes and then we were given headsets to go at our own pace by typing in a number next to pictures and artifacts. We could ask him questions about any of the pictures there. It was very emotionally moving to see and touch some of the actual pieces of the WTC, to hear the stories behind such pieces. The museum does NOT show the planes hitting the WTC, it focuses on the recovery. Very uplifting experience. As you walk in, you are instantly taken back to 9/11, raw emotions that have been surpressed for years. You see the faces and hear the stories of families directly impacted. Very peaceful, uplifting, rewarding experience. The best 2 hours we spent in New York!

Wonderful Museum!

Our trip to NYC was very eventful but our favorite activity of all was our trip to Ground Zero Museum Workshop. Being able to hear the stories behind the photographs and having hands-on access to the artifacts made our visit even more special. I have never had a more moving experience. Our family will visit again.

I was humbled by the exhibits.
Tue, Jul 1, 08   1:00 PM lpreston Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The experience I had at the Ground Zero Museum is very difficult to put into words. I was humbled by the stories and exhibits I viewed. The timed entry and limited number entry into the museum made for a very intimate atmosphere. Mr. Suson was in the facility the day we completed our tour and took the time to talk with our group. He was very friendly and compassionate. I have already recommended this museum to many and will continue to recommend it to others. Thank you for such and amazing experience.

Words cannot describe how incredible/memorable

Words cannot describe how incredible/memorable of an experience it was. The guides were great. Convenient numeric audio documentary w/ 2 videos to see. Can peruse items and photos at your own pace. Allow for 2-3 hours. MUST-SEE if going to NY.
