A MUST for ANYONE in NYC

Very moving, respectful tribute to 9/11. The memories, the moments, the thoughts, the people, encompasses all aspects of that fateful day and the many days that followed. The curators were so kind, and the owner/photographer mingled with us at the end of the tour. He also took time to take photos with our group which ranged in ages of 40 to 10. All museum content was appropriate for all. I would put this museum at the top of your to do list in New York City. God's Blessings,

Your 4 Texas Ladies!

personal, deeply moving tribute to 9-11 families

I would highly recommend this tour for individuals who want to comprehend the events of Sept 11th and their aftermath through the lens of the individuals and families who were among those most immediately affected by this terrible tragedy. The museum is really a small room with dozens of artifacts and pictures assembled to tell multiple stories of the people who died on that day as well as the firefighters and rescue workers tasked with the grim and solemn responsibility to recover bodies and dismantle the site. Each story and picture is unique in its own way; the cumulative effect puts a very human face on the devastation wrought by this inconceivable act of violence. The stories of these people are told by the photographer, Gary Susson, with great care, respect, and love though pictures and spoken words. Viewing the pictures and hearing stories was my own act of remembrance that had more personal value than had I merely visited the Ground Zero site.

This museum takes you back to the recovery of Ground Zero as if you are there. It is a poignant reminder of what heroes those men and women were.

Amazing!

We are from Kansas and when our tour bus dropped us off at the actual Ground Zero site, we were suprised. At this time there wasn't anything to see or no where to basically pay our respects. We spoke to our hotel about that and they suggested we go to the Ground Zero Museum workshop. We had them immediately call and we scheduled our reservation. My husband and I, along with my parents and our 2 kids (age 6 and 9) made our way down to the museum in the meat packing district. We were a bit alarmed where we ended up and then to find it was a 1 room facility at first we thought we had been took. But 2+ hours later, I had to be pulled from the place. The interactive set up is nothing short of amazing. Both of my kids spent a lot of time going through all the different things we could listen to. It held their attention for the entire 2 hours. We had the last slot of the day so we were told we could stay as long as we liked. I found it all extremely moving. This isn't a museum describing what led up to that awful day, but a memorial to the people that worked tirelessly for 6 months after 09/11 and the people that perished that horrible day! The workers painstakingly trying to find the remains in the most respectful way they could. Amazing is how all 6 of us described it. I laughed, I cried and I was in held in AW for the entire time. I would suggest this wonderful place to anyone who can remember that fateful day in September 2001! It is a wonderful tribute to all that died and all that worked the site after the event. Gary, the photographer/artist happened to be there the day we visited (which happened to be Memorial Day 2008) and he was an amazingly genuine person. He took the time to speak to both of my kids. He didn't hover over them and worry about what they might do....he truly offered his words of help and support. We strongly suggest this place when you plan your New York tours. It is off the beaten path, but it will be the most memorable 2 hours of your trip!

I am a firefighter and I feel this display of photos, artifacts and stories was done in a very tasteful and heartfelt manner. It touched my heart. It keeps those who lost their lives on that horrible day ... very much alive. Awesome collection.

my wife and i took our 8 yr old son and 5 yr old son. tastefully done so that my boys could be there, learn, and not have nightmares. GREAT job, Suson. on the negative side, we did have our vehicle towed b/c we parked in an area that wasn't clearly marked.

A must do..........

I think this is something that everyone should do and see. We watched on television but to actually go to the museum and hear the stories, touch remnants from the towers, etc just really helps you to understand the gravity of what happened on 9/11. I recommend it to everyone and pray we "Never Forget".

Definitely worth a visit

Very well done and tasteful. The small intimate setting was ideal. One thing I will note (without opinion) is that the museum has a significant religious tone to it. Heavier on the side of Chrisitanity.

Such a sad moment in US history was showed and explained with respect and realism to the victims.

I believe that this could be increase since I am sure there are lots of photograpic material to show.

The ground zero museum is a fantastic way to get a deeper understanding of life at Ground Zero during the clean up. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. The museum is quite amazing and the experience was tremendously moving.

Must Do in NY

My wife and i spent a couple weeks on holiday in the US. That included just a couple days in New York. There are so many things to see and do in this great city, and visiting

the Ground Zero Museum Workshop is one of them. It was an excellent experience and highly recommended. Its a great way to pay your respects to those who died and those who survived the 9/11 tragedy.

There are some amazing images on display not too mention artifacts and remains that you could see and touch.

A must do for anyone visiting NY.

I found out about this workshop by searching the internet. I'm from Vancouver BC and remember waking up September 11th after most of the events had already taken place (due to the time zone and my sleeping in). It was extremely emotional to see the footage and actual artifacts from that day. I thought it was very tastefully put together and they definitely keep the best interests of the families effected at heart. I have already recommended the workshop to a friend travelling to New York in August.
