Our family enjoyed this experience beyond words. It was inspiring, but did pull at our heart strings. Gary Suson, the founder of the museum, and the photographer who shares his emotions through his art was luckily there at the museum the day of our tour. He autographed his book for us to. The museum is very small, and it should stay that way. It's intimate and keeps you close to the items on display. I truely hope my children absorbed the importance of the day this museum showcases. Thank you Gary for allowing us an inside view of the pain, sadness and laughter many families of 9-11 experienced. The Eisenhauer family......San Antonio TX

Amazing museum
Sun, Aug 17, 08   2:00 PM sharrington Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
This museum was amazing and very touching it is something everyone must see to realize what happened on 9-11 and years after. Not only is it a reminder to never forget. It is a soft warm place to feel a since of healing. The emotion in each picture definately tell a story and every piece in this museum is shown respectfully. It was especially good for my children to be able to understand. I have already told many of my family and friends about this museum and that it is a must see.

Excellent way to experience this national tragedy

We've all seen the footage a thousand times of the horrific events of that day, but this museum gives unique insight into the lives that were directly affected that day--the aftermath, what it all means in a very personalized way--very respectfully presented. My father and I were very impressed, notably the tour guide did an excellent job--teacher from Nebraska--Jackie was her name?

Will never forget this visit.

I am still amazed by the ability of Gary Souson to capture one of our country's most terrifying moments in such an honest yet respectful manner. The guides were excellent and knowledgeable. A very emotional and moving experience.

Although this museum was small, it's impact was huge! It is one of the best museums I have been to! It was very emotional and powerful. The images and artifacts were amazing. It was a great experience in fully understanding that horrible day and remembering those who lost their lives and those who are remembered as heroes.

Highly recommended, best museum I've been to!
Mon, Aug 4, 08   2:00 PM mstapp Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
This museum was absolutely the best museum I have ever been to. I would highly recommend anyone going to New York to see this place. We had our eight year old daughter with us and she really enjoyed it too. She especially liked learning about the search and rescue dogs. We also got to meet the photographer who was at ground zero, and he explained alot of his photographs and artifacts to us. That was an unexpected surprise.

Touching and intimate.
Thu, Jul 31, 08   3:00 PM lisamomx4 Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We were very moved and thankful to have the opportunity to see this beautiful tribute inspiring us to never forget the events, people and hero's of 9-11. Words can not clearly describe the impact this experience leaves you with. There is so much to see in such a small area....but the message is larger than life. I'm glad my children were able to see, touch and hear what transpired during the rescue and recovery effort following the worst American tragedy. God Bless all involved in this project and all the victims and survivors still coping with daily.

I bought the tickets by mail. I was very dissapointed when I arrive to the museum and find out that I paid twice more than the normal rate. I didn´t argue there because the environment of the museum makes you feel very touched, but the point is that prices shall be the same everywhere.

By the other hand, I don´t know what characteristics a place must have to be named "Museum" but I think this is just an exhibition of pictures and objects compiled by one brave man.

Very Amazing place to visit
Mon, Jul 28, 08   2:00 PM 19kristina76 Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
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!

Very moving

You will see a collection of photographs from Ground Zero recovery efforts as well as artifacts from the scene. There are about 100 different displays, which are either a photo or a collection of artifacts. Each display has its own story that you can listen to on a set of headphones provided by the museum. All proceeds go to 9-11 charities. Everything is very tastefully and respectfully presented, and this should be the number one stop on everyone's list of places to go in NYC!!!

They do have a gift shop where you can purchase a book with all the photographs (plus many many more photos that are not part of the display) and the stories behind them. Also they have poster and postcard size reprints of some of the individual photos. Again, proceeds go to 9-11 charities.

If you're still not sure you want to go, did I mention the free chocolates??

Brings one closer to what happened.
Sun, Jul 27, 08   2:00 PM johnokeefe Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
This is something i would recommend to anyone in New York or who visit’s New York. I also recommend seeing this before going to ground zero. I thought this museum/workshop was done very well and handled with sensitivity for family members of victims as well as people who can get emotional. I think about September 11th, 2001 everyday and I learn more over time, I’ve wanted to get to New York for 7 years and I finally did it this year. Looking forward to returning Thank you,

Extremely interesting, with lots of emotions
Sun, Jul 27, 08   12:00 PM AUFFRET Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
We very much enjoyed the Ground Zero Museum Workshop. It was a very enriching experience and we recommend it to those who want to learn about what happened on 9/11. Requiem, the book of Gary Suson, is really worth buying. Sometimes, the emotions that come out of the book are even stronger than the ones you experience at the Museum itself. One little downside : The Museum is extremely small and people should be warned in advance of what to expect : a video and explanations about real life events. We had our two small children with us (3 years and 15 months). Despite the fact that they did behave very well given their young age, the requested silence and the small room in which the Museum is set up ( a living room basically), one woman looked at my 15 months daughter who was crawling on the floor without no sympathy whatsoever as though we were disturbing her in her review of the Museum. Very disappointing....

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 is one everyone visiting NY should experience. It reminded us of the good that is found in so many 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.
