  • Excellent museum of unique photographs and salvaged artefacts with very informative audio tour giving detailed context to the exhibits. Additional background given by friendly and knowledgable tour guide. Sometimes moving, sometimes uplifting, this museum gives a unique perspective on one of the most significant human disasters of modern times, presented in a respectful, dignified and modest manor throughout. Two hours well spent.
  • Small, intimate museum. Amazing photos that capture that day and the resulting recovery along with artifacts that you can touch.
  • I don't quite have words to describe how moving my experience at the ground zero museum was. All I'm going to say is that it should be at the top of your list!
  • Dont let size fool you! This museum is truely incredible.We had the most amazing experience here at the Ground Zero Museum Workshop. We got to give our kids the opportunity to experience and get an understanding of the tragedy that affected the whole world. The tour is really accessible for both kids and adults. The visual representation, through the pictures and artifacts puts you at the location and helps you to understand the gravity of what Ground Zero was like. The stories and the way in which it is told is very clever. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and strongly encourage others to experience it for themselves. Definitely the best small museum we have visited.
  • So this photographer became the only one officially allowed on the site to document on images on film and I'm glad he did so in a tasteful way. This is basically a one-room gallery of the images with posted numbers so you can listen to the description of the time the image was taken. Told it was meant to be intimate as it provided a place for some mourning families to grieve. Glad I came to see it.....great photography....

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
