  • 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.
  • 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....
  • Oh boy, so many tears in that little place, so full of emotions and real people. Thank you for the experience, i'll never forget it
  • The main reason behind my 2 stars is the fact that the "museum" is actually more like a studio to honor the photographer. I questioned his works and some information I found out about him on the internet by simply googling his name to find more of his photography. I did post the information to the "museums" twitter page and that started a chain reaction of Mr. Suson making up a bogus statement about me having to be escorted out of his "museum" for harassing him and 9/11 victims family members. I visited the "museum" on July 3rd, he made these accusations on July 5th when I had already left NYC. The art in his photography is touching, and the artifacts he has on display are too. However, I will not support someone that is willing to make up such things about individuals for just questioning statements about them. I never once trashed 9/11 victims, or their family members, or first responders.
