  • When I visited the Museum the truth I figured that I was going to impact both emotionally, there were moments in which I wanted to cry just imagine everything we experienced that so-fateful day, I lasted more than 3 hours there; viewing photos, watching them remains of them buildings, them things found and listening to the recordings of that day. If they go to New York may not to pass up the opportunity to visit a place that is as memorable as this, never forget!

  • We went with 3 adults and 3 kids. All of us were so moved. This is a must see!! The photographs, stories, and artifacts were so evocative. We lucked out and had the museum's creator, Gary Marlon Suson...  more »

  • 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....
  • 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.
  • We were looking forward to this and prepurchased tickets with Go pass, we planned to go Saturday, googled the opening hours noted 11 - 5pm, go pass info and the organisations website indicated that last tour was at 1pm, which was fine as we were happy to do the audio tour. We planned our day with that in mind, arrived at 3pm, where we happened to be stuck at the front door with another family trying to visit the museum with their daughter. We both rang the bell for awhile with no answer (waited about 10 minutes) ended up having to call the museum where we were advised they had closed at 2. Unfortunately this day was the last day that we could make the workshop, as Sunday had limited opening hours and we had further things booked and then fly out the following day, money and time wasted - when an update and clarity to organisations website / google info would have solved this issue Recommend changing/updating google info/website, updating website to clearly indicate opening hours and some sort of signage to the door
  • Tasteful, intimate and so moving. Best memorial in NYC....must see
