  • Very small museum in an apartment but so well done. Moving, especially when you get to know Gary, the photographer. I recommend it.

  • This was the most touching display of all that I saw in New York. The ground zero museum is a MUST SEE if you visit New York! Thank goodness they provide tissue your going to need them.
  • A moving tribute to some of the personal costs of 9/11, this museum is great. Gary and his team are knowledgeable and respectful. Thanks for such an experience.
  • A phenomenal collection of photos and artifacts from the Ground Zero excavation after 9/11. Gary Marlon Suson (professional photographer for the 9 month excavation process) has contributed both his exceptional photographic skill and ability to humanise the storytelling process. He has produced an irreplaceable exhibition and superb audioguide.
  • Gary, the place you have created for the world to see is unbelievable! I shed many tears while in your Musuem, it’s beautiful to see what you have done for the victims of 9/11. They will never be forgotten and your images will forever be in my mind. I am glad to say I meet you personally, your a humble kind hearted man that deserves every word in this review. I highly recommend anyone coming to the NYC to get down to this place and experience it! Your mind will be blown, a 5 star recommendation is not enough. Make sure you view this place before the memorial as well, it puts the memorial in much better perspective. Cheers, Louise from Sydney, Australia.
  • Absolutely beautiful! I would allow 3-4 hours to walk through the Museum. Easy 5+ hour Day just at WTC.
