I was a little disappointed with the memorial after lining up for nearly 2 hours, the memorial itself was very impressive, it should receive a massive lift once the museum opens in May, just a shame the staff could process the people lining up more efficiently. Also, get a ticket online before you go, otherwise you'll find yourself walking all... More

Wonderful sight and well done memorial, definitely worth viewing and noting one of the most important recent events in the cities history.

The only thing I particularly disliked, was the tour guide was wearing a tee-shirt that was made to look a little like a little fire fighters uniform, it seems to be in bad taste. Its difficult to rate on tripadvisor sometimes, this attraction is definitely a 9 out of ten, but the tour guide's "uniform" made it easier to round... More

Not a lot of advertising, and it is a little hard to find, but WELL worth the trip. Intimate space telling the story of the ground zero recovery effort from the perspective of the photographer who was there. Very moving and well done. I had the good fortune to meet Gary and discuss some of the photos that meant the... More

In my opinion it would be helpful to have the ticket office on site and not 5 blocks away!! People working in the area could also have been more tolerant of tourists.

An informative, yet moving exhibition full of pictures and items salvaged from the site, that gives visitors an intimate insight into the tragic event. I'd recommend this to anyone who remembers 9/11 and for those who were too young to remember it. Sincerely hope it doesn't suffer when the official museum (actually at Ground zero) opens in May 2014.

Liked the personal touch of this shop as well as the connection to charity. Prices were also competitive.

I think a lot of people have mixed up this museum workshop with the ground zero tour. They are different!! This is a two-hour audio guide tour. Check out their website for information before making false reviews! This small museum displays photos taken by the photographer Gary Suson and some artifacts collected during recovery that you can actually touch. (except... More

The museum is not the typical experience you would expect. It is a small space that thoroughly shares every moment that the victims and first responders experienced in a casual setting. Visitors are able to absorb the story behind artifacts and moving photographic images in their own personal way. I don't believe you could see this display through any other... More
