The Ground Zero Museum Workshop in Chelsea is a beautiful tribute to the victims and emergency workers. The pictures and artifacts personalize the events of 9/11 and its aftermath in a way that touches your heart and accomplishes its objective of "Don't ever forget" in a moving and lasting way.

A must if you are in New York, the plaza area with the fountains is a sight to see. Lots of people but still a feeling of space and peace. The museum was done in a way that is tasteful and not overbearing. I really sad place to visit but a reminder for all of us about the tragic event.... More

The Museum has become a very interesting and good place to remember all the victoms of the terror and how meaningsless these actions were. It is important that the younger people see and learn about it.

This is the new museum just opened this year. Most touching and thorough museum ever! So glad they made this for the mourning families have a place to go. Very overwhelming and emotional but a must see. Everyone remembers where they were on 911 and to actually be there and read and hear about it is quite overwhelming.

I thoroughly enjoyed visiting this museum. It was a somber experience. As you move from place to place, very few people speak louder than a whisper. It was a touching and moving experience. There were guides to answer questions and they were very knowledgeable. You must put it on your list to do when you're in New York City.

This was a wonderful intimate museum that was able to preserve, honor and share some of the experiences of the rescuers, the lost and the tragic day of 911. Even met the photographer who took all the photos. We went here before going to the Ground Zero Memorial, and it made the experience much more heartfelt.
