Thoroughly enjoyed the Talk and the way the Museum is laid out. It gives plenty of time to stop and reflect on every aspect. You wander around taking the sheer scale of the atrocity in...lots of moving features like the display cabinet with personal possessions where rightly you are not allowed to take photos, instead offered an adjoining area to...

I must say I found the whole experience overwhelming but for me and I guess so many others it offers some closure on what happened after September 11 to the site and it puts faces on the lives lost. Take tissues!

I lived in NYC for many years and met Gary Marlon Suson a few times during my time there. He had always encouraged me to visit his museum, and I finally did this past weekend. It far, far exceeded my expectations! The museum is small, but full of incredible photos and artifacts from 9/11 and the recovery efforts. Gary Suson... More

Of course the memories are sad, but they are part of our generation. A tribute so well so neat so touching.

Well worth the visit to this small museum. You have to take a train to it from the 911 Memorial Site. Hands on artifacts and helpful staff. The photos are amazing and unique because this is the only photographer allowed inside and during the recovery period.

We stood in queues for over an hour and a half after buying tickets for a specified time. While we were in line, we said this is worse than Disney. As soon as you walk in, you see that Disney is one of the major contributors to this pantheon to American Hubris. What a horrible experience. The reflecting pools are... More

Ground Zero Museum Workshop would literally take the tear from a stone, (it’s an old saying). To see the twisted metal, the damaged helmets the wallet with someones I.D, the man’s wedding ring and the area where the towers formally stood with each persons name who lost there lives inscribed on the surrounding water area. It truly is heartbreaking especially... More

Very moving. Get there early in the morning to avoid the queues. The way the museum is laid out is in very good taste. Even the security personnel seem more friendly and engaging than at other places in NYC. 10 out of 10

I got the chance to visit the 9/11 Memorial site, on my visit to NYC in December 2013. It's roughly 3 minute walk from wall street, I made this one of my visits on the return journey from liberty island. Upon arrival, you're greeting by a theme park style queue. up and down little walk ways until you get to... More
