We are a family of 4 (mom, dad, 18 yr old son and 16 yr old daughter) who lost no one on 9/11, but we all wanted to visit the site, and felt that the workshop could help us appreciate what this tragedy truly meant to the city and its people. It consists of one room, you watch a couple of videos giving you some background info as well as clips of news footage and interviews, then the excellent "guide" explains that you can handle and photograph virtually everything you see, as well as listen to an audio guide which is narrated by the official photographer (the only man allowed to take photos, and unsalaried ) The staff are prepared for tears as well as any questions you might have. I would recommend this to everyone - you must go. Some of the stories will move you to tears, artefacts will send a shiver down your spine - there is a clock that stopped the very second the first plane hit - but you will come out feeling uplifted in a way I can't put into words. Truly the best little museum in New York.
