Experience the Stunning Images of Official Ground Zero Photographer Gary Marlon Suson. "Rare Photos" (New York Times) are displayed, some in lifelike 3D installations, as well as artifacts & rare video.

There was so much to see in this museum. Be sure and give yourself time to see everything. We didn't think the short feature film was worth the wait but all else was interesting.

A great museum to pay your respects to those lost in such tragic events and too celebrate the lives of those taken from us.

This museum is outstanding. My friends and I spent three hours in awe of the personal stories, artifacts, news casts, and artwork. Had to hold back tears several times. This is a wonderful, professional, thoughtful museum which captures our history.

This is a must-see, must-do, must-experience. I attended this prior to going to the 9/11 memorial... and am so grateful that I did. Don't let the size of this museum / workshop fool you -- it is a profoundly moving and emotional experience through the eyes of photographer / hero Marlon Suson. Sheila was an exceptional guide / docent... who... More

This museum is designed to help you understand the recovery efforts made after the 9/11 attacks. It is very moving. The photographs are extremely moving and the museum is self paced. We had young children, teens and adults. Everyone in our party really enjoyed the museum!

My family visited the GZWM and it was well worth it. It is called a workshop because you can actually pick up and touch many of the artifacts recovered from the 9/11 site. It is centered around the recovery efforts of the FDNY as captured through the pictures of Gary Suson. As you walk around the small museum you are... More

Owned by the photographer who had exclusive access to ground zero and was able to walk away with bunches of "mementos" from the site. Nothing new if you have visited the Museum & Memorial. Their pieces are much more impressive and they have lots more. The Workshop was a disappointment after leaving it and going directly to the Museum.

Very emotional museum to see and hold some of the artefacts from the recovery following 9/11 and listen to tales. Teenager children appreciated this type of history museum with a difference
