“Intimate setting with interesting artifacts and a wealth if information if your curious about all aspects of ground zero recover”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

It's a small 2nd floor studio apartment turned into a shrine of 9/11 photos and artifacts. If you use the handheld tourmate for all the items, it can easily take up the two hour time frame. You can leave earlier though. Do not arrive earlier than your ticket time. They won't let you in. We were there five minutes before our tour and we had to wait outside. I would only recommend this museum for somebody who is really interested in the recovery efforts that followed 9/11.

“Touching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

This was very well done for a sad turning point in the worlds history. The workshop was enlightning and tastefully done and just a short distance to the memorial. The memorial was a must see to ensure we do not forget.

“Good things come in small packages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Very moving experience! Hard to believe such a small facility could hold so much information. Reported to be 1000 square feet, seemed smaller. Excellent presentations with superior narratives at each different exhibit. Truly amazing pieces ans photos from Ground Zero. You have to go before you go to the 911 Memorial. Helps bring it all together.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

This museum is on the second floor of a building where photographer Gary Susson took a photo of one of the towers collapsing on that fateful morning sept 11th. It houses a small museum of his photographs and artefacts from the ground zero site. It is remarkably poignant and tells the story of the aftermath of 9/11 in a most remarkable way. Two videos are shown which give background to the stories explained on the walls, we were given headsets to listen to explanations of the exhibits which made this very personal. At the moment there is no museum at the ground zero site so I would definitely recommend a visit here before you visit the 9/11 memorial site. It is in the meat packing district near the high line park (which was great to walk home on). This is a sensitive and very worthwhile museum to visit.
