Ground Zero Museum Workshop Tour
Please note: This museum is the Ground Zero Museum Workshop and NOT the National 9/11 Memorial Museum
- Fully narrated tour
- Choice of several departures throughout the day
- All entrance fees included
The only all-access, sanctioned photographer at Ground Zero, Suson's one-of-a-kind, 3-D photo installations place viewers into the "hole" at Ground Zero. Visitors are also allowed the rare opportunity to pick up and hold World Trade Center steel and window glass. The Non-Profit Museum, a must-see before visiting Ground Zero, also benefits numerous 9/11 and Fire Department-related charities and is endorsed by many noted firefighters and 9/11 families. Tours are limited to just 25 people, and include a powerful 15-minute video.
The Ground Zero Museum is about 5-minutes from Ground Zero via the "E" train. Daily tours last about 90 minutes and include the intimate stories behind 100 images and remnants. This is a "don't-miss" museum that touches the heart of young and old alike. No graphic or morbid images are displayed and the museum is known for its sensitivity to a very tough subject matter. Suitable for children.

Gosh, what can I say. Take some tissues with you. We were fortunate enough to meet Gary who was the only photographer given access to take the official photographs. There are numerous photos and items to look at and you can take photos of all the exhibits bar one and the reason for this will become obvious to you once you are there. The Museum is located in the Meat Packing District and it is on the 2nd floor of a building so it is not an obvious looking museum. It is very different from the 911 Museum so it is well worth doing both of them. The tour guides are lovely too and make you feel very welcome. You are also allowed to touch some of the exhibits and a lot of the money goes to the charity to support the families of the victims.

Loved this tour. Is hard to find as no signage, if you go take extra time to locate the workshop.Highly recommend to do this tour first before 911 memorial and museum viewing. Very initimate small museum but definitely worth going to.
