Ground Zero Museum Workshop Tour
Reviewed by: Lenna N, August 2014
This was an intimate, moving, experience from a participant's view. The artifacts, photos and spoken account was very moving. If you want to roam through a big, boring, impersonal museum, this is NOT for you. It IS however, for anyone who wants to see and hear a personal, first hand account of the event.

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.

An intimate museum that tells the story of the tragic events during and after 911. The photographs and auditory presentations of those involved in trying to rescue/recover the many people caught in this tragic attack on the citizens of our country are moving and informative. The photographer who was allowed access to record for future generations this heart breaking time was present. He wanted this museum to touch each person and was available to answer questions and to give small details of the nine months he spent capturing the faces of workers, families, and individuals. The museum is well done and will be a memory for our adult family members and for our young ones who were able to have the experience of touching, seeing, and hearing what so many people of New York were forced to deal with on 911 and many months that followed.

By far the best tour in the USA! This place is amazing. It is a lot more detailed and personal than the museum on the 9/11 sight. I could have spent all day here. It's just so well done and definitely worth your time. This is a must for anyone going to NY. Thank you for an unforgettable experience.

The objects in the museum were very well displayed. Although small, the museum was very well organized and the remote-control recording which went with every display was really great. Definitely worth the money to see it.
