279 Reviews

  • Location: New York City, New York
  • Duration: 2 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 2296GUIDED
Visit the Ground Zero Museum Workshop for an intimate and emotional introduction to what you will see at the nearby September 11 Memorial Museum. The non-graphic imagery, 100 audio clips, and Ground Zero artifacts housed in this non-profit museum exhibit the heroic efforts of the firefighters on that fateful day in 2001. Winner of Trip Advisor’s “Top 25 Museums in the USA” award, this is the only place you can actually hold Ground Zero artifacts, a chilling reminder for adults and a chance for young children to learn about a significant moment in history.

Please note: This museum is the Ground Zero Museum Workshop and NOT the National 9/11 Memorial Museum

Highlights

  • Fully narrated tour
  • Choice of several departures throughout the day
  • All entrance fees included
The Ground Zero Museum Workshop in the Meat-Packing District on West 14th Street features stunning images, rare video and remnants from the Ground Zero Recovery Period, all packed into an intimate and emotional space. On display are 100 of Gary Marlon Suson's most well-known images, including the charred Genesis 11: Tower of Babylon Bible Page found in the WTC rubble, the Frozen Clock stuck at 10:02am, marking the collapse of the South Tower and several FDNY Honor Guard images. The actual clock itself is also on display in the museum.

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.

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.
