What You Can Expect

Ground Zero Museum Workshop Tour

Touch and Hold Glass from the World Trade Center on the Ground Zero Museum Workshop Tour

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.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

Probably not located where you might expect. You do wonder if it might feel a little detached from ground zero before admission. But once inside a very knowledgable guide takes control and takes you through an emotional and informative journey of the single most world changing even in our lives. Unbelievable artefacts on display, and definitely worth doing prior to visiting the memorial itself.
