Had been to NY before but hadn't managed to get to do this tour. One of the best tours to do in NY, done in a very tasteful way. Added bonus-on day we were there Gary Suson (the photographer who opened the museum/took all the photos) was at the museum. A definite must do tour
This is an AWESOME experience. I was very moved by all the photos and artifacts from ground zero. We shall never forget those that lost their lives and the heroism of those that were part of the recovery. God Bless from Texas.
How can one say that visting a Ground Zero Museum is the best experience of visting New York - but it truly was. It shoves aside any pretense or fluff to get right to the heart of the matter - a city and a fire department deeply tramatized yet victorious over those who would attack us on our own soil. Thank you to Mr S and the girls who work there.
It maybe small but every picture told a thousand stories. This was an amazing museum carefully thought about. It was extremely sad but also very positive. It proved that no matter what there are people willing to risk their lives to save others. The Photographer took some amazing photos to tell the story. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
Really, really worth seeing, well organised and with great feeling and understanding
Absolutely Fantastic, the images are very moving, don't be put off by the fact it is very small, each image has an audio description via the headphones provided, we did this just before a World Trade Centre Walking Tour and felt this was the right way to do it.
This was a very moving experience. The photography amazing considering the circumstances in which the images were taken. A fitting memorial for all those who lost their lives. Thanks to all who made this possible
The museum itself is not much bigger than an average living room. My initial thoughts were that the museum wasnt up to much - How wrong i was! The tour begins with 2 videos which tap into the pure emoton of the events and aftermath of what happend on September the 11th. The Museum itself consists of items from ground zero and images taken by the only Photographer allowed into ground zero to document the recovery of the victims of the attack. Each item has its own story which is told by the photographer through individual digital headsets. This means you can go through the exibits at your own pace, id personally put 2 hours aside to get through all the pictures and artifacts. The museum is very respectful and tasteful and shows no moving images of the planes entering the buildings or the collapse of the towers. The Museum prides itself on providing a relaxed and thought provoking atmosphere that honours the dead and the heroic actions of the New York Fire and Police department. I am so glad i visited this Museum and would 100% recommend it to anyone visiting NYC. My advice would be to set off in plenty of time and make sure you get to the museum on time. It provides a very respectful and heartwrenching account of the events of that world changing day.
This worksop is fantastic, so moving. We visited here in the morning and then went on to Ground Zero tour later the same day, which really worked as some of the sights and info from here are so relavant when you get to the actual site.
The workshop was a very moving experience, it was brilliant what the organisers are doing to help those families of the 9/11 victims. Even though we live thousands of miles away it really touched us as I think it did everyone. The workshop was packed full of photos, information and objects from the Ground zero site, you will probably never experience anything like it, if you go NY you must do this workshop tour!
Very very emotional, beautifully done, will be back in Nov '10 2 C again. Bring more friends. Thank You, for all the hard work and dedication that went into this project.
What can I say about this tour it was so emotional! We felt so humble and privelaged to be able to have seen and touch certain items that was retrieved from the massacre! Very thorough and detailed experience everyone should go and see how the site has got where it is now 9 years later!
This is a MUST DO!!! It is a bit out of the way, but it is so worth it. Very good value. Very moving. I have to thank everyone involed in every aspect of this museum, as it is truly a gem. Don't miss it.
A must go for anyone who has been touched by the 9/11 disaster. Very tastefully done, with a lot of information (be prepared - take a hanky). Would not have missed it for the world.
Whatever you do on your visit to New York, this has to be a MUST. Emotional and well presented. There will never be a more fitting tribute than this.
This workshop is not in the heart of Times Square, but in the meat packing district. . . a little trickier to find. That said, it was a great place to visit and learn so much about the event that will forever be part of our lives in this country. Took our three kids and they all were very glad we walked the 35 blocks to get there!
An absolutely amazing experience... Thumbs up to the 2 lovely girls that take the tour. Very professionally and compassionately done. One of my highlights of NY!!!! We also had a special visit from the photographer Gary Suson who signed our book we brought. Highly recommended!!!!!
Wonderful little museum offering a unique insight into the afermath of 911 through photos and commentary. Suitable for all ages, nothing too graphic and very moving, highly recommended
I thought it was one of the best museums I have experienced. I have been all over the world and have not been as emotional except in Ann Frank's museum and Dachau.
Very moving and emotional tour. Well worth a visit.
