Ground Zero Museum Workshop reviews
I stumbled upon this place while perusing a map of Chelsea. What a gem! Very small museum, with plenty of seating for an exhausted tourist. See other reviews for the interesting mission statement..... more »
I will always remember 9/11 like it was yesterday. Visiting the Ground Zero Museum was extremely moving. I wish we had more time to spend here to really take it all in. more »
I took this tour back in May. I’ve been meaning to write a review because it was so amazing. It was such an emotional and memorable experience. You will not be disappointed. There were items there that will just blow your mind away. You are allowed to have a connection with all the artifacts and also allowed to hold some, including a piece of plane that was involved in the World Trade Center. Thank you to the Firefighter who captured all these memories, allowing people to have an experience such as the one I did.
We enjoyed visiting this museum very much. It’s only one room but it’s full of photos and artefacts from the aftermath of 9/11. Each one is numbered and you are given an audio guide so you just punch in the corresponding number to hear the photographer himself tell you about it. Seating is provided so you can listen in comfort. Allow 90 mins to hear all 100 recordings. Start with 101 which is the introduction then continue with 1, 2, 3 etc.
