  • Wonderful to learn the stories, feel the emotions of the recovery workers and pay tribute to all those that lost their lives on the most impactful day in history! Gary was kind enough to open the museum on a day off. His passion for documenting 911 history through pictures/audio then sharing it with the world is priceless. My three children were engaged and moved for the entire tour. Thank you Gary for your kindness! Kristina
  • This place is small and tucked out of sight on the second floor of a multi-use building. But if you are on a trip to NYC with young kids, and have been marching thru gigantic museums you will appreciate this place. It is a small space filled with photos and artifacts of the 9/11 clean up and recovery effort. It is moving and informative, but spares us the horrors of the actual event. The audio tour is very interesting and easy for adults and kids alike.
