  • This is an interesting and non-confrontational way to view relics of 9/11. The display and documentary is based on the work of Gary Suson, the official Ground Zero photographer. I was sceptical, when ...  more »
  • Great exhibits, touching stories. This workshop is not part of the 9/11 Museum and is therefore not located nearby, but in the Meatpacking District - in an apartment converted into a museum. Exhibits from Ground Zero and photographs - shot by the only photographer allowed to enter Ground Zero in the weeks and months after 9/11 - are very dignified and yet no less oppressive. A film was played at the beginning of the workshop. Afterwards you could go through the exhibition with audio guide. Some exhibits could even be taken into their hands.

  • 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.
