Really enjoyed this museum, very hands on and couldn't believe the artefacts they had in there that we could actually touch. The highlight was meeting the photographer Gary himself, he shook my hand asked me questions and was just genuinely a lovely guy, definitely worth a visit and something to remember forever

It might be small, but this museum is mighty. Each picture is filled with so much emotion that it has a huge impact on you. The museum is in the second floor of a building which is the photographer's former photography space. It seemed like an odd spot for a museum, but actually, it fits the subject perfectly. It feels...

A 'must do' if visiting New York. Really glad we made it to the Ground Zero Museum Workshop. The experience provides a far more in depth understanding of the horrors faced by New Yorkers on that horrible day than we could ever gather from the MSM here in the UK. All this is possible thanks to the amazing work of... More

This exhibit was very well put together. What is very cool about the place is that you wear headphones and go at your own pace to see each artifact one by one. There are a couple hundred artifacts that are all original pieces of history. The gentleman, Gary Marlon Suson, that put it all together is a great person. He... More

We had such a great and emotional day at the Ground Zero Museum. We heard many real life stories from those whose involved with search and recovery of Ground Zero. We spent two and half hours learning about this tragic event in our history. Thank you Gary for the amazing photography and capturing these stories.

Like so many place of this ilk, this is where you can purchase the ultimate piece of memorabilia to say that you've been there. But the selection is top notch ... it's worth a stop

We went with 3 adults and 3 children and everyone was engaged throughout the entire time at the museum. Incredible photos and great narration. This was definitely a moving experience and really helped my children understand what happened on 9/11 and through the recovery process. Great job sharing the information!

We said we would never forget. My husband served in Iraq because of this tragedy. 3 of our 4 remember this day- very specifically. Our daughter born 2002, she has no idea the magnitude- being taught even in a private school how to think liberally- show your children - but a $1 rubber bracelet and keep your audio guide in...

Very emotional visit. Was glad I went but was hard to deal with memories. Would not have missed it. It was the first time I had been to Manhattan for site seeing since prior to 911.
