Owner description: Ground Zero Museum Workshop: Images & Artifacts from the 9/11 Recovery, in the Meatpacking District near Chelsea Market and the High Line Park. A 5-Star Rated Tour. Want to feel what it was like to be with FDNY Firefighters on the front lines after the 9/11 attacks? Want to educate your kids about this tough subject in a gentle and non-threatening way? Experience the Stunning Images of Official Ground Zero Photographer Gary Marlon Suson. "Rare Photos" (New York Times) are displayed, some in lifelike 3D installations, as well as artifacts & rare video. Rated in Trip Advisor's "Top 25 Museums in the USA" for 2013 and 2014 and in Trip Advisor's "Hall of Fame." Presented in BOSE Surround Sound Audio. 100 Stories. Praised by parents as a "safe" introduction to 9/11. Guests are allowed to pick up rare World Trade Center artifacts.

“A must see”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

It brings you back to that terrible day. Everyone remembers where they were and what they were doing. We as Americans need to remember and never forget. It needs to bond all Americans. The museum needs to and I think they are in the process of doing, is adding more info.

“Breathtaking.”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

This is an amazing way to tell the story and effects of 9/11, but be prepared to take some tissues.
