We were looking forward to this and prepurchased tickets with Go pass, we planned to go Saturday, googled the opening hours noted 11 - 5pm, go pass info and the organisations website indicated that last tour was at 1pm, which was fine as we were happy to do the audio tour. We planned our day with that in mind, arrived at 3pm, where we happened to be stuck at the front door with another family trying to visit the museum with their daughter. We both rang the bell for awhile with no answer (waited about 10 minutes) ended up having to call the museum where we were advised they had closed at 2. Unfortunately this day was the last day that we could make the workshop, as Sunday had limited opening hours and we had further things booked and then fly out the following day, money and time wasted - when an update and clarity to organisations website / google info would have solved this issue Recommend changing/updating google info/website, updating website to clearly indicate opening hours and some sort of signage to the door

Very heart touching. It is a great way to honor those who lost their lives and for the men and women who served and lost their lives helping others.

At first I was afraid that this would be one of those disrespectful tourist traps about September 11th, but given the many good reviews, I decided to take a look. The Ground Zero Museum Workshop is a collection of artifacts and many pictures about the recovery in the months following September 11th. It is primarily the work of Gary Marlon Suson, the only official photographer who was allowed to photograph at Ground Zero. He had exclusive rights to take up-close pictures during the recovery (with no pay), and as a result had a very moving collection of pictures. This Museum/Workshop is not touristy at all. In fact, they only let some 20 people into the room during a given tour, and if you wouldn't know where to find it, you probably won't even notice it at street level (you actually have to ring a bell for them to let you walk up). The tour starts out with a short documentary about the photographer and how he got access to the site and how he didn't publish the pictures until years later. After the video, the tour guide highlights some of the most important/popular artifacts, and then you are on your own exploring the artifacts (that you are encouraged to touch and inspect). Equipped with an audio guide you can also get an explanation (by the photographer) about each picture. All in all, it's a moving tribute, and you'll learn much more about the impact of 9/11, than if you were to just visit the World Trade Center Memorial (that is until that museum there opens in 2014).

The memorial site is amazing: It gives you a serious sense without being heavy. The concept of the pools representing the two fallen towers is impressive. We missed a few signs that will provide information about the exact events of 9/11. We ended up using wikipedia. The arrangements for getting passes ahead of time worked out really well.

I loved this place to honor those who lost their lives by helping others, without knowing what happen the next moment.

If you want to know what it was like at ground zero and wish to support charities for rescue workers and families, this is where you need to be. We lucked out and Gary Suson was there to sign one of a limited edition photography collection book "Requiem" for us. It is a beautiful and if you can get one of these books, definitely do, it's worth it. You meet at the building, go up to the exhibit room where you will find places to sit. Excellent footage and videos are shown for 15 minutes after a short introduction. You are given headphones for the audio tour and the photographer narrates each of the artifacts and you may move through them as you please until the end of the two-hour time block. It really is some fantastic photography to give you a sense of connection for this life-changing event.

Ground Zero is so moving. You could just stand there and feel something in the air. It can be emotional. The fountain is really beautiful. All the victims names are etched into it. You have to get a reservation for the timeslot you are visiting. It’s very organized and easy. Make sure you go to the bathroom before you visit. There is none onsite and you will be in line and going through security for awhile.

I was impressed by the museum of ground zero it was tiny but had a great audio visual presentation of what lead to the 9/11 attacks and what the familes felt and showed some artifcats of what were left behind from that day. They offered memoriabblia of to help with the making of ground zero
