  • Whilst we were in NYC we did all the main attractions. The 9/11 workshop was by far the most interesting and best value. It may only be a small museum but there was plenty there to engross us for nearly 3 hours. The museum curator Gary really cares about the stories that need to be told regarding the artefacts found during the recovery operation. You learn much more than from the fairly sterile larger 9/11 Museum next to the memorial pools. He was onsite for months during that period and has numerous tales of hope and heartache from those times. The only chance you will get to see and hold real items from the Twin Towers. Thanks Gary for a thought provoking afternoon. Stuart and Natalie in England.
  • Wow. Just wow. Gary's photography is beautiful and emotional. My eyes welled up with tears listening to his narration. This museum is well worth checking out and honestly I enjoyed more so than the Tribute Museum. The 9/11 Museum Workshop is more intimate and allows more time to really embrace the impact of the tragic day of 9/11. Definitely visit, you won't be disappointed. And Gary is down to earth and will answer all your questions.
  • A must for anyone interested in 9/11. A small and intimate space, with relics from the building you can touch and recovery stories by those who worked on the pile. Gary's photography is unique as he was there for months alongside firefighters working on the recovery. It brings another perspective to the 9/11 story. Gary's passion for documenting the recovery through photographs is a moving experience. Must see. Thank you Gary for your devotion to telling this side of the story.
  • My wife and I booked this museum trip and we were so glad we did and by chance the person taking our group went sick and we were taken round by Gary the photographer who was there! I just want to say thank you Gary and keep up the fantastic work you and your staff have done If you havnt done this it’s a must and you have to book before going down to ground zero it’s a very small and personal, accounts of people who were there and there stories Always in our thoughts this trip will never leave me Thank you Dean and Chris
  • 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.
