Good Photos, Weird Tone at the Ground Zero Museum

Since 9/11 touched pretty much everyone in the United States in some way or another, a museum dedicated to the victims of the tragedy is a good idea in theory.  While the Ground Zero Museum offers visitors some beautiful photos that definitely stir your emotions, the tone of the museum leaves a little to be desired.  At times, the museum can seem more like a shrine to the photographer than the victims.  This museum has great pictures, but it may not be worth your money.

Features: Widely regarded as one of the best museums in NYC, the Ground Zero Museum Workshop features 100 photographs by official Ground Zero photographer Gary Marlon Suson and numerous artifacts from the Ground Zero recovery effort, including sheets of window glass from the Twin Towers and a clock stopped at the moment of the first attack.

Why We Go: The Ground Zero Museum Workshop is one of the best museums in New York City. Tours of this kid-friendly NYC museum consist of a short historical introduction by a trained guide, a 12-minute film screening, and a self-guided audio tour of 100 images and artifacts from the Ground Zero recovery effort. Tours typically last between 90 and 120 minutes.

  • Moving Pictures: Gary Marlon Suson was one of only two photographers allowed to photograph the 11-month recovery effort at Ground Zero NY. Featured at the Ground Zero Museum Workshop are some of Suson's most famous pieces, including the renowned "Genesis 11: Tower of Babylon" and "Honor Guard" images. You'll leave this famous NYC museum with a newfound respect for the human spirit.
  • Fascinating Tours: Of course, there's more to the Ground Zero Museum Workshop than photographs. You'll also get to see real artifacts recovered from the "hole" at Ground Zero NYC, including items worn by recovery workers and real items used for digging. You'll even have the opportunity to pick up and hold World Trade Center steel and window glass.
  • Convenient Location: One of the best things about the Ground Zero Museum Workshop is its location. Located in New York City's Meatpacking District, in the heart of downtown Manhattan, this NYC museum is conveniently close to many of the best restaurants in Chelsea NYC, including San Rocco New York and Las Chicas Locas Mexican Restaurant NYC.

Inside Knowledge: Appointed by UFA Manhattan Trustee Rudy Sanfilippo and overseen by FDNY Chief of Department Daniel Nigro, Gary Marlon Suson was the sole photographer allowed to take pictures of the Ground Zero recovery effort. For 11 months, Suson worked tirelessly and without pay, taking out bank loans to complete his project. Now his pictures may be viewed at the Ground Zero Museum Workshop.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Buy Your Tickets in Advance: The Ground Zero Museum Workshop NYC does not accept walk-ins. We recommend buying your tickets at least 72 hours in advance, as tours of this popular Manhattan museum are limited to 25 people, and tickets sell out fast.
  • Do Support a Good Cause: While tickets to the Ground Zero Museum Workshop may seem expensive, the price is well worth it: a portion of the proceeds is donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and the FDNY Firefighter Joe Graffagnino Children's Fund.
  • Don't Bring Your Bags: The Ground Zero Museum Workshop NYC requires that you check all backpacks and large bags before you begin your tour (strollers, however, are allowed). We recommend leaving all shopping bags, computers, and cameras at home. Food and drink are not permitted at this kid-friendly NYC museum.
  • Don't Forget Your Tissues: While the Museum strives to capture only the heroic aspects of September 11, viewing the exhibits at the Ground Zero Museum Workshop can be an emotional experience, especially for those who lost loved ones on 9/11. Don't forget to bring tissues with you when you visit this popular NY museum. Resting places are available for those who need them.
