What To Expect
This is not the National September 11 Memorial and Museum near the new Freedom Tower in Lower Manhattan. This award-winning museum is located in the historic Meatpacking District. It lets visitors see what it was like to be on the front lines with FDNY firefighters after the 9/11 attacks and to experience the aftermath at Ground Zero through the lens of official Ground Zero photographer of FDNY, Gary Marlon Suson.
See the largest piece of World Trade Center window glass in existence and the Frozen Clock, which is stuck at 10:02 a.m., the precise time the South Tower collapsed. There’s the famous Genesis 11 charred Bible page plus a collection of images described as “rare” by the New York Times because they can only be seen at this location. There are also 3-D photo installations that place visitors into the hole that was left at Ground Zero.
This kid-friendly museum is a great way for parents to teach their children about the 9/11 attacks in a gentle manner. The museum doesn’t focus on the day of the attacks but rather the nine-month recovery effort to locate the many missing victims.
The Ground Zero Museum Workshop is the winner of three TripAdvisor awards: Top 25 Museums in the USA, Traveler’s Choice and five-time Hall-of-Fame Certificate of Excellence honors.
