The Ground Zero Museum Workshop is the winner of three TripAdvisor awards: Top 25 Museums in the USA, Traveler’s Choice and the Hall-of-Fame Certificate of Excellence.
This moving and interactive museum, most accurately described as a workshop, tells the stories of 9/11 as witnessed by the only Official Photographer during the aftermath of the tragic events.
On your 2-hour guided tour, you’ll see hundreds of images – many that can only be viewed here – and touch authentic artifacts from 9/11 recovery efforts. The museum brings you “inside Ground Zero” through state-of-the-art recorded audio stories including real sounds from the daily dramas of the FDNY firefighters and recovery crews, from K-9 dogs barking to Chaplains reciting prayer into walkie talkies. 3-D installations take visitors further into the depths of “the hole” that was left at Ground Zero.
This museum, located a short subway ride away from the World Trade Center site, is considered a “must-see” BEFORE visiting the 9/11 Memorial. The Ground Zero Museum Workshop design is based on the idea that “education promotes healing.” Visitors of all ages from around the nation and the globe attest to its captivating power. The museum is praised by parents for its non-graphic imagery and educational value.
Inside the museum, you’ll discover:
• 100 of the Official 9/11 Photographer’s most stunning images
• Notable artifacts from the recovery
• Items worn by recovery workers and tools used for digging
• Rare video footage from inside the Ground Zero site displayed on large screen in surround sound.
• A personal, intimate & non-commercial look at what happened inside Ground Zero through the eyes of firefighters
*This non-profit museum donates to the FDNY Foundation and 9/11 charities.
