Ground Zero Museum Workshop Tour
Visit the Ground Zero Museum Workshop for an intimate, detailed and emotional introduction to the “Real Ground Zero” and to things you won't see at the nearby September 11 Memorial & Museum. The “kid-friendly” non-graphic imagery, 100 audio stories, Ground Zero artifacts and rare photos housed in this non-profit museum exhibit the heroic efforts of the FDNY firefighters on that fateful day in 2001 and the 9-month “Recovery Period." Winner of TripAdvisor’s “Top 25 Museums in the USA” award in 2013 & 2014, this is the only place you can actually pick up and hold Ground Zero artifacts, a chilling reminder for adults and a chance for young children to learn about a significant moment in history. Conveniently located in the historic Meatpacking District near the High Line Park, Chelsea Market Eatery and Whitney Museum.

The Ground Zero Museum Workshop in the Meat-Packing District on West 14th Street features stunning images, rare video and remnants from the Ground Zero Recovery Period, all packed into an intimate and emotional space. On display are 100 of Gary Marlon Suson's most well-known images, including the charred Genesis 11: Tower of Babylon Bible Page found in the WTC rubble, the Frozen Clock stuck at 10:02am, marking the collapse of the South Tower and several FDNY Honor Guard images. The actual clock itself is also on display in the museum.
The only all-access, sanctioned photographer at Ground Zero, Suson's one-of-a-kind, 3-D photo installations place viewers into the "hole" at Ground Zero. Visitors are also allowed the rare opportunity to pick up and hold World Trade Center steel and window glass. Tours are limited to just 25 people, and include a powerful 15-minute video.
The Ground Zero Museum is about 5-minutes from Ground Zero via the "E" train. Daily tours last about 90 minutes and include the intimate stories behind 100 images and remnants. This is a "don't-miss" museum that touches the heart of young and old alike. No graphic or morbid images are displayed and the museum is known for its sensitivity to a very tough subject matter. Suitable for children.
