Ground Zero Museum Workshop

A $25.00 value - Included with your New York Explorer Pass!

Recently named one of the Top 25 Museums in the United States by TripAdvisor!

The "first-stop" for tourists before visiting the 9/11 Memorial Pools. Thought provoking and emotional, the Ground Zero Museum Workshop is a must-see even for young visitors. Experience an intimate portrait of life inside Ground Zero, from artifacts you can hold to pictures that express what words cannot.

Clearly, nothing can overshadow the importance and emotional impact of seeing Ground Zero itself. Ground Zero Museum Workshop, however, is a wonderful preamble to the main memorial. This is a 5-star rated tour in New York City, and was recently included in Trip Advisor's coveted "Top 25 Museums in the USA" list.

Artifacts and the stunning images of 9-11 Official Ground Zero Photographer Gary Marlon Suson are on exhibit for the public. The daily, two-hour tours give visitors an up close and personal look at the remarkable people and stories from the Ground Zero recovery effort. It should be noted that this child-friendly museum does not discuss the actual events of 9-11, but rather focuses on the 8 months that followed the attacks.

Comments about Smart Destinations Ground Zero Museum Workshop:

I would highly recommend this excursion -tasteful and thought provoking. My two 14-year old children are not normally museum lovers but we could have easily stayed longer than the two hour allotted slot and listened to the well presented material, a little bit longer! Superb.

Comments about Smart Destinations Ground Zero Museum Workshop:

The Ground Zero Workshop Museum brings a new perspective to the tragic events that unfolded on 9/11. Amongst the many artefacts on display are quotes from those who experienced the disaster first hand or lost a loved one - there are amazing stories and the whole experience puts life's problems in perspective. Everyone remembers where they were when they heard the terrible news, but this musuem takes you there. 9/11 is now part of the fabric of Manhattan - if you are visiting NY, this is a must do.
