What people are saying about 9/11 Ground Zero Museum Workshop, Meatpacking District

When we first got there we wondered if we were even in the right place. We went in and went upstairs to a one room place. I kept thinking there has to be more rooms somewhere. Still feeling skeptical and thinking did I just waste my money on this, I soon found out it was way more than what I could have imagined. Having a one on one experience with Gary as our personal guide and host was phenomenal. Having experienced the aftermath of 9/11 firsthand gave a much more personal and meaningful tour of the pictures and artifacts in the museum. It was so worth going to. We all enjoyed it.

AMAZING. Do NOT be fooled by the space of this museum. It indeed is, the BIGGEST little museum. So much information. Engaging for all ages. Artifacts are all there! Actual glass, marble, etc. from the WTC. 12/10 experience!

Very knowledgeable and fun guide, definitely saw areas that we would have never found on our own. Highly recommend!!

Loved this experience. It was so personable and you really get to learn a lot about 9/11 and the people involved.

It was amazingly done we learned so much in highly recommended
