New York City

Ground Zero Museum Workshop

This museum brings all aspects of the “recovery period” to life in images, artifacts, and the breathtaking stories behind them, from Ground Zero. Exhibits focus on the heroic stories of the people who made up the 9-month recovery. Visitors can handle artifacts from 9/11, and some images are presented in a 3D installation, allowing visitors to feel as if they are there in person. Group tours include a 12-minute video, an interactive walkthrough of artifacts, and time to explore the hundreds of exhibits at the museum. A self-guided audio tour contains over 100 stories about the different images and artifacts.
