Ground Zero Museum Workshop Coupons and Deals
We all remember where we were on September 11, 2001. While the tragedy stands out among the most horrific events in our nation's history, we have never been a more proud nation after witnessing the heroic acts of firefighters, police officers, and rescue workers on that day. Connect with these harrowing acts of courage and learn more about the real life impacts of terrorism at the Ground Zero Museum Workshop: Images & Artifacts from the Recovery. A 'kid-friendly' museum that shows no graphic footage from the day of 9/11. Through Official Ground Zero Photographer Gary Marlon Suson's stunning photographs, you will have a chance to learn more about the nine- month "Recovery Period" at Ground Zero. Suson, from 9/11 onward, focused on the human-level impact of the destruction at the World Trade Center site. The Museum serves to educate the public as well as offering a place for victims' families to remember their loved ones. Guests can hold Ground Zero artifacts and listen to 100 stories behind the images in their self-guided audio wands in English, Italian, French & Spanish. It is also known worldwide as the "Biggest LITTLE Museum in New York" for its tiny size and massive story content. Iconic images include "Frozen Clock - The "Genesis 11 Bible Page" - "K-9 Recovery Dogs" - "Honor Guard" ceremony and more. The museum, which was just rated in the "Top 25 Museums in the USA" by Trip Advisor, supports a variety of charities, including the FDNY Foundation, The FDNY Firefighter Ralph Geidel Cancer Fund and more. Tour guides and friendly staff help make the experience personal and emotionally safe. The museum is regularly ranked on major travel sites in the "Top 10 Attractions in NYC." GZMW Founder & Curator Gary Marlon Suson is an Honorary Battalion Chief in the Fire Department of New York. The nonprofit Ground Zero Museum Workshop serves as a wonderful compliment and "first stop" before a visit to the 9/11 Memorial. Located in the Meatpacking District, within a cab or subway ride from the 9/11 Memorial, the museum provides insight into the unbelievable efforts of uniformed firefighters, police and recovery workers. Included is a 12-minute custom video, narration by your tour guide, a walk-thru of artifacts and then the self-guided audio experience which contains real audio sound effects from the Recovery at Ground Zero. The result is the most realistic account of what it was like "to be there." Tours sell out well in advance so book early. While the rebuilding at Ground Zero continues, this Museum has been quietly helping visitors come to grips with their feelings surrounding 9/11 since 2005.
