The area
Address
Neighbourhood: West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
How to get there

Gary Suson has brought together a collection of images and artifacts from 9/11 that leave you speechless. He narrates from his own personal experience and was hands on during our tour. A solemn reminder of how fragile life can be. It’s a must!

The 9/11 workshop is an intensely personal view of the tragedy and the months/years of restoration that followed. The photos are accompanied by emotional and skillfully assembled audios. I felt totally immersed in the stories of the firefighters who risked their lives to recover victims; felt like I was experiencing firsthand the scenes of destruction.
I went with my thirteen-year-old brother who isn't normally a fan of museums, but he did the entire tour and proceeded to tell our parents about it. Gary provides a really amazing, unique experience. I can't recommend it enough!!

We visited this as a group of 3 from Scotland on Friday 20th Jan 2023, as two of us are serving firefighters we found that the collection and the amount of information that we learned was outstanding and a very moving experience, we met Gary and where proud of his dedication to this cause and all voluntary.

We watched two short videos. Both were very humbling. Gary's photos really bring things into perspective. You could also listen to audio recordings of all the photos which all tell a story. We also were allowed to touch some of the artifacts. I highly recommend this tour!!

I was traveling with my 7-year-old. It was important to me that he get an understanding of what happened on 9-11, but we found the memorial site to be too much for him. THIS MUSEUM WORKSHOP was perfect. My son and I learned so much. You are invited into a private suite where the ONLY photographer allowed to film ground zero shares his story and the story of others. Gary Marlon Suson invites you into a hands-on experience. This checked all the boxes for us. My son shared with the rest of our family what he learned for days after our visit.

Without a doubt you should visit this museum, it’s one of a kind! We had the pleasure of meeting Gary, the only person allowed to take any photos of ground zero. He was humble and knowledgeable and respectful of the artefacts he has, along with his pictures tells world of the devastation of what happens that sad day! I cried for 99% of the tour as it was so moving! Please please what ever you do make this a place too visit when you come to NYC! Thank you Gary. X

This was a moving experience. The museum is well laid out and informative. There are also guided tours and audio guides available. Entry is timed by reservation and it was an efficient process.

The whole experience was moving, humbling and emotional.
From the moment we arrived, met by Gary we were immediately immersed into the time and space that was 911. The room is filled with ‘genuine’ objects from that terrible day. From the iron crosses made for the women of the lost men to the fire hats and boots worn by the emergency services. The photographs capture both the terror and beauty of a community working together selflessly.
This went above and beyond expectation and will stay with me forever. I could post lots of photos here but that would spoil it for you all and it deserves to be experienced authentically.

THIS IS A MUST AND WOULD RECOMMEND THIS over the 911 museum that everyone visits.

Oh and bring plenty of tissues - you’ll need them!

If you're going to learn about 9/11 in a personal, intimate and unique way then you need to go to Gary's museum. I actually preferred it to the main museum as it was like walking into Gary's memories and being there with him in his photos and experiences of that time. It does not have the commercial cash-in feeling that the main museum has and is a intimate walk through of personal stories, unusual facts and artifacts that you would not see in the main museum. He'll even let you handle some of them. Yes it's a small place but you could spend HOURS here just listening and taking in everything you are seeing. The compact nature of it almost makes it. You are getting an extremely intimate experience of 9/11 through the eyes of someone who lived, breathed and captured it. Gary has put his heart and soul into this museum and it is worth every penny you spend to experience it. We would definitely go back to Gary's museum rather than the commercially driven main museum. Thank you Gary for sharing your experiences, beautiful photos and artifacts with us. We will never ever forget it.

This powerful, emotional museum was the number 1 highlight of our trip to NYC. The 9/11 museum and memorial charts the events on the day, but this exceptional collection represents the scale of the recovery operation and the impact on the people involved. The beautiful, haunting images and exclusive collection of artifacts speak a thousand words, as the raw emotion of the recovery process is captured by the only photographer with access to the Ground Zero site. The love, care and dedication shown by the individuals involved in this horrific task is evident in these photographs and the exhibition stands as a testament to all those involved.
Without doubt, this is a place you have to visit whilst in NYC. I will carry this experience with me and I am so glad we chose to see it.
