Things to Know Before You Go

  • Museum workshop tickets must be booked in advance, as only 28 guests can be accommodated per tour.

  • Considered non-graphic with a focus on recovery efforts rather than the attacks themselves, the museum is kid-friendly, welcoming children as young as 4.

  • The museum's self-guided audio tours are available in four languages.

  • Many travelers choose to visit this site before heading to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. Note that the two are different and separate.

Artifacts at the Ground Zero Museum Workshop

Built under the premise that education leads to healing, the museum’s experiential galleries include artifacts—including the must-see piece of the first plane to hit the World Trade Center towers—that visitors are welcome to touch. Also on display is the largest piece of window glass from the twin towers, a frozen clock that still displays the time of the attacks, and a charred bible page. The artifacts were collected by official photographer Suson during his work at Ground Zero or donated to the museum by family members of victims and others.
