Ground Zero Museum Workshop, known as the "Biggest LITTLE Museum in New York, exhibits 80 famous photographs taken during the recovery efforts at Ground Zero along with various artifacts collected. Gary Marlon Suson, the Official Photographer at Ground Zero for the Uniformed Firefighters Association and founder of the Ground Zero Museum Workshop, was the only person authorized to take photographs at Ground Zero during the 11 month long recovery effort.

The museum's entire photo collection was dubbed as "Rare Photos" by the New York Times in 2002. A highly acclaimed Barnes & Noble photography book featuring the same collection exhibited by the museum was also published titled, "Requiem: Images of Ground Zero." Among of the museum's most notable exhibit titles are Frozen Clock, K-9 Recovery Dogs, Today is 11, Bible Page and FDNY Honor Guard.

The museum provides daily guided tours where in addition to the photographs, visitors can also browse through an extensive collection of artifacts collected during the recovery, items worn by recovery workers, and actual tools that were used for digging. A rare video footage from inside the World Trade Center site is displayed on large screen in surround sound. Also one of the museum's best features is its lifelike 3-D installations that place viewers right into the "hole" at Ground Zero. The Ground Zero Museum is interactive by nature since visitors are allowed to pick up and hold certain items to get a greater understanding of what took place during the 9/11 recovery. Each of the images and artifacts exhibited has a story which will be explained by the guide. Self guided audio tour units in different languages are also included with each ticket purchase. Located in the historic Meatpacking District, this Museum is a "Must-See" before visiting the World Trade Center site.
