Latest Design for 9/11 Museum Merges Old and New – NYTimes.com

The ground floor will have ticket windows, a large security area in which visitors will undergo airport-style screening, and a staircase, escalators and elevators down which they will begin a trip that will lead them nearly 70 feet below street level, ending near an exposed part of the slurry wall. There will also be exit doors ushering them into the heart of the memorial plaza.

About two million visitors are expected annually at the museum, said Alice M. Greenwald, the museum director. The building is designed to handle 1,500 people arriving an hour, she said.

Are that many people that fascinated with 9/11?
