9/11 Museum Gets Millionth Visitor

NEW YORK (AP) -

The museum at the site of the 9/11 attacks in New York has gotten its one-millionth visitor just under four months after opening to the public.

Museum President Joe Daniels said Tuesday the million-visitor mark wasn’t expected to be reached until sometime in the fall, but visitors recognize the museum is “a piece of history that they need to understand firsthand.”

The National September 11 Memorial and Museum opened May 21. Visitors have come from all 50 states and more than 130 countries. The museum identified its one-millionth visitor as Karen McDaniel, of Myrtle Beach, S.C.
