Attendance at the September 11th Museum in Lower Manhattan has apparently exceeded expectations since it opened last month.
The museum opened its doors to the public on May 21, and officials say more than 300,000 people have visited so far.
That's five percent more visitors than originally projected.
The strong start comes despite controversy over the museum's $24 admission fee.
The museum says the fee is necessary to cover its annual $63 million operating cost.
