WWII Museum expects its 3 millionth visitor

NEW ORLEANS (AP) – The World War II Museum, which opened June 6, 2000, in New Orleans, expects its three millionth visitor to arrive sometime Tuesday.

The museum has been experiencing record-setting attendance. Last month, it had a total of 44,807 visitors _ the most ever in a one-month period _ and over 1,000 more than its previous record month in March 2010.

Based on current visitor total and visitation trends, the museum will expect the three millionth visitor around midmorning.

A presentation ceremony will begin at 11:30 a.m. CDT.
