Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The 9/11 Memorial Museum has welcomed more than 300,000 visitors since its opening in May, about five percent higher than expectations.

The museum's president, Joe Daniels, said that officials feel "great" about the attendance figures in a post on the museum's website.

The 9/11 Memorial Museum hopes to draw about 2.5 million visitors each year. For 2014, because of the May opening, the museum's target is 1.5 million visitors.

Tickets to the museum cost $24, though a number of discounted admissions -- as well as free admission between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Tuesdays -- are available.
