    NEW YORK (AP) - Faced with hefty operating costs, the foundation building the 9/11 museum at the World Trade Center has decided to charge an admission fee of $20 to $25 when the site opens next year.

The head of the Memorial foundation says there's little choice because it's expected to cost nearly $60 million a year to operate the site.

Entry to the memorial plaza will still be free.
