September 11th museum: An immersion experience

Originally uploaded by craigminch.
It seems that there's a move afoot to make the 9/11 museum in New York realistic; they want people to participate rather than just look.
Visitors to the Sept. 11 memorial museum could relive the 2001 terrorist attacks in an "immersive" area that surrounds them with pictures of the falling towers, the sounds of police sirens and the last words of some of those who died at the World Trade Center.
The experience would "try to make visitors feel as if they were in the towers, with the sounds of sirens and even voicemail messages left on Sept. 11 by those who died."

Like I want to feel that way... I couldn't even handle the Holocaust Memorial in Boston (pictured with this post), and it is metaphoric in nature.
