Visitors to the 9-11 memorial in New York City will see two huge pieces of the World Trade Center's original steel facade.

The two columns, each 70 to 90-feet high, will be inside a glass-walled pavilion that leads people to a museum devoted to the 2001 terrorist attacks.

The National September 11th Memorial and Museum has released new drawings that show the columns rising next to the stairway that will lead visitors down into the museum. Visitors to the eight-acre memorial plaza will be able to see the columns through glass.

Museum officials are still considering what other artifacts to showcase at the site and where to put them. Some of the 9-11 families have lobbied for the columns and another sculpture to be displayed at street level.
