"60 Minutes'" Lesley Stahl went underground, 7 stories below ground zero at the tip of Manhattan, to give audiences a detailed look at the 9/11 museum, which is still being constructed.

"I think any American that walks into this space is going to feel the emotion," she told 60 Minutes Overtime. "It's church-like. I felt the same feelings you feel in a cathedral," she said.

On what you will experience inside:

"First of all, you're going to be thrust back. You're going to hear voices of people talking about what they were doing at that moment because all of us remember what we were doing at that moment. And then you're going to see all the faces--3,000 faces--and it's overwhelming to see the array of people."
