The Museum employees on the steps clearly have rigamortis (their legs are straight up, not releaxed) and the patrons are all wide eyed, face first into their meals. If they were knocked out, they wouldn't look that way, especially the black woman and elderly woman.

There's also the fact that The Joker even says, "I make art till someone dies *looks around the museum*, see? Ha Ha".

He killed them all. That line isn't even in the script either.

The script says Vicki is the only one left conscious, sure, but it also states that Joker wants Bob to leave Edvard Munch's "THE SCREAM" (in the actual film, it's Bacon). In the script, Batman also gets his cape caught in the Batwing wreckage (Sam Hamm hated the idea of Batman wearing a cape). There's also the whole sequence with the Mayor. The final film is much, much different.
Fair enough. I can buy that.

Also, Alicia is debatable. "You can't make an omelet without breaking some eggs". I'm inclined to believe that, based on his personality alone that he killed her.
But why would he want to kill her? She was what he called a living work of art. I can't see him destroying something he created and thought was great art.
