A 1.5 TeV Muon Collider is currently being studied by the Muon Accelerator project. Experiments at the muon collider will need to cope with intense backgrounds from decays of the incoming beams. Initial physics and detector studies including muon decay backgrounds are now underway. We report on some of these studies utilizing a "toy" detector, including hit densities in the tracker and vertex detector and well as energy densities and fluctuations in the calorimeter. We also discuss possible detector strategies for coping with the high background and radiation rates.
