The city have done a fantastic job in producing a very touching and moving experience to commemorate what was a devastating blow to Oklahoma City. It is an experience that should not be missed and will remind all that we should all be aware of the possible dangers in our everyday lives.

You will not be disappointed. It tells the story without words. A great place to take in what happened in OKC.

The museum is well done. It contains a lot of exhibits, artifacts and information. Plan to spend a few hours in there without even noticing. The museum is currently undergoing renovation/upgrades on a portion of the second floor, but it does not deter from the overall experience.

Definitely a must see in OKC. Go into the museum, there is a small fee, but worth it. No fee for viewing the reflection pool and chairs. It is a haunting view at night. Drive by if possible.

It's difficult to have a memorial that is awe-inspiring and yet respectful to those who lost their lives in a tragic and unforgettable moment in time. However, this beautiful place manages to do just that. Over the years, I've visited this memorial many times - just after the bombing when the only memorial were flowers, toys, candles, & moving notes... More

The Oklahoma City National Memorial is something you can see in 15 minutes, or if you go to the museum, plan on three to four hours. I would recommend you spend an hour at least. Most people are drawn to the field of empty chairs on the south side. Don't forget the survivor tree in the northeast corner. Look for... More

I was a RN volunteer for three weeks; I seldom speak of my experiences at ground zero that day, assisting FEMA and the ATF, setting up the rescuers triage at the post office. The memorial is an accurate and detailed experience of the facts, sights and sounds. The architecture evokes a feeling of spirituality. The memorial is a somber place... More

This memorial to the devastating bombing in Oklahoma City is both beautiful and haunting. The night view is as beautiful as the day, and totally different. If possible, you should see it both ways. There is always a ranger on site to discuss the memorial - don't hesitate to engage them. This is worth the detour off I-40 to experience.

One of the best memorials outside of Washington DC that I've seen. A must see if you come to the city.

The outdoor memorial is open all hours, it's free and is a well-done reminder of what happened in OKC on April 19, 1995. If you have a little more time, for a reasonable entry fee, the museum is a very touching tribute to those who lost their lives. They are in the process of re-doing some of the exhibits, but... More
