Arrived too late to visit museum, but found the memorial extremely impressive. It may have been all the more so for being nearly alone there at dusk but we were impressed by the powerful message conveyed by relatively simple components. Really a must see.

A very touching memorial. I did not visit the Museum but just took some time to stroll around the memorial itself and reflect on the lives lost. Very easy to find and to park. Walk all the way around to get the whole experience.

We were only able to visit the memorial, not the indoor museum. We arrived in Oklahoma City too late to go to the museum here, but we went down to visit the outdoor memorial. The first thing that struck us was the chain link fence along the road, holding the collection of mementos that have been left over the years.... More

We weren't sure how the teenage kids would handle the museum, but they ended up getting as much out of the exhibits as we did. It is very solemn and parts are extremely sad, but the story is very well told. We plan to bring out-of-town guests with us next time.

This memorial is really well done. You can walk through the outside exhibit or go inside and get the full story. It was well worth the time to visit this historical treasure. OKC should be very proud of how they honored the people who died in this tragedy.

The outside memorial is very impressive and moving, they did an exceptional job and you could tell a lot of thought was put into the project. The problem we had was how expensive it was to go through the museum $12.00 for an adult and it does go down in price from there which for many is hard for them... More

Went too late to see the museum. The memorial is quite a somber and peaceful place. It brings back memories of that fateful time in our nation.

Very well planned museum. Start with the crying Jesus statue outside the entrance. Then walk through the outdoor memorial, reflect on the stones representing the people that fell victim for the tragic terror. Indoor museum is on the third and second floor, in that order. Follow the guides and the time line of what happened and how. In a special... More

The museum is wonderful. Very well thought out. Puts you right back there to 1995. Park is serene and beautiful. Go back at night if you can for another look at its beauty

This museum and grounds is amazing. It is very peaceful and serene. It is a very respectful tribute to those that died that day. The museum is very well done and worth a visit!
