We have visited the memorial several times before, but this is the first time we have had a park ranger give a talk outside. I learned more information and had a better understanding than anytime before. The beauty that now takes the place of such a tragedy. My heart goes out to those who lost someone there.

Embarrassingly I must admit that I don't have strong recollections of that terrible day in 1995 (I'm not local, but I was already in my mid-20s when the tragedy occurred). Despite this, I walked through the entire museum really choked up and moved at so many different things. The entire layout and experience clearly had a tremendous amount of thought... More

A must stop while in OKC. So much to learn about this memorial. Take tissues, very emotional displays.

Only visiting the outdoor memorial was enough to give me a dose of reality, and totally forget about my selfish daily complaints about how hot it was, too much work to do etc. I do not think anyone should ever visit OKC without a trip to the Memorial. Next time, I hope to find the museum open, and once again,... More

This was #1 on my list of things I wanted to see while on a business trip to OKC. I arrived late afternoon, visited the outdoor memorial and had not realized there was also a museum. Seeking A/C on a very hot afternoon I wandered inside & was very impressed. Although I remembered the bombing when it occurred, seeing this... More

Very emotional and intense. Nicely designed museum takes you through the story from the beginning of the day to the bombing to the aftermath. The museum is undergoing some renovations so watch your step. Plenty to see in the museum. The memorial outside is very serene and peaceful which is much needed after the intensity of the museum.

A very emotional and thought- through museum that honors and cherishes the memory of all those people who lost their lives in or due to the horrible bombing in OKC. If in OKC, it's a must see. We planned to stay 1h but ended up staying 3h.

Very moving memorial. The chairs representing the individuals who loss their lives is something. If you are visiting OKC this needs to be on your list.

This was an excellent place to pay tribute to Americans who have died because of terrorism. It is a good opportunity to teach our children and grandchildren about the meaning of being American and the importance of our freedom even though it is not free.
