The Memorial is moving and the museum is awesome at making one feel like they are reliving history. The museum does an excellent job of making you experience the exact moment of the bombing, the first responders, the media coverage, the devastation, the trial of the bomber, and the rebuilding of the spirit of the people. Parking can be found... More

This is an extremely beautiful and moving memorial. We happened to arrive on the afternoon of the 19th anniversary of this horrible event. There were many people visiting, but you could have heard a pin drop. The chairs of the deceased are a devastating reminder of the large number of people who lost their lives on April 19, 1995. There... More

On a recent visit to Oklahoma City, I took my children to the OKC National Memorial and Museum. We were there for 3 hours... and we could have stayed all day. The museum itself is awesome... so much information... video... artifacts... we could have read and interacted there all day... and the outside memorial is just gorgeous. What a wonderful... More

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
