A beautiful place for the people and relatives of the Oklahoma City bombing to sit and ponder why? Do take the time to visit if only for a few minutes.

This is a wonderfully memorial to the innocent souls lost to heartless murderers. The chairs representing each person will touch your heart. It's a beautiful and peaceful place to reflect on the sometimes worst times of our great nations history. I visited here during the day and the evening. I recommend going into the museum in the afternoon and visiting... More

The Oklahoma Memorial is such a beautiful way to honor the people who died in the bombing. We were in awe with the beautiful water display and even the way they used the old building to enhance the memorial site. It was very worth going and we didn't even go inside the museum, since it was closed.

Beautiful grounds and memorial. Museum tells the incredibly sad and tragic story in an engaging way. I want to come back and visit in the evening.

You are immediately struck by the silence. Despite being in a city with myriads of visitors you are struck by how quiet it is. Also by the reverence of everyone there. It is hard to imagine the carnage wrought on unsuspecting people. Well done.

This is a precious and well thought musuem. Be prepared as walking through the museum and grounds can be emotional. Bring a Kleene and someone to talk with afterwards. The chairs are arranged by the floor that they were on in the building. The second floor, where the daycare center was, has tiny little chairs. Oh, so precious!!! I confess... More

The minute you are inside the Memorial gates you'll notice the quiet respite from the noise and hustle of downtown. It is eerily beautiful. There's no charge to visit this and it's convenient to other attractions. My young grandchildren were with us so we didn't visit the museum. I have not been there since the renovation.

This memorial and museum is a beautiful place to honor the lives lost in the Murrah bombing. It is a wonderful location to reflect on the meaning of life and loss as well. It should be noted that it is probably not a place for young children to run wild as most patrons are quiet and contemplative.

It is a simple tribute, beautiful, well thought out.... the moment time stood still and changed lives forever. It's hard to see each and every chair that represents a life taken too soon - especially the small chairs for each child. The reflecting pool is a beautiful touch. I didn't make it to the museum because I had two small... More
