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

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!

I made a quick evening visit here. I was deeply moved. There is a clear sense of tragedy here. On the night of my visit, there was a full moon peeping through a few clouds. The chairs which commemorate every life lost here cast an eerie glow throughout the park. Many children died in this awful tragedy. So sad. Had... More

Took my father on trip through the Midwest. We visited the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum. The whole museum was so moving. Every exhibit was so well explained and gave the viewer a feel for the destruction and terror that was going on during the time immediately after the explosion. I don't know when I've been so moved by... More

We stopped by before a concert and really wished we had time to visit the museum. The gardens are free and very much worth a visit, especially at night.

While we did not go into the museum, we walked all around the grounds. The reflective pond as well as the empty chairs were a nice memorial to those killed. It was very sad to not only see the larger chairs for the adults killed, but the small chairs for all the children who perished. Nice tribute and time well... More

We did not expect our visit to the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum to take more than a couple of hours. However, we underestimated the time we would want to spend viewing each aspect of the outdoor memorial as well as 2 smaller memorials just outside located by two churches. We actually ran out of time to go into... More

*This review is only for the memorial, I didn't tour the museum. Not everyone remembers (or was even alive) when the OKC bombing occurred. This memorial is an extremely well done reminder of what happened that day in 1995. I've toured many memorials around the world and this is one of the most touching.
