Show many things to see, too much to remember. Very moving and emotional. Words aren't enough, you simply can't miss it while in Oklahoma City.

The Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum is not your average museum. The interactive exhibits and news clips make you feel as though you were there. It is a tribute to the innocent people who died and to those they left behind. It leaves you with a feeling of hope - of good triumphing over evil.

This was 20 years in the making. I was there 1week after the bombing and visited the sight. To come back and see the Memorial and the museum was incredible. Nothing looks the same. The museum took me right back to that time, and was very well put together.

Very moving experience. A place that is a MUST to visit when in OKC. Words do not do this place justice - you need to be here.

My life was changed while going through the museum and listening to and watching the videos of the testimony of those who's lives were forever changed in a moment of madness. Seeing the items left from that fateful day and the picture of the fireman with a little lifeless body cradled in his arms are so sad. The museum is... More

This museum is an excellent museum. It demonstrates the power of American hope and justice system during and after a time of darkness. I was 12 when it occurred and remember how shocked I was that such an American tragedy could occur in my country. Here are my pros and cons: Pros: -Well organized and detailed -Visually appealing -You can... More

I'm not sure about a memorial to a crime. Especially one this big. It's nicely done but I think there is a better use of the space.

Can't go visit without feeling hurt for all the families that lost loved ones especially the children. Impossible to understand how anyone could kill innocent people. This National Memorial should be visited by everyone driving through Oklahoma City. It will change you!

This is an important place in American history. Very much worth the visit to understand where we have been, the potential of bad people, and what we can overcome. It is not fun but it is incredible. It is not ugly but it is beautifully reverent. It is not exciting but it is peacefully emotional. It is a place you... More
