Absolutely incredible experience to visit the memorial and museum. One of the most moving and emotional places I have ever been. The memorial and museum are both very well done. The timeline format of the museum is extremely powerful. The Water Recourses Board room is extremely powerful and brought a tear to my eyes. I think this is a must... More

Honoring of the victims, survivors and responders to this tragedy. Very well done and informative. I felt like I witnessed the event first hand.

Like with so many tragic events in our history, many of us can recall where we were or what we were doing when we learned of the tragedy of the Oklahoma City bombing on April 19,1995. Seeing the site and museum in person is a powerful experience; especially if you are old enough to remember the tragic event as it... More

I took my 13year old son to see this and educate him about what happened here on American soil. We went at night, which made it more dramatic. God rest their souls.

I have been here a couple times now. It's always moving. I must admit that when the designs for this memorial were submitted, I didn't care for it at all. I thought the empty chairs idea was wakey. Having said that, I am so glad no one asked my opinion! This is a beautiful moving memorial done in such amazing... More

Family of 5 really was moved while there. We only had 3 hours, not nearly enough time for us to see it all - only got through the initial floor of the museum and the outdoor monument. Wish I could go back today again! Memories just keep flooding back when I am there. 13 yr old son was transfixed and... More

The rangers that explain the bombing and how the memorial is set up are very knowledgeable. The Memorial site is beautiful, tranquil and sad. So sad to think people can hate so much.

Four couples from our little country church rode to OKC for a two night get away. We spent the afternoon at the memorial and the museum. Very well done. The focus is on the victims and their families. "It was just another day" Well worth the time.

While this place was of so much destruction and loss of life's, it has been turned into a peaceful and very moving place. It is hard to believe that it is nearly 20 years since this tragedy occurred. Definitely a place to visit and reflect! There is a fee for the museum and if you don't have time for that... More

We visited at night as had heard chair bases were lit at night. It was very dramatic to see all the chairs reflected in the gazing pool. We returned the next day to see in daylight. Only downside was that all brochure holders were empty both times. Gift shop was nice. We did not take the museum tour due to... More
