The Memorial is beautiful and moving, the friendly park staff were helpful and shared the rationale behind the design decisions. The empty chairs and the survivor tree are very impactful.

We did not go inside but still very interesting. The chair lawn was cool. As was the pine tree outline.

The outside grounds are a can't miss when in OK City. However, the inside is not for the sensitive. Using audiotapes and darkness, some of the initial sounds are heard. The exhibits are well-done and enlightening. Families with young children might consider only the outdoor area which is beautiful at night.

My wife and I remember when the federal building in Oklahoma City was bombed, and the memorial really took us back to the sad events of that day. We only had time to look at the free outdoor memorial, but I sure the memorial inside the adjacent building is also worthwhile. We listened to a tour guide under the "Survivor... More

I definitely wanted to see the memorial and museum when I found out I was spending a long weekend in OKC. The memorial, by day and night is moving. The cell phone tour is informative and just walking around the area you can feel the importance of the place and things that people did there. Unfortunately the museum was closed... More

Deeply moving, a piece of American history. My brother was two blocks away. If you can tour the Memorial with someone who was in OKC at the time the bomb exploded, it will add greatly to your experience.

Very very sad to have to have a memorial. It just pushes you back when you see it. The devastation that one man caused so many. Reminding you of how lucky you are and to remember to help others.

Unfortunately, we picked the only weekend that the museum was closed as part of their big renovation, but were still able to tour the memorial itself. It's incredible what they have done here. From the Survivor Tree to the symbolic "Gates of Time" and the reflecting pool where 5th Street once allowed McVeigh to park his truck bomb to the... More
