The memorial (a National Park) and the museum (a non-profit) are both extraordinarily well done. This was a very dark time in our history. The community has done an outstanding job of capturing both the horror and the positives out of the bombing and it's aftermath. April 2015 will be the 20th anniversary of the bombing. It is amazing how... More

Outdoor is free, but definitely do the indoor part first. The museum is set up in such a way that it gives you a real feel of what happened. So much so, it caught me slightly off guard. It is set up to follow the tragedy, almost in a chronological order, all the way through until (at the end) today.... More

You understand immediately, the number of people this senseless act of terror affected. The Chairs and reflecting pool at dusk all lit up is amazing. Everyone should visit, In fact new players to the Thunder in Okc it is a requirement to understand this great city. The museum is amazing and lets you feel the way Okc felt that morning.

Many people don't realize America has had issues with homegrown terrorists dating back to the nineties and this is the proof. A good tribute to a blackeye in America's past.

It was so emotional. Every American should go to see it. The museum is absolutely beautiful. It is interactive and allows visitors to trace steps of the bombers from several days before and leading up to the bombing. There is video footage in several rooms from the time of the bombing.

The display was very impressive and beautiful. Very well thought out but be sure to read everything you can. We were pressed for time so didn't get the tour but I am sure it was well worth it.

I thought the entrance fee was a bit steep even with a $2.00 discount voucher but too be honest it was worth every cent. There is so much to see, understand and absorb that I was there for nearly four hours. Very moving experience.

You just have to see it. You have to experience what happened and you have to give yourself an hour or so to soak in the significance. Considering what is depicted, it is a wonderful representation. Teachers, parents, grand parents, first responders... just go see it.

WOW! Very emotional visit to the Memorial. Standing there at the end of the reflecting pool thinking about a building that once stood there and the 168 people that died in the bombing is overwhelming. The display of the 168 chairs and in particular the small chairs that signify the children that died is heart wrenching.
