“AMAZING!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

THis place will put life into perspective for you. It will make you cry even after almost 20 years. Everytime I go and see the little chairs that represent the children that died in the blast brings me to tears.

“Very Moving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

This was a very humbling experience. We were moved from the moment we arrived. Seeing the 168 empty chairs and the Jesus Wept statue were awesome. My favorite thing was the children's wall. Everyone should see this part of our country's history.

“Every American should see this!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

simply beautiful what they did at this Memorial.. The Architects and others really thought this through.. Please pay your respects as true Americans should!!
"Tips"
Take time to listen to the Park Ranger.. They give about a 20 minute speach about everything in order of what happened....
Gi to the Museum..(dose not open until 12 on Sundays)
If you dont listen tobthe Ranger..look at the outside of Museum building.. You can see how distructive it was.. And if you can.. Look at photos before bombing.. Then you can see all the missing buildings near by...

“Powerful Tribute”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

The Memorial and museum were at the same time both sad and honoring. It was a moving tribute to the victims of the bombing while remembering to preserve the history of the event. Plan on spending at least three hours at the minimum.

“Wow!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

It was a really moving memorial. There was lots of symbolism throughout the whole memorial. You dont feel like talking, just walk the grounds to remember how many lost their lives and where you were the day the bomb went off.

The Survivor Tree witnessed the bomb blast that day and is still alive.
