They did a wonderful job with this memorial. The space is beautiful and calming in the middle of the city. It was very moving.

Very solemn ground. Much more majestic than I expected. Just as awestruck with this as the twin towers in NYC. It touches the sole, especially seeing the front row of chairs from children that died in the daycare center. A shallow but huge reflecting pond gave an even deeper meaning. The only item left standing where the building used to... More

We didn't go into the museum, but just walked the hallowed grounds. It was so tasteful and simple. We wish we had our children with us... they have a very nice area for children to use sidewalk chalk as a memorial for those children whose lives were lost. The whole area was very touching, especially the empty chair garden. Would... More

I never knew how big the building that was blown up truly was until I walked the memorial-it was shocking the damage. The chairs for those that died , and the placement used was truly impressive-to see it at night when they were lit was even more so. The children that were there at daycare- I did not even know...

We have become too good at designing memorials for horrible events. The Oklahoma City memorial sets a high standard. The space encourages reflection and contemplation, while making sure that we don't forget the lessons of the past and its victims. We did not visit the adjoining museum, but just a half-hour stop at the memorial site, viewing the reflecting pond,... More

This is an absolutely amazing place to visit. They have taken a horrible tragedy and of course it is sad and touches your heart, but what is truly amazing is that instead of being so negative and depressing, they have focused on how the world poured their hearts out to the people of oklahoma, with a whole room covered with...

It's a visceral experience. You can feel the sadness of the violent past, and also the peace and serenity of the memorial. It's a reminder that violence can strike anywhere, anytime, and some of it is homegrown. It is also a monument to the resilience of the human spirit. I highly recommend that you visit when in Oklahoma City.
