My favorite parts were the tape recording of the actual explosion, the room telling how Tim McVeigh was caught and the whole investigation. The room with pictures of all the victims, also was moving. There are many rooms, it's like a maze, don't miss anything. It would be wise to read the pamphlet that they give you at the beginning so you know how the chairs are arranged outside. There are also things outside that we missed, because we didn't read the pamphlet until later.

This was an emotional and powerful museum. The memorial outside is beautifully done showing each person who lost their life that day. I reccomend touring the museum which has so much information. Leave enough time at least 1 1/2 - 2 hours to take it all in. It is a heart wrenching museum that also showed how people pulled together in the middle of that tragedy.

We can see why the Memorial is the number one activity in Oklahoma City. The tour is sobering to say the least. They do a fantastic job of personalizing each individual who lost their life in the tragedy and telling the stories of the survivors. The details, the artifacts and the timeline transport visitors back to that dreadful day. They also focus on the resilience of the city and offer a challenge that this can never happen again. This is a must see when visiting Oklahoma City!

How can you not visit this memorial???? What a terrible experience for the residents and workers. The museum is a tribute to all those that survived and those that didn't . The timeline is excellent. The city came together. Presentations are really well done and the displays are somewhat interactive. Very important to remember this tragedy, and we hope this never can happen again.

We visited the museum the first day we were in OKC> The museum was well designed and executed. For those who were not familiar with the events and aftermath of that terrible day, you will be fully educated by the end of your visit. The photos of the victims and their stories were heartbreaking. The memorial garden outside was very peaceful and well done.

I could have easily spent a 1/2 day here looking at all the footage of that tragic day. The museum is so well done.

A very well done museum and memorial to those who died in the bombing of the Federal Building as well as to the survivors. Unfortunately we arrived only about an hour and a half before closing. To do this museum justice plan on two plus hours in the museum. So touching and done in such a thoughtful and moving manner. The stories of the survivors, what they witnessed and what they felt on that eventful day were heartfelt. The memorial outside the building from the East and West Gates to the Reflecting Pool and the Field of Chairs truly touched the heart. Terrorism can be home grown and the Oklahoma City National Museum and Memorial certainly attests to that. If you are able to visit this site I would highly recommend it.

we visited the OKC National Memorial Museum, OKC Firefighters Museum, The Cowboys Western Museum, and the Oklahoma Railroad Museum.
The National Memorial Museum is heartbreaking. Everyone should go to see the tragic destruction of 168 lives and the Amazing strength of the OKLAHOMA CITY SPIRIT.

From start to finish this was an incredible experience, one that will push your emotions while doing a great honor to the victims of that horrible day. Beginning with background of the day followed by the Water Resources Board hearing, where you hear the actual bombing, you will get a small sense of what took place. The stories are gut wrenching, particularly the day care center on the 2nd floor, but there are many uplifting stories of people coming together to help one another both that day and in the days ahead. Take the time to explore the Memorial after you've been through the Museum. From the reflecting pool where there was once a street, to the Field of Empty Chairs (where the Murrah building stood) that honors the victims, it is essential part of the visit. A special thank you to Daniel McKee, who spent some time answering our questions and providing insight we were not aware of. Of the many museums we have visited, I would put this at the top along with the 9/11 Memorial and Museum in NYC and the Civil Rights Museum in Memphis.
