This our visit to Oklahoma City and the memorial was first on our list. I must confess that unlike my husband, I only remembered the basic details behind this tragedy. Well not anymore. The National Park service and Dept of the Interior did a wonderful job in keeping with the wishes of the survivors and victims' families in their vision of this memorial. The museum is filled with artifacts and details many aspects of the tragic day and months afterward. There were many times where I was moved to tears. Outside the museum, where the Murrah building once stood is beautiful, symbolic and peaceful. Well done.

It was a fine Museum. It is sad that we have a need for this kind of museum.I feel there are a lot of dangerously ill and there is a need to put more of these people under care.

What a memorial to so many people! Excellent! It starts you out on tour as the beginning of April 19, 1995, just like any other day and progresses thru the whole day as it was back then. When you hear the only audio of the bombing that was found, it is so chilling! Outside, where the bldg. once stood, is an amazing tribute to the fallen. It is the exact polar opposite of what the day was then...calmness, beauty, life. The chairs, the chairs, and more chairs were so sad to see, but it was a nice way to honor the victims! I had tears many times thru this memorial.

As a responder to the bombing I found it “A place of renewal and healing”. They have done a great job showing the whole story.
