“Must go!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

We almost didn't go because it happened so long ago, 1995, but boy are we glad we went! Very powerful memorial. National park. Took us two hours to complete the tour. We could have spent three hours if we read all the plaques. Our teen was very impressed with the investigation and how they solved the crime. We were struck by the damage caused with one bomb..the rescue efforts..the aftermath..imagine nuclear bombs?!?

“Moving”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Visited at night. Chairs lighted, reflecting pool black...incredibly moving. Very well done! If we had time, would have gone back during the day and toured the museum. But the night experience was terrific.

“Everyone needs to see this”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Wow. Some of the things you see here will leave you very emotional and are hard to see, but it is something that everyone should see. It really puts faces and lives with the tragedy and makes you realize how terrible this was. But you do leave with hope, as other reviewers have said.

“Extremely intense and emotional....”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Plan on experiencing every emotion from fear and rage, to anguish and hope as you work your way through this stunning remembrance of one of the US's darkest days. This memorial is not only testament to those who lost their lives on April 19, 1995, but to those who survived and perservered to vigourously campaign and work to build this masterpiece. OKC has some of the kindest warm-hearted people I have ever met, and I'm grateful that they had the strength and grace to not only move forward but to do so with courage and heart.
