Very moving! This is not to be missed at night.

We drove through OKC, arriving long after dark. My husband and I had been to the site and museum several years ago, and were impressed with the design and the content of the... read more

We drove through OKC, arriving long after dark. My husband and I had been to the site and museum several years ago, and were impressed with the design and the content of the museum. This trip we were with my cousin, and she had very much wanted to visit. This is one of the greatest night time memorials I have... More

Well worth the trip. It is very somber throughout the museum. It does a great job putting the visitors into the events of that terrible day.

Having first hand memories of that day, that moment, don't miss this, even if you're just passing through. Hopefully a volunteer will be there to share the story and the meaning of the order of the chairs. We will never forget.....

When I first moved to OKC, we went here the first weekend. It explains the history that many people so closely associate with Oklahoma City. It honors the people involved and has layers of symbolism that are interesting if you want to learn about the bombing. If you're interested in history, in moving to OKC, or just want to learn...

My husband moved here for his job, on my first visit we decided to check out the muesum. We wondered and read and reflected.. Heart wrenching yet beautiful done. We decided not to go inside so we could experience that with our youngest daughter (17) when she and I moved here after her graduation. We have not had the chance... More

I highly recommend visiting here. They did an outstanding job from the chair garden to everything inside of the museum. The cost is $12.00 per adult and worth every dime. You will leave with a better understanding of what happened that horrible day. May God bless the families of those lost and everyone involved that day. I still pray for... More

Words fail me in describing this Museum. The setting outside alone is moving with the empty chairs, reflecting pool and arches etched with the time on it indicating pre and post innocence as defined by the explosion. Inside tells great detail in the loss, the heroics and the randomness of survival. It was a shocker to see the escape vehicle... More

The museum and monument are a wonderful tribute to those who lost their lives, those who survived and those who were forever changed by the bombing that took place on 4/19/95 which resulted in 168 adults and children being killed unnecessarily. The outdoor memorial is very serene and a quiet place of reflection. It has a lot of symbolism built... More

I had chills through out the museum. It was incredibly moving and respectful of the events that took place. I just wish my students lived closer so I could take them. It brought me back to that day.

Having lived just 150 miles from OKC and having a child in the city (but not close) at a school funtion at the time of the bombing, this is a very personal place for me. It is difficult to walk through the exhibits and not have tears. The museum did a wonderful job compiling items and telling the story of... More
