The Memorial and Museum is dedicated to educating visitors about the impact of violence, informing about events surrounding the bombing, and inspiring hope and healing through lessons learned by those affected.
We come to remember those who killed, those who survived & those changed forever. May all who leave here know the impact of violence. May this memorial offer comfort, strength, peace, hope & serenity.
Take your time. Remember.
The museum has just installed new interactive exhibits, which do a great job of expanding on the story. If you've been before, come again to see what's new.
Very educational and moving. Worth the ticket price.
RIP my colleagues.
This is a must for out of towners.
Very good displays in museum!
Really well done
It's an amazing museum that takes you through the days events in a very unique way. Memorial is awe inspiring and a must see in Oklahoma.
"We see ourselves in this place-the face of someone changed forever by what happened here." The National Parks System FAQS page about the Memorial will help answer your questions about symbolism, etc.
Beautiful and humbling experience
Like an outdoor art museum. Prettiest thing in OKC. Felt sage walking alone at night.
A moving monument to a terrible event. If you go, go at around 2am. City is quiet, no traffic and the lit-up chairs pop out to your eye. Very emotional and great time for reflection.
This is a must-see experience.
Sobering, sad, eye opening, but a must-see. You could spend the whole day here. Don't miss the museum. They've done a beautiful job presenting, replicating many of the moments and history of the day.
Be sure to make time to hear one of the rangers tell the story behind the monument - fascinating, educational and entertaining.
Museum is free on the anniversary of the event.
The tour in the museum is one of the most jarring experiences of my life. I couldn't shake the images for a month. You MUST visit here. The grounds are both gorgeous and sobering.
Beware of the Memorial Parking lot, upper deck ($5), across the street will ruin the underside of your car.
Try to schedule extra time to check out the museum.
An absolutely beautiful commemoration to those lost and affected by the OKC Bombing. The perfect kind of place for reflection where you can educate yourself and feel the weight of the history.
Make sure you look at the big tree that survived the bombing. It's amazing to see

Visit at night time
Cool during the day, absolutely AMAZING at night!
Some years have passed since this tragedy. But it all comes flooding back at this place. My wife and I cried on the first visit. The grounds are truly haunting, day or night. Bring a good camera.
Whether you come here at night or during the day, it will have a pretty big impact. 168 empty chairs tends to do that.
A truly beautiful tribute to this tragic event.
Humbling. A beautiful tribute. Very moving. Take your time.
Go at sunset. Stay until its dark. I added a bunch of pictures so you can see the change.
Great place to go at night and reflect... The museum is touching
The consensus seems to be to come at night, but I came during the day, and I highly recommend it. This is an absolutely beautiful memorial, and if you're nearby you must come visit it. The Field of
Is such a peaceful place. I went there in 2006. I was an exchange foreign student and was living in Seminole by that year.
Make sure to see it at night, and if you can, arrange for a local resident who was around in '95 to show you around, adds a whole new level to the experience.
Sobering experience. One you should not miss if you have the opportunity.
You'll remember it always!
This is the best thing in OKC, make sure you go inside the museum, it is done very well. Visit the grounds at sunset.
Give yourself at least 2 hours here.
Visiting here on my way through, was a moving and surreal experience. They will always be remembered.
Saw this in the very early morning just as the sun was starting to shine, breathtaking!!!
A somber, quiet place to reflect...
