    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    It is really moving and touching. The tributes left to the victims from the citizen of OKC is amazing. Cross the street to the Catholic Church and see the statue of Christ.

    History will tell the story of a place whose people bonded together and how the whole world came to know it as "The Heartland". The memorial grounds that lay between the Gates of Time will move you. Read more

    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.

    Before the bombing the Survivor Tree served as the only shade in the parking lot. Now the tree, that is older than 80 years, serves as a rallying point and symbol for the memorial. Read more

    Whether you come here at night or during the day, it will have a pretty big impact. 168 empty chairs tends to do that.
