    Definitely check this out even if you're just visiting. I had 24 hours in OKC, and I'm so glad I made the museum a priority! (Pro tip: take your student ID for $12 admission!)

    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.

    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.

    Been here 5+ times
    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    "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.

    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.
  • Sandy W.
    Be sure to make time to hear one of the rangers tell the story behind the monument - fascinating, educational and entertaining.

    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

    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

    I had the opportunity to visit and reflect on the memorial. Next time I'll try to go to the museum. Very moving.

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

    This is the best thing in OKC, make sure you go inside the museum, it is done very well. Visit the grounds at sunset.

    The outdoor grounds need to be seen both by day and at night - both equally incredible. The museum is well worth a visit, but take a tissue. Read more
