“In honor of the lost lives from the Federal building bombing ”

The Oklahoma City National Memorial is comprised of two distinct components that go hand in hand in educating about the senselessness of terrorism and violence.

The Outdoor Symbolic Memorial is a beautiful 3.3 acre site in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City. The Memorial has transformed the original site of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building and also encompasses what once was Fifth Street, the former Journal Record Newspaper Building and five other parcels of land that were located just to the north of the bombed building. Today, you will greeted by the Gates of Time, and learn the story through symbolic elements including a Field of Empty Chairs, A Reflecting Pool, the Survivor Tree, the Rescuers’ Orchard, the Survivor Wall, a Children’s Area and the fence that originally protected the crime scene which even today gathers objects of remembrance and hope.

The Memorial Museum is a 50,000 square foot, highly interactive Museum which tells the story of what happened on that beautiful spring morning in the capitol city of Oklahoma. You will walk through that morning and see the sights and hear the sounds of what the people in Oklahoma City and Oklahoma have worked to overcome. You will hear the sound of the bomb, hear from the investigators, the rescuers, survivors and from family members who lost loved ones. You will experience the Lessons Learned from the Oklahoma City bombing and leave knowing that the world holds far more good than bad. The Museum is a tribute that in no way diminishes the tragedy, but rather offers an inspiring contrast between the brutality of the evil and the tenderness of the response.

We were driving through OKC on a trip out west once when we decided to take a quick trip around downtown and stumbled upon this memorial. It is a beautiful memorial to such a tragic day in American history. A somber memorial, but seeing the Survivor Wall was an unexpected powerful moment in our road trip. Stuck with me for many miles after we left town.

Incredibly moving. Take a tour of the museum and leave you name and message to those who perished there.

"We come here to remember Those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever." I read this and realized I forgot how shocking this was when it happened. Great place!

Just our luck went and the museum was closed for renovations. Now we know how Clark Griswold felt at Wallyworld. The outside is very impressive. If going through Oklahoma City a must see and remember a terrible time in our history.

We went early Sunday morning. There were no crowds. The feeling is very tranquil and reflective. The memorial design and the lake were beautifully done. There were a lot of prime photo shots of the memorial. So sad, and some of the memorial chairs had balloons, flowers and stuffed animals. Definitely worth seeing.

Coming to OKC National Memorial is like going to church. You will want to be quiet and contemplate what happened and why the Memorial is there. It is beautiful and thoughtfully done. We went at night. The water reflects the gateways nicely. The chairs are lit up. You can still read the signs. The walking is very easy. I would suggest if you or yours were born before 1980, go to the Museum, too.

A very moving memorial reminding you of what is important in life. I loved the survivor tree. Left me in deep thought as I headed back out on my road trip to my next stop. I am glad I added this in my journey.
