Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum is a tribute to the victims, survivors, and first responders affected by the tragic bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995. Take a self-guided tour through the events of that day and learn more about terrorism and the legacy of this attack. You can listen to the only known recording of the bombing, watch news footage, and see belongings that were found among the rubble. Step outside to visit the memorials that honor the victims, some of which occupy the space where the building once stood. The Gates of Time display the time the bomb exploded, 9:02 a.m., and 136 empty chairs represent those who lost their lives. Their names are etched onto the chairs.

Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum reviews
This was a sobering thing to go see, but absolutely worth remembering the lost lives. The architect did an absolutely beautiful job of creating a serene and beautiful atmosphere that pays tribute more »
It’s is beautiful at sunset and just after dark. There is no cost to visit the memorial outside. We didn’t arrive in time to see the museum. more »
The workers (including security) were extremely nice. The museum was sort of like a guided maze. The only thing I didn't care for was that once you started there was no way out without going all the way through it and at one point you are locked in a room listening to a recording and the door doesn't open until it's over. But other wise it was Breath taking to be able to watch and see if he remains of something that happened when I was only 3 years old. I hope to be able to go back one day, either without my kids or when they are old enough to understand as well.
It was creepy when we went as light fog was rolling in and one of the time buildings had light reflecting off as if the Ghost of the building was there. But all the details, messages and explanations are breath taking. We dint go into the building part as it was closed, but the walks, Chair Garden and Reflection Pool were astounding. Definitely want to go back again.
