  • This museum is extremely touching and moving. These are hallowed grounds. You cannot visit here without being solemn. Very well worth the visit. If in Oklahoma City don't miss it.

  • Tranquility and beauty. This is what remains after an event that changed Oklahoma City, and the United States, forever. This memorial is the center of the city and the pride of those from Oklahoma. Thousands of people have been gathering here every year for the Memorial Marathon to show the country and the world the Oklahoma standard of community and integrity. Thank you to all the staff for your hard work and maintaining this place for everyone to enjoy.
  • A somber memorial for a tragic event. Artifacts from the bombing are displayed in a poignant manner. I recommend stopping here if you have an hour or two to spare.
  • Very great place to go, I definitely recommend any one who hasn't gone here to go bcuz it is very great history for everyone to know and it even moved me to tears watching the videos and testimonials. A sad day indeed. I was born even a few days after this happened so I never heard about it until I came to OK so it was great learning about all that.
  • Place that puts life into perspective. Makes you appreciate life and feel for the familes affected by this disaster. Memorial done with class and beauty. Also neat to see at night. No charge for outside memorial. Only charge is if you go into gift shop and ther is more pieces of the history inside. A must on every Americans bucket list.
  • This memorial is as respectful to the victims of this horrible crime as it is beautiful. I highly recommend stopping to visit if you're ever in the Oklahoma City area.
