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.

  • Tranquility and beauty. This is what remains after an event that changed Oklahoma City, and the United States, forever.
