Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum - Review

In April 19, 1995, Timothy McVeigh bombed the front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, killing 168 people. Five years later, a memorial was dedicated to the victim of the attack on that site, and in February 2001, the Memorial Museum opened. The features of the memorial, described below are incredibly moving sights. They are:

  • The Gates of Time: huge, bronze gates that mark the time of the tragedy
  • Reflecting Pool: though the pool's water flows from east to west, you can see a clear image of yourself in the water
  • Field of Empty Chairs: 168 chairs, with the names of the victims etched into them, in the open air, where the Murrah Building once stood.
  • Survivors' Wall: The only remnant of the Murrah building has the names of more than 600 survivors etched onto it.
  • The Survivor Tree: heavily damaged in the blast, this 100 year old American Elm put out leaves once again over a year after the event.
  • The Memorial Fence: a 10-foot tall chain link fence on which visitors leave mementos.
  • Rescuers' Orchard: Trees surrounding the survivor tree, representing the rescuers who came to help
  • Children's Area: 5000 tiles hand painted by children and sent. 

Also close by are the Heartland Chapel, and the And Jesus Wept statue, representing two churches that were also damaged in the blast. The museum is an interactive tour that takes you through the chronological story of the bombing, and years after it.

  • This was probably one of my favorite memorials ever. I am not a big museum fan, actually I try to avoid them at all costs. However, I really enjoyed myself. I like watching crime shows, and half of the memorial was about McVeigh's actions and court case. They had a lot of unique artifacts that was cool to watch and they had a room with all of the victims and some of their belongings. If you bring a student ID, it only costs $12, and if you check in, you get a free postcard. After the museum section, you need to go outside and look at the memorial outside. It was really well done. They have a parking lot next to the church and parking is only $5, which is really cheap in my experience with downtown parking.

  • This is the most beautiful place they could have made with the area they had left. It is peaceful and makes me sad ever time we go. It was a sad day for Oklahoma that we will never forget, but when we visit here it makes me feel at peace for the people we lost that day. The reflecting pool is awesome and the chairs get me in tears every time. I love the idea of the chairs for the families to have a place to come visit their loved ones. We took our younger kids there last weekend that weren't born yet when it happened and we wanted to teach them all about it. They loved it and was also in tears about what happened there. They are only 8, 5, 3, and 12. It is a part of Oklahoma history and we will never forget.

  • It was my second trip within a month to the Memorial. It is an incredible place to visit. I was able to experience both high school students and elementary students respond and react to this beautiful and moving memorial and museum. I can't say enough positive things about the place as a whole. My only concern with the second visit as a parent and not the teacher is with one of the employees. She seemed to rush the elementary students and complained to me when several wanted to sign the guest book. My own son did not get to sign it because she was pushing us along. I understand they sometimes have multiple groups and need to be on a schedule, but I was impressed that a group of 3rd graders wanted to take the time to personally sign the book. She was also critical of my son's teachers for wanting to bring 3rd grade students when Oklahoma history is their topic for their standards.

  • One of the most beautiful memorials I've been to (this includes the World Trade Center site and Pearl Harbor). I enjoyed every part of this memorial from the moment you walked in all the way to the other side of it. The chairs were a neat visual and I appreciated the video screen on the far end. The small details of the times on the two end pieces were nice and I loved how they kept as much of the building in the design. Highly recommend that everyone visit this once in their life!

  • This was not in our scheduled program but I'm glad I got to take my boys. The setting and ambiance of the place even had my boys very somber mood. The two times on both walls (9:01 and 9:03) are book ends to the time the actual tragedy occurred, 9:02. And the reflecting pool in between is a way for visitors to think about the tragedy. I'm glad this was made into a National Monument because this was a sacred place. We got to learn from the armed Security Guard. He was well versed with what occurred.
