Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum reviews
This is a must visit if you are in Oklahoma City. An emotional and moving memorial to those who died and for those who survived. more »
I remember the bombing but not all the details. This helped to give detail of the incident as well as how the city and its people responded. I would recommend to anyone going to Oklahoma City. 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.
