OKC National Memorial and Museum, Oklahoma City: 47 reviews and 111 photos
This is a very moving memorial to those who were killed on April 19, 1995 by the bomb that Timothy McVeigh detonated in front of the Alfred Murrah Office Building. The building housed offices for several government agencies and a day care facility for their children. The bomb exploded at 9:02 a.m. and the outdoor memorial features two walls at the ends of a reflecting pool. The walls are labeled 9:01 and 9:03, enclosing the tragic moment. In the photo to the left you can see 168 chairs, one for each victim including smaller ones for the children. This is a very moving and poignantly beautiful memorial. I have not visited the museum yet, but my wife found it very well done and moving saying she had never seen one like it. It is probably the most must see of sights in the city.
