I've been to the outdoor portion of the memorial several times. It's beutiful and peaceful. But it is sad. It took me a few visits before I was able to will myself into the museum portion of the memorial. I finally went in 2006. I'm glad I did. Even as I type this my eyes begin to well with tears. And I'm a grown man. The sense of sadness, helplessness and even anger are still there. But these are to be expected when the innocent die. The displays are heartwrenching at times but ultimately there is a sense of hope that even out of something so tragic and senseless God and reach down into this sinfull world and cause poeple to reach out and help those who need it most. This place is a must see.

The OKC National Memorial is a place that cannot be described or put into words exactly. It is a beautiful memorial to those that lost their lives on April 19, 1995. I think to me the best way to describe it is humbling. I would that every person could visit the memorial and pay their respects.

On April 19, 1995, a misguided and angry person stole the life of over one hundred individuals when he parked a truck rigged with explosives.
In the 10 years that it has taken to recover, that sight is now one of the most profound memorials in a city. There are still people who put momentos on a fence for the friends and loved ones that were lost. They range from keychains to teddy bears.
There are over 100 empty seats which serve as a reminder of the lives that were lost, as well as a reflection pool to remind us not to let it happen again.
This is a family site with a museum and gift shop. It is a living lesson that can easily be felt when you stand in the midst of what used to be a tragic site.

On the morning of April 19, 1995, Timothy McVeigh parked a rented Ryder truck with explosives in front of the complex and, at 9:02am, a massive explosion occurred which sheared the entire north side of the building, killing 168 people.
Following an investigation and recovery of victims' bodies, the surviving structure was demolished with explosives on May 23, 1995. The Water Resources Board and Athenian Building were heavily damaged and later destroyed. The site later became home to the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum.
Outdoor Symbolic Memorial
Designed by Butzer Design Partnership, this Memorial honors the victims, survivors, rescuers, and all who were changed forever on April 19. It encompasses the now-sacred soil where the Murrah Building once stood, capturing and preserving forever the place and events that changed the world.
This is one of the most moving memorials in the country. Visitors enter through gates inscribed with the hour and minute at the top. At night, this is a piercing reminder of what a mad man did to 168 innocent people. However, before they enter in they see pieces of fence with personal objects of those killed in the bombing. The objects range from stuffed animals to pictures with personal messages. The most heart wrenching are those objects of the children.
Visiting the outdoor symbolic memorial is free to the public. It is run by the National Parks Service, and opened 24 hours per day.
