We come here to remember those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever. May all who leave here know the impact of violence. May this memorial offer comfort, strength, peace, hope and serenity.®

Museum Enhancements Progressing

The Museum enhancements continue to evolve. Construction of the Memorial Overlook is evident on the south end of the Museum, which will show visitors the Oklahoma City cityscape which serves as a living exhibit of the Oklahoma Standard. Completely re-imagined interactives and videos will complement new artifacts that will give visitors even more detail and insight into the Impact & Healing, Investigation & Justice, and Responsibility & Hope of the aftermath of the Oklahoma City bombing. Current visitors can see the progress through windows into the new areas, and will still be able to see every single panel of content in the Special Exhibit Gallery. More »
