Reflect at the Oklahoma City National Memorial

Dedicated to the people who perished and those who survived the brutal bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19th 1995, no trip to OKC is complete without visiting this hallowed space. The Oklahoma City National Memorial stands in the wake of the building itself, accented with symbolic sculptures and a reflecting pool. Some of the most moving sights are the Survivor Tree and the Field of Empty Chairs.

Retrace the steps of April 19th 1995

The Memorial Museum is arranged in a way that walks visitors through the timeline of events on the day of the bombing, as well what happened in its wake. Beginning with the seeds of American terrorism, it concludes with a powerful message of hope.

The Survivor Tree

A proud, solitary American Elm stands at the north end of the memorial as a natural survivor of the attack and symbol of our national resilience.

FAQs

  • What is the Oklahoma City National Memorial?

    Housed on and around the site of the former Alfred P Murrah Federal Building, the memorial is designed for thoughtful reflection. Every aspect of its layout is symbolic, from the Gates of Time and Reflecting Pool, to the Survivor Wall of the original building and a modern embodiment of The Fence that surrounded the scene of disaster.
  • What are all the empty chairs for?

    The Field of Empty Chairs contains 168 chairs arranged in 9 rows to represent the people who perished on the day of the bombing, as well as the number of floors in the building. The names on each seat correlate with those killed on that floor, while the small chairs represent children.
