Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum
On the morning of 19 April 1995, the Alfred P. Murrah Federal
Building was bombed by Timothy McVeigh, killing 168 people. Today,
where the building once stood, the memorial and museum honour the
victims, survivors and rescue workers of the Oklahoma City Bombing.
The outdoor memorial features symbolic elements including a
reflecting pool and a field of empty chairs. It was designed to be
a haven for those seeking comfort and serenity. The museum
chronicles the terrorist attack and aims to teach others about the
impact and senselessness of violence.
