Museum
“The Oklahoma City National Memorial is memory of the people who died in the bombing of the federal building. It is very peaceful, I like to visit at night and see all the chairs lite or early on a Sunday morning and just walk through. Worth a visit, the bombing has resurrected several neighborhoods in the downtown area, gave it purpose again.”
