Oklahoma City National Memorial

Oklahoma City National Memorial honors the victims, survivors, rescuers, and all who were changed forever on April 19, 1995. The outdoor Symbolic Memorial, which consists of the following segments on 3.3 acres, can be visited:

The Gates of Time: Monumental twin gates frame the moment of destruction - 9:02 - and mark the formal entrances to the Memorial.

Reflecting Pool: Gently flowing water soothing wounds with calming sounds and providing a peaceful setting for quiet thoughts.

Children's Area: A wall of hand-painted tiles painted by children sent to Oklahoma City in 1995 and a series of chalkboards creates an opportunity for children to share their feelings.

Rescuers' Orchard: A grove of fruit and flowering trees surrounds and protects the Survivor's Tree.

The "Survivor Tree:" A 90 year old American Elm bears witness to the violence of April 19 and now stands as a profound symbol of human resilience.

The Memorial Fence: Originally installed to protect the sacred site, the Memorial Fence continues to display items left by visitors, which are dedicated to all involved.

The National Memorial Museum and the National Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism are the other two components.
