Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building Memorial- Oklahoma City

The Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum was created to honor those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever by the April 19, 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.

Gates of Time
The monumental twin gates frame the moment of destruction 9:02 a.m. and mark the formal entrances to the Memorial. The East Gate represents 9:01 a.m. on April 19, and the innocence of the city before the attack. The West Gate represents 9:03 a.m., the moment the city changed forever.

Reflecting Pool
The pool occupies what was once N.W. Fifth Street.

Field of Empty Chairs
The 168 chairs represent the lives taken on April 19, 1995. They stand in nine rows to represent each floor of the building, and each chair bears the name of someone killed on that floor. Nineteen smaller chairs stand for the children. The field is located on the footprint of the Murrah Building.

The Survivor Tree
The Survivor Tree, an American Elm, bore witness to the violence of April 19, 1995, and withstood the full force of the attack.

The Oklahoma City National Memorial Museum is an interactive learning museum that occupies the west end of the former Journal Record Building. Built in 1923, this building withstood the April 19, 1995, bombing and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
