Description

Features a remembrance program including the 168 seconds of silence and reading of the 168 names of those who were killed in the Oklahoma City bombing. The ceremony will be a ticketed event for family members, survivors and first responders only. Safety protocols will be enforced, which requires a mask and social distancing. Following the Remembrance Ceremony, the Memorial grounds will open to the public. Survivor Tree saplings will be given out in front of the Museum after the Remembrance Ceremony on a first-come, first-served basis.

Cox Communications will provide free admission to the Oklahoma City National Memorial Museum for all visitors on Monday, April 19. Following the Remembrance Ceremony, the museum will open at 10 a.m. and will remain open until 5 p.m. Guests can learn about the bombing and its aftermath with interactive touchscreens, videos, artifacts and compelling exhibits of firsthand accounts from that day.

Two new Museum exhibits will open on April 19. Remembering Through Art is a project commissioned by a Broken Arrow High School art teacher to connect students to the loss experienced on April 19, 1995. Each art student chose one person from the 168 who were killed, researched that person and created a work of art in their honor. These works of art illustrate empathy, compassion and celebrate 168 uniquely different lives.

 More Than Two Decades of Building. Together. reveals how Oklahoma City came together to rebuild and remember. Starting with a mission statement and sacred ground to memorialize, family members, survivors, first responders, designers and the community created a Memorial and Museum to tell the story of the senselessness of violence and share lessons learned.
