OKC National Memorial to Complete Renovations in December

OKLAHOMA CITY – New artifacts, evidence, interactive elements and oral testimonies will open to the public in December at the Oklahoma City National Memorial. The year-long upgrades will engage and educate visitors more on the tragic bombing that killed 168 people.

“Our story hasn’t changed,” said Kari Watkins, executive director of the OKC National Memorial and Museum. “What we are changing is the way we tell the story with new technology, much of it aimed at reaching our younger visitors. Many of these students weren’t even born yet when the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building was bombed almost 20 years ago.”

New interactive stations take groups along the FBI trail of evidence. Guests can also look over the outdoor Memorial grounds and downtown Oklahoma City skyline on the new 40-foot glass balcony connecting the museum with the Memorial grounds.

Stories from those who lost family members, those who survived and rescue workers bring a personal touch to the experience.
