      Where the Murrah Federal Building once stood, a new park, affiliated with the National Park Service, now serves as a somber memorial to the 1995 bombing that killed 168 people. Each of the victims is represented by a stylistically sculptured chair, arranged in rows according to the floor of the building on which he or she died. But the memorial goes beyond grief to education, particularly with the addition of the adjacent museum, which not only exhibits memorabilia from the blast itself, but hosts programs to inform the public (especially children) about the roots of violence and the lessons learned from this tragedy.

      If you go:
      The symbolic outdoor memorial is open all the time, and there is no admission. The museum is open every day until 6:00 p.m., and there is an admission charge.
