About the tour

The April 19, 1995, bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, was one of the first acts of domestic terrorism on American soil. At least 168 people, including men, women and children, were killed when a truck, filled with ammonium nitrate, exploded in front of the building during a busy work day. No one thought that something like this could ever happen here--smack dab in the middle of America. The devastation was felt around the world. However, this tragedy fueled the Oklahoma Spirit that continues today. It also led to many security enhancements throughout the nation. Join Cindy as she takes you to see this unique monument in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City. Hear her own story of living through this difficult time in Oklahoma. Learn about 9:02--the minute that changed everything. Glimpse the Survivor Tree and the Remembrance Fence. We hope you enjoy seeing this National Memorial and learning about how this tragic event changed and shaped America for forever.

This was an extremely moving tour. So special to see and hear about the monuments to those that died on that horrific day but more importantly, what those monuments mean to those left behind and the residents of Oklahoma City and how the community healed. 😥💕

What an emotional and thought-provoking tour through a memorial that never should have happened. Seeing the area of where the building once stood and the memories that resurfaces when you hear of it makes you relive that tragic day. Although I live in Arizona, I can feel for those who suffered loss that day. Cindy did a wonderful job to show us the whole site and give us detailed information of what transpired that day; how it affected the locals including herself. Will look for other tours of Cindy.

Unfortunately, I departed the tour early. Even though I live in the USA, I have never traveled to Oklahoma, so I am looking forward to my next opportunity to rejoin.
