Touring the Midtown District in Oklahoma City continues this week with a stop you must make while in the area. The Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum.
For remembrance you should take time to visit the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum located on 6th between Robinson and Harvey. Enter through the 9:01 gate on Robinson into the outdoor memorial. You can walk by the Field of Empty Chairs, the Survivor Tree, Rescuers Orchard and of course the fence and Reflecting Pool. There’s no charge to visit the outdoor memorial and it’s open 24 hours. If you are able, try to visit in the evening. After sunset the lit grounds are breathtaking. To learn more about the events of that day in April of 1995, you will want to take a self guided tour of the Memorial Museum. The museum is open until 6PM daily with tickets ranging in price from 10-12 dollars. You should allow at least an hour to tour the museum.
Next week I’ll let you know about a few cool places to live near Midtown including the Cottage District, SoSA, Mesta Park and Heritage Hills.
