Free admission to Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum on 21st anniversary of bombing
OKLAHOMA CITY – On Tuesday, Oklahomans across the state will honor the innocent lives that were taken in a terror attack 21 years ago.
On April 19, 1995, 168 Oklahomans lost their lives when a bomb destroyed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.
After the building was demolished and the site was clear, the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum was created.
The museum features items from that infamous day, pictures of the victims and stories from family members, rescue workers and city leaders.
On Tuesday, Cox Communications will provide free admission to the museum for all visitors.
The Remembrance Ceremony, which begins at 8:45 a.m., the museum will open at 10 a.m. and will remain open until 6 p.m.
“Cox is proud to continue this annual tradition,” said Kristin Peck, vice president of public affairs. “We believe it is important on this special day of remembrance that all visitors to the Memorial be able to tour the Museum at no cost.”
