Upgrades Planned At Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum
The Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum has unveiled plans for a new $7 million project that will upgrade the museum and offer more insights for visitors into the deadly attack.
The plans were unveiled during a symbolic wall-breaking ceremony at the museum on Wednesday. The memorial honors the 168 people who died in the 1995 bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building.
The five-phase project is expected to be completed in November. It will include moving and expanding the Gallery of Honor to include videos from family members of each of the victims.
An overlook balcony will give visitors a new view of the memorial, while investigation evidence will also be displayed.
Executive Director Kari Watkins says the upgrades will keep a new generation interested in the memorial.
