For most Americans today, terror first came in the instant on April 19, 1995, when a truck bomb exploded in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, killing 168 people and injuring hundreds more. THE ENEMY WITHIN: Terror in America –1776 to Today, on display at the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, February 19 – August 6, 2006, shows visitors that since the founding of this nation, we have been under attack from forces within.
The journey through this powerful exhibit is as real as history gets. Visitors explore the over 230 years of hatred and terror this country has encountered on its own soil. They will learn about attempts at revolution, sabotage, radicalism, hate and anarchy, and will emerge with pride in a nation that has stood her ground and proven time and time again she will not be defeated.
The Enemy Within reveals nine major events and periods in U.S. history when Americans were threatened by enemies within its borders. The exhibit brings these stories to life with historic photographs, themed environments, interactive displays, film, artifacts and video.
Admission to this special exhibit is free with general Memorial Museum admission. Admission to the Memorial Museum is $8 for adults, $7 for seniors and $6 for students. Memorial Museum hours are Monday – Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Ticket sales end daily at 5 p.m.
The Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum was created to honor “those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever” by the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. The Memorial and Museum are dedicated to educating visitors about the impact of violence, informing about events surrounding the bombing, and inspiring hope and healing through lessons learned by those affected.
