What a fitting memorial to those who died at the Pentagon on 9/11. I was in DC that day and could see the smoke rising from my office and on the drive home. It was a scary time. This memorial brings peace to that terror and honors the military and civilians who daily serve the US and defend our freedom.... More

I didn't know much about this memorial until we arrived. It is a beautiful and peaceful place where you can sit and observe, and remember those that passed on. Very nice.

So glad I was able to experience this memorial. I have been to the one in New York and was not sure I would ever be able to see this one. It is amazing and very beautiful way to remember those lost. Take the time to see this!

I have visited the Pentagon Memorial on several occasions and I always walk away with a profound appreciation for those who lost their lives. The security staff in the area do a great job of monitoring the area and are very friendly and approachable. It is a heartfelt tribute and is an emotional experience as well. I would highly recommend... More

We went on a Sunday. The only guide was a kind smiling Pentagon police officer who not only protected the site but was willing to answer questions like a tour guide. Bravo Officer J Helmick. The years at the edges are the birth years of those killed. The "wings" that point toward the building were victims on the plane. Those... More

This was a moving memorial that is well worth the walk to get there from the Metro station. Call the phone number at the entrance for the walking tour to get information about the memorial.

This is a beautiful memorial park to honor those that were killed on 9/11 inside the plane and in the Pentagon.

This was a great place to visit since it is a memorial for a time I have lived through. It brought back so many memories of that day and was a nice way to honor those from September 11th.

When you first see it is mundane but when you see what each bench means it becomes overly significant. I won't go in to detail about it. You just have to read and take in the overall design to get the picture. It's a must see in my opinion.
