The wounds here are still fresh. Beautiful memorial to those lost on 9/11. The memorials for each individual helps you to know each of them. From children to high ranking military members.

As I walked through the area, I was extremely impressed with the design and layout of the Memorial and how each of the elements came together.

This place is just amazing to see at night with all of the "pools" under each bench lit up. It looks like waves. Listen to the tour announcements or you will not understand the significance of the design. Very emotional

This memorial, which is right along side The Pentagon, can be easily reached by the Metro Blue or Yellow lines. The station exit is a short walk walk alongside the The Pentagon to the memorial. We went on a Sunday morning and had the memorial to ourselves. Just security and The Pentagon police nearby. The memorial itself was very moving,... More

It seems like a lot of the memorial in the past 10 years have missed the mark. However this memorial I think is spot on. They did a great job of incorporating many elements in to one meaningful and solemn memorial. Make sure you go here to remember and never forget.

We arrived in Washington from the UK in the early afternoon and decided to take the short walk from our hotel when we had got settled. Arrived just as the sun was going down and I would recommend this as a time for others to visit. As the night draws in and the light levels change, the memorial takes on... More

Living in Old Town Alexandria, VA, I remember vividly opening the front door on September 12th and smelling the smoke that had drifted over from the Pentagon after this crash. So my visit to the memorial was long overdue. It is a beautiful tribute to the 184 people who lost their lives in this incident with their names inscribed on... More

Very sad - but the memorial is very beautiful! They had a lady there to help guide you, and give more information.

It is a very good thing to remember the past and not forget what we as a nation have been through, if you get a chance to take a guided tour it is very humbling to hear all the stories of what took place that day and never forget what happened.

This is very well done. A nice memorial of 9/11. It is a little difficult to get to by car. The Pentagon police will remind you of no parking. But it is worth it to visit this memorial.
