This Memorial was a haunting, reverent and informative place to sit and reflect. Each memorial bench has a running water fountain beneath the bench which sounds lovely and peaceful. The area is immaculate and well cared for. Parking is abundant and access is readily available for handicapped individuals if needed. Be sure to pick up the flyer at the entrance... More

This memorial to the people who lost their lives in the plane and in the Pentagon blew me away. It is beautiful, simple, elegant and my heart was breaking as I listened to the informative and touching audio tour. I'm not sure that many people bothered to call the number and listen to the 25 minute presentation. It was SO... More

Powerful and emotional memorial. Envisioning what happened here brings raw feelings and emotions. Taking a walk through memorial and reading names/dates of each person is surreal.

I came here on 9-11 2014 and words cannot explain the feeling you get as soonest you walk inside the Pentagon Memorial. There's a lot of traffic noise outside and as soonest you walk in it feels like a whole different city (keep in mind this is an outdoor open memorial) and there's absolutely no noise it feels like a...

Quite a walk from the metro but so worth it. Very touching memorial to those that lost their lives that day. Such a sad reminder of how America changed that day and all of our lives as well.

The memorial is well done for the senseless loss of lives. It is within walking distance of the subway.

This memorial is worth the extra effort to get to. Be sure to take your cell phone along and dial up the audio tour (it really is a must in order to get a full understanding of the positioning of the memorial benches and other important details). It was of particular interest to those traveling with us to go to... More

We visited NYC last summer and made sure we would see the Pentagon. It is a serene location and easy to see. We went on a Sunday evening and were able to park right in front. We didn't take a tour of the Pentagon because we needed to book that in advance. Definitely something to see when you have been... More
