The Pentagon Memorial is just beautiful. The designers put a lot of thought into the memorial. It was very moving and significant to us.

This is a well done memorial. It doesn't rise to the level of the Vietnam War or Korean War memorials (in my opinion), but is worth a visit.

Profound demonstration that freedom comes at a cost; 187 people died as the jet hit the symbol of America's military strength. Silver benches commemorate each life that ended that day; quiet water and stones are neatly arranged. A place pf solitude and reflection in an ever-busy city. Ask for directions around the Pentagon building and stay on the sidewalks--Pentagon police... More

I am thankful for the opportunity to stop by this hauntingly beautiful memorial and pay my respects to those who were lost. This memorial was so thoughtfully created.

Highly recommended. Try to book the Pentagon tour as well while you are in town. It was highly informative.

We were very much engaged by this excellent memorial of such tragedy. It was made all the more sobering by the fact that there were only around half a dozen other visitors here with us. No photos were allowed which also lets one absorb the mood without distraction.

The least I can do is to honor and pay my respects to those who paid so dearly on September 11. It is a peaceful and solemn place.

Great place to see. Definitely must be there and feel this climate. But be aware to go there from the right side and do not take the photo where it is forbidden.

A very moving tribute to those that died on 9/11/01. Park Service Staff not around or unavailable. Figured it out on our own. The Smartphone guide was very helpful, Not real easy to get to but worth the effort

The memorial is a moving place and is full of meaning in all aspects of the structure and park. Be sure to look up the site or read the material before you go. Everything from the direction the benches are placed, the rise and fall of the wall around it, the order of the placement of benches and even blocks... More
