What a terrific memorial to all those who perished on 9/11. Such thought and creative went into the memorial design. Take some time and walk through to pay respect to those lives that were lost. Pictures are allowed at the memorial but it just felt 'wrong' for me so I didn't take any but other travelers may want to know... More

If you are a family travelling by car, you will not be able to get in to see this memorial which is very disappointing. We tried every which way. In the end a "pentagon cop" started following our car around, I guess because we looked suspicious. Too bad we had to miss it

Back in 2001 when I watched the attacks unfold on on TV, it was difficult to comprehend the reality of what happened. At the time, I was in the military and I didn't want to dwell on the horror and loss but simply to do my part to make sure it didn't happen again. These many years later, I finally... More

There is a sign at the entrance with a phone number for an audio tour, use your cell phone and call it really makes a difference in understanding the design of the memorial and the symbolism used in the design. We were there in the day as well as at night. I think it is prettier at night. Very moving... More

It is quiet, thoughtful , dignified. I was there that terrible day in 2001, so much chaos and sorrow. It helped me to see the area transformed into a place for quiet reflection.

Really surprising memorial. Loved this one, really moving, a lot of symbolism and interesting features. Really want to see it at night. It was worth the walk and only took a short time.

Must see of the memorials. This is so well done, you do not want to miss it. You have to walk all the way down past the pentagon so follow the signs or ask for help. You can take pictures inside the memorial just not outside in case you are confused by the signs

It is a place to respect and think why the memorial is there, as part of the modern history. I visited during a working day, and you get the opportunity to see the surrounds of one of the largest office in the world.

A lot of information we can obtain by visiting this place such as the fact on how it happens, how they commemorate the ones who died in the 9/11 incident. It is very touching and somehow made me want to cry.

I wish there would have been more information about this memorial to help explain the events and interpret the meaning. I visited on a Saturday morning so perhaps there is more during the week. It's hard to imagine that 25,000 people are employed at the Pentagon. It brought back a lot of 911 memories. A day that changed America forever...... More
