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

I visited the Memorial while chaperoning 85 eighth grade students so the impact wasn't as great as it coul have been. That being said, visiting the Memorial brought back memories of that day in September when the world stopped Turing and life in the United States changed forever. If you have time while visiting our nation's Capitol, this is a... More

The 9/11 Memorial at The Pentagon is one place that will live with me forever. I was inspired by the way that the memorial had been designed, honouring each person who died at the site. Every person who was at the memorial at the same time as my wife and I were equally moved. The whole place is respectful, and... More

It does not have the piercing intensity of the WTC 9/11 memorial, nor the crowds, but its silence speaks a thousand words. I walked over one early morning and was glad that I did so. Very thoughtfully and systematically created (as some reviewers have outlined), the symbolical sobriety is touching.... I walked away paying my own silent tribute to those... More

I had some extra time so I visited the Pentagon Memorial and was more moved and impressed than I thought I would be. It is a very serene, touching memorial that truly lets you reflect on that terrible day thirteen years ago. There is a cell phone tour available, which I took advantage of and would suggest to you as... More

While walking to the memorial in the morning we met a colonel in the army and he told us about the memorial but he also told us to see it at night. We enjoyed it during the day but at night it is very eerie. There is a bench for everyone who died. Under the bench there is water and... More
