Well worth the visit, just be sure to pay attention to the signs around the Pentagon directing the traffic, not a place you want to make wrong turns!
If you are looking for something to do at night, and have energy left, please go to the Pentagon Memorial. We live near Washington, and the first time we visited, we went without reading anything about it ahead of time. It was dark, but there was enough light to walk around. Not knowing anything actually made the visit more powerful.... More
Look for a docent before entering the memorial. There is a flyer that is so helpful with information about the memorial.
In the shadow of the imposing Pentagon Building, the Pentagon Memorial is a tribute to the 184 souls lost in the terrorist attack there on September 11, 2001. The memorial's design is in no small way a meticulous attention to detail that is full of meaning and is a sobering reminder of all that was lost that day. Its worth... More
Very moving setting to reflect on the lives lost on 9/11. The section of the Pentagon building damaged that day is visible from the memorial. Handicapped drop off area is close by but parking is a bit of a walk. The Air Force memorial is nearby -spectacular when the lights come on in the evening. Good for families/adults.
I didn't really care for the bench look but after choosing to listen to the 12 min audio tour on my cell phone it became a little more meaningful. I liked the reflecting pool idea on each memorial that is lit up at night. It has to look amazing from the air (airplane). Security is very tight and picky. We... More
The area is obviously very security sensitive with signs about taking photos of the general Pentagon in place, but you can take photos at the memorial and wandering around the memorial area. You can see the different colour of the building where it was rebuilt following the attacks. When I was there a serviceman was giving a talk about the... More
Accessible via public transport, this is a fitting tribute to the victims of the Pentagon attack on 9/11 2001. It is like a memorial garden and is apparently just as beautiful to visit at night. I only saw it during the day. There is also a memorial inside the Pentagon which you can visit and pay your respects to also... More
First. No photos. Next, while our Army private tour guide was a personable fellow, there's only so much he can do. The tour of the facility is impressive, but ultimately it's just a big giant office building. You can't really stop along the way and see much. You can get the same information from a book or the internet. It's... More
The Pentagon tour will take you past the interior entrance to the memorial but won't spend much time there. It can be accessed from the outside by walking around the parking lot. It's a solemn experience, especially when you start looking at the the year the victims were born. It's quiet and reflective.
