While the memorial is about a 1/2 mile walk from the Metro, it is worth it to see a fitting tribute to those lost on 9/11/01. It is unique in its design and overwhelming. The most surreal memory I have is seeing the area of the Pentagon that was rebuilt as a result of the damage made by the plane... More

What a well thought out and creative memorial. We loved learning about all that went into planning and creating this memorial which consists of 184 benches, one for each soul lost. Very interesting. We took the Metro and got off at the Pentagon stop but know that it is quite a walk to the actual memorial but well worth it.

We toured the Pentagon then went out to the memorial. Very powerful and sad. Good to know that when reading each name on the bench if you look up and see the Pentagon that is where they died. If you look up and see the sky they were on the plane. There is a reflecting pool beneath each bench.

How can someone write down the feelings that one can experience here? You will be overcome with plenty of emotions as one could expect. It was laid out as a lovely tribute to those who unknowingly lost their lives through something so inconceivable.... It was good to bring my children here and try to explain this senselessness. Beauty is here... More

If you can, see the Memorial at night. Very special. Sad how many people of all ages were lost that day.

This is a must see it's heart ❤ breaking yet beautiful. I didn't lose anyone personally but it still brought tears to my eyes. Please be respectful and don't allow your kids to splash in the little pools.

Wasn't sure what to expect when coming here. Loved the aspect of the moving water. They pay great tribute to the victims of the tragedy. Definitely worth coming to visit.

A very poignant visit, a definite visit if you are in Washington DC. We used the tube to get there, from the station it's a short walk round the Pentagon to the memorial site.

A pretty good walk from the metro station, but worth it. Memorial is beautiful and moving. No food service or facilities nearby unless you have access to the pentagon

It amazes me how every memorial in this area is so well done and how different the memorials are. This one is so unique and does such an amazing job of paying tribute to the victims of this tragedy.
