This is such a beautiful and touching memorial. Very well done. All should visit and never forget the day our country was attacked and how we banded together as a country. Never forget those that died from the youngest (3 years old) to the oldest (71).

This memorializes an important part of our American history. The downloadable 30 minute audio tour makes the visit all the more moving and understandable. The four of us all felt this was a very important part of our visit to the DC area. Small children will not appreciate the importance of the place or the reverent atmosphere appropriate for the...

Memorial was put together beautifully. Lots of hidden significances. I would recommend listening to the free downloadable audio tour (20 minutes) either while you're there or before/ after your visit.

While I was in DC on business, I made it a point to visit the Pentagon Memorial. For anyone that was around during 9/11 and especially those that were in the military when this tragic event took place, this needs to be on your list of places to visit while in the DC area.

I am torn in writing this between a rating of three and four, but going with four based on the significance of this day and event in our lives as americans. Parking is a major issue if you don't have a handicap placard. The memorial itself is cool and well done. A good idea on how it was created and... More

Finding parking was difficult and no photos of the adjacent Pentagon were permitted, but the Pentagon Memorial itself brought tears to my eyes and was very tastefully constructed to memorialize the lives lost there on 9-11.

A very respectful tribute to those we tragically lost on September 11, 2001. Unfortunately people insist on taking pictures when they are specifically instructed not to do so.

This memorial lay just outside the Pentagon walls, where 184 souls were lost in the 9/11 tragedy at the Pentagon. These moving tranquil area is filled with trees and memorializes all those killed in the Pentagon and Aircraft. The memorial units are positioned facing into the Pentagon or away from the Pentagon depending on how the victims was located at... More

Somber, as it should be. Well designed. Plenty of free parking. Easy access on and off the Interstate or Columbia Pike.

This was a memorial I was very interested in seeing. The signs take you in & around the pentagon. There is a place for drop off but no place ton park.
