We just set our GPS for the memorial and was nervous when we saw the security of the Pentagon, but if you follow the signs, you'll find free parking at the memorial. The memorial combines the victims of the Pentagon and of flight 93, that crashed in Shanksville. There is a recorded audio tour you can listen to on your... More

This memorial looks odd, but when you start walking through and looking at the names, it becomes simply, beautiful, and meaningful to see the track the plane took to hit the Pentegon.

The memorial itself was just outside the pentagon, however we wanted to get in the building (there is a part fopr visitors) but we never found the way in. The memorial was quiet and simple nothing exciting.

This memorial is a tragic reminder of our nation's history. You get chills visiting there thinking of the poor folks on the plane and in the pentagon who were lost in this tragic event. A solemn reminder to never forget.

At first glance when I arrived, this looked a little underwhelming. As I walked through the space I liked it more and more. I am puzzled by those reviewers who obviously "didn't get it." Perhaps they have little imagination. I think the design is very elegant and it is a nice place of reflection. It was a beautiful day when... More

The memorial itself is simple but special in its own way. I spent a minute of silence to pay tribute to brave heroes and victims who sacrificed themselves. The walk from the Metro is longer than expected, but at least there is Pentagon building itself on the right accompanying me. Remember never take any photograph because there are people constantly...

It was a very emotional experience and I am glad I went. It is a long walk, so anyone with difficulty walking long distances needs to be aware.

I've never seen a memorial done so thoughtfully with so much symbolism. The visit truly brought the victims to life, and one felt touched, sorrow, and connection with the event. Powerful for both early adolescents and adults.

This is one of the true memorials honoring those who died on 9-11. The artistry is fantastic and will leave you in awe of the artist.
