“Wow its big”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Didn't like being told that due to security measures, photos were not permitted.
Fascinating to see the many immaculately presented uniformed personnel.

“Saturday tour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Toured on a Saturday with our grandson who works there. Very impressive building but devoid of decoration until you get to the offices of the Heads of the Departments. Still very interesting to see.

“A blur, but very interesting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The tour was conducted so quickly you barely had any chance to read and observe all that was going on inside. The guides go a great job though!

“Historical and Largest Office Building In The World.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The Pentagon is an amazing building. Filled with military history, it's the heart of the Military Industrial Complex. Employees get around by golf card the corridors are so expansive.
