“The first thing we saw during our stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Fabulous memorial from the events of 9/11 at the Pentagon. Loved the design and the memorial of all of the victims. It was a very heartfelt memorial.

“Different type of Memorial”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

than the rest throughout Washington DC area for the 184 people lost September 11, 2001. No photo signs were confusing in the parking lot as you walk from the east side (subway or bus stations) to the west side of the Pentagon. I think photos are allowed in the memorial area, just not the parking lot?

“Simple and beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

The memorial is arranged by the date that each victim was born, which allows one to visualize the impact of the loss of the 184 people who died here. The memorial benches with the still water underneath are a simple and fitting tribute to those who perished on this site.

“Pretty awesome and eery at the same time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

The only downside is that you have to walk all the way around the building (from the subway) to get to the memorial. It was cool and windy and would have been a much shorter walk but all of the surrounding parking lot's and sidewalks, close to the building, are blocked form general public use!

“Tribute to Fallen Heros”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

This memorial to the 184 persons who died on September 11, 2001 is excellent. Each person that was either on Flight 77 or in the Pentagon and died that day is immortalized. Depending on their birth year, there is a memorial bench placed in lines across the plaza. There are also 85 trees planted that in time will shade the memorial site. Look for the small unmarked box on the south side that contains brochures on the memorial and its significance.
