This memorial brings the visitor in touch with both the magnitude and the individual impact of the event. Tucked behind the Pentagon but easy to access. Be sure to make this a stop on your trip to DC - you can make a brief stop or walk each row and reflect for an afternoon.

First, you must either take a tour bus or the Metro to the Pentagon as there is absolutely no public parking. We rode the Metro, and walked about ten minutes to the memorial. It was very interesting to see, and we were surprised to see only two or three other people there. It is well maintained, and we spent anout... More

This memorial was build and dedicated to those who died in the 911 attach at the Pentagon. You can still feel the emotion from that day and the emotions can be almost overwhelming. I would highly recommend this visit.

It's a beautiful place with lots of details and beauties!! We can feel the sadness of what happened there. It's very sad to see so many names of different ages that were gone in this brutal attach.

My family and I visited during our tour of the Pentagon and to be honest at first I wasn't sure what to think. After learning more about the memorial I was truly touched at the thoughtfulness and love that went into it. 1 bench for each life taken and is done as a timeline by age. Each bench is engraved...

Highly recommend a visit if you are in the area. It is outside the fence line so it is very easy to walk around and see it. Very sad to see the birth years of some of the victims on the plane.

When we was there, everything was almost cover and hidden by the snow. But anyway it looks great. You should definitely go here if you are in Washington DC

It can't be said enough, but do read up on everything before you travel to our nation's capital. Each bench represents each victim, and they are in rows by their birth years. And, families are designated by a plaque placed on each bench with names on it. There is a small, lighted reflection pool under each bench, and at night--it... More

Not really worth the visit unless you are at the Pentagon for some other reason or if you have some special connection with 9/11 at the Pentagon.

Done very well to salute those we lost on September 11th. It will be nicer when it's warmer. Recommend doing this after the Pentagon tour.
