I can't say much that hasn't been said but I gave this Five stars because it really should be on everyone's DC list of things to do; we must do our part to let the next generation never forget history.

The Pentagon Memorial is beautifully designed and very well maintained. Pleasant with white blooming crape myrtle trees and flowing water at each memorial. The audio tour is absolutely necessary, as there is very little written information anywhere in the memorial. Outdoors.

Beautiful tribute to those who lost their lives on that tragic day. Nice little garden with running water and names of all who perished on 9/11. You are allowed to take photos of the Pentagon from within the garden only.

Amazing, breath taking memorial. The benches are amazing with the names of all the people and reflection pool underneath. The way it was laid out by the year they were born was moving. A very nice tribute to all who lost their lives and will always be remembered.

A somber memorial for sure though I personally feel as though it fails to capture the true horror of what took place. Would have appreciated more history of the event and actions leading up to 9-11 to set the stage.

As I stood in the midst of this memorial I couldn't help but remember that day years ago and where I was at the moment I received word and saw the footage of the attack on the Pentagon. What a solemn and moving place this Memorial is. It leads you to pray for the souls of the men and women... More

A shade over a 10 minute walk from the Pentagon City metro station. If walking, most comfortable to walk thru the shopping mall in the pleasant air conditioning. There is very little written explanation there but you can phone in and get commentary that way. You can take pictures but be sure to point the camera away from the Pentagon... More
