There is a phone number you can dial for an audio tour but phone. A "bench" for every casualty. Those facing Pentagon were on the plane; those facing away were a n Pentagon. Well done!

The memorial was done well and you're allowed to take photos of it (Pentagon is otherwise strictly no photos zone). The benches with water underneath them have each victim's name engraved. Reach the memorial by taking the subway to Pentagon Station or park your car at Macy's and walk through the tunnel.

I was so impressed with this memorial. It is extremely somber to visit. I highly recommend doing the audio tour to completely understand all of the significant symbolism in the memorial. Once you finish this memorial walk up to the Air Force memorial, it is breathtaking.

Incredible design which personalizes each individual victim. Stark when viewed in its totality on a cold windy winter day, but up close each bench is a powerful and subtle statement. Each element prompts taking the time to reflect on this unique memorial. Despite the small subtle signs in the vast parking lots directing you to the site, you are on... More

Very Serene place the lights shining underneath the airplane wings at night give it a peaceful look. So sad to notice that some of them were whole families killed because of terrorism

We did a drive by during the day but stopped for a visit at night. It is beautiful to see the lights from the water under the benches at night, very pretty and peaceful.
