The design of this Memorial is beautifully laid out with each unique bench with the names of each person carvered on them and a small little water streams under each. A place of quiteness and peace.

Very glad I braved the walk to get to this memorial. Very well thought out and extremely well planned. Being able to hear information on my phone was a great help to knowing why the memorial was planned the way it was. My only complaint...More
We went here by accident really - we got to the pentagon early for our tour as we had been told to get there early. however we were too early and the security told us about the memorial on the opposite side of the building....More
I am writing this on Veterans'Day, and as we all appreciate those who gave their lives so that we could live, it is also worth remembering those who gave their lives without knowing why they were doing it. This is a very moving site as...More
We went to see the memorial in the evening and it is breathtaking, somber, moving yet beautiful. Much thought was put into each detail - the setup, the names, water and light....
Take your time, walk around, read the explanations, the names ...
We found it is difficult to find with google maps. If you go toward Pentagon South Parking lot just off Army-Navy drive you actually just park in the back there and walk up the sidewalk, along the construction. Then you can see the memorial.
It's a 10mins walk from the Pentagon metro station. It's a nice memorial, but there is a lack of any additional information which for some people could be useful to give more background than just a list of victim names.

The easiest way is to get onto the Metro (if I remember correctly, there’s a blue line right there at that hotel) and get off at the Pentagon stop. From there, exit the station and follow the signs around the Pentagon building to the memorial. The memorial is on the opposite side of the building from the WMATA Metro station. It’s a short walk from the train and well worth it. It’s also a fairly short ride from the Crystal City stop to the Pentagon stop.

Yes, but it's not well-marked. There is a sidewalk from behind the Cemetery's service complex (southeast corner of the Cemetery) that goes along Columbia Pike and then under Washington Blvd into the entrance area for the Pentagon Memorial. It's along busy roads, so be careful.
