I had not heard of this memorial. The design was so great and what a perfect way to honor those who lost their lives on 9-11-01 when the Pentagon was hit.

A memorial to the people who lost there lives to the hate on 911 from the pentagon and aircraft. Respectful to the fallen. Just be careful takeoff photos of the pentagon because you are not allowed to.

This was a sobering memorial to visit. However, it was a fitting tribute to those who fell on that fateful day on 9/11/01. Each of the 184 granite-covered benches is engraved with a victim's name to honour those killed on 9/11's Flight 77 as well...More

It is open when the lights are on. It might even be open 24 hours. There is a Metro stop nearby but there is also public parking.

If you go after 6:00, you can probably park in the lot at the tunnel entrance.
