If you want to visit the Pentagon, you need to make plans early, it takes weeks to get your "approval." But, it's free. So, take the Metro to the Pentagon stop, and when you come up the escalator, it's right there. Be early enough that...More
I am so sorry but I cannot give more than 1 as I would hope that if any admin personnel read these reviews they would take note of the comments by others and myself and please take a common sense approach to security screening at...More
I requested a tour via the Pentagon website a month in advance. The tour timing can accommodate 60 people, but it will be broken down into smaller groups for the tour. I arrived exactly 60 minutes before the start of my tour and was impolitely...More

An interesting glimpse behind the massive US military machine. Unfortunately the visit was marred by unnecessary aggressive and obnoxious security at the entry screening. The contrast with the excellent uniformed service guides for the tour was jarring. Good security is vital at such institutions but...More

Nice to see how it looks inside. Tour itself is free. You walk about 45 minutes into the pentagon. And get to the center. A lot of information is told, while walking through the pentagon. You also go to the 9/11 chapel. And the place...More
We arrived early for our tour of the Pentagon and enjoyed walking through the halls and listening to our tour guide. There are lovely quilts, pictures, etc. along the walls, but for the most part you are merely walking through the corridors and listening. They...More
No, there are no lockers. You can carry smaill purses (they will be searched on arrival) - details of prohibited items are on the tour page website. I notice the answer above states you cannot tour the building - this is... More
No, there are no lockers. You can carry smaill purses (they will be searched on arrival) - details of prohibited items are on the tour page website. I notice the answer above states you cannot tour the building - this is nonsense, you apply for a tour of the building through the Pentagon website.
