Concept for the Visitor Education Center at the 9/11 Pentagon Memorial Approved
The Pentagon Memorial Fund, Inc. recently passed a critical milestone in the development of a Visitor Education Center at the site of the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial. The concept design by Fentress Architects was approved by the Commission of Fine Arts, which follows approval in July from the National Capital Planning Commission. The Visitor Education Center will be located within walking distance of the Pentagon Memorial and in close proximity to Arlington National Cemetery and the US Air Force Memorial.
"With these approvals, the PMF has reached a milestone that will allow us to take the next step in building a visitors' education center to tell the story of the terrorist attacks, the victims and responders, and the subsequent national and international," said Pentagon Memorial Fund Board Chairman & President Sean T. Connaughton. "This history must be preserved and accurately passed on to future American generations. We must never forget."
