The Pentagon Tours program, under the purview of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs, hosts more than 100,000 visitors annually. The tour lasts for approximately 60 minutes and follows a route that is approximately one and one half miles in length. Each tour includes the mission of the Department of Defense and each of its branches of service, and visits numerous displays that highlight and depict significant moments in military history.

Public parking is not available at the Pentagon. Visitors may opt to park at the Fashion Centre Mall at Pentagon City. No shuttle service is provided to or from the Pentagon. The Pentagon is less than a five-minute walk from the mall and can be reached through a pedestrian tunnel. Once through the tunnel, look for signs to the Metro entrance.

Hours: All guided tours of the Pentagon are free and available by reservation only. Tours are conducted Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tours are not conducted on weekends or federal holidays.

Book a Tour: U.S. Residents can reserve a tour using the website or by contacting their Congressional and Senate Representative. The Congressional office staffs often submit requests for constituents. Tours can be arranged directly through the Pentagon Tour Office using an online reservations system.
