You asked, we answer: What happened to the Pentagon flag from September 11, 2001?
Some of the most frequently asked questions we receive at the museum have to do with objects that were once on display but are no longer on view in the museum. The museum has approximately 3 million objects in its collections, and about 3% of the collection is on view at any one time. The museum also sometimes displays significant artifacts on loan from other museums and historical institutions. One such object that is no longer on display is the giant flag that hung at the Pentagon after the attacks of September 11, 2001.
