Since the National Museum of the Marine Corps’ dedication in 2006, the Museum has promoted and preserved the service of the brave men and women who have worn the Marine Corps uniform from 1775. It has served as our Nationís tribute to Marines Corps history, provided a revered gathering place for Marines and their families, and educated the public of the Corpsí contributions to our Country and world.
Experiential exhibits and treasured artifacts have engaged more than three million visitors in Marine Corps life, from boot camp to battlefield. The Museum’s galleries bring to life the first 200 years of Marine Corps history, spanning the Revolutionary War through the War in Vietnam.
Complete the Mission
The time has come for us to complete the National Museum of the Marine Corps, constructing galleries that tell the stories of Marines from 1975 through today.
These most recent generations of Marines will be reflected in two galleries. The first gallery will represent Beirut through Desert Shield/Desert Storm, recreating the campaigns carried out by Marines around the world. The second gallery will tell the story of the ongoing Global War on Terror. Its exhibits will showcase the Marine Corpsí enduring fight on complex battlefields.
Support our mission. Help us honor those who served in Beirut, Grenada, Panama, the Persian Gulf, Iraq and Afghanistan.
