Since 1979, the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation has supported scholarly research and literary works oriented to Marine Corps History. In keeping with such mission focus, the Foundation will soon be expanding such work by coordinating educational outreach programs to augment the National Museum of the Marine Corps visitor experience.
The National Museum of the Marine Corps provides educators an excellent opportunity to share the history of the United States Marine Corps with their students. Students can see how United States Marines have affected people and events throughout history and actually experience historical events through the immersive exhibits. Box lunches can even be pre-ordered through the Museum's food services office to help make your visits hassle-free. For more information on educational visits to the National Museum of the Marine Corps, please go to the National Museum of the Marine Corps website
