THE MUSEUM WILL BE CLOSED JAN 4-MARCH 31, 2016 DUE TO CONSTRUCTION. PLEASE CHECK OUR WEBSITE FOR UPDATES. The National Museum of the Marine Corps is a lasting tribute to U.S. Marines--past, present, and future. Situated on a 135-acre site adjacent to Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia, and under the command of Marine Corps University, the Museum's soaring design evokes the image of the flag-raisers of Iwo Jima and beckons visitors to this 120,000-square-foot structure. World-class interactive exhibits using the most innovative technology surround visitors with irreplaceable artifacts and immerse them in the sights and sounds of Marines in action. Admission and parking are always free.

They expanded the museum last winter. Some of the exhibits put you into the middle of battle. Do not leave without walking through the winter battle (you will know which one I mean when you get literal goosebumps).

Focused on history, this is a world class military museum, with a comprehensive coverage of the history and battles of the USMC. A lot of detail is presented, which I like, but it is presented well.

Great museum. So much to take in from over 100 years of Marine Corp history. No admission charge. They also have a café and gift shop inside. Well worth the trip!
