Triangle - National Museum of the Marine Corps

18900 Jefferson Davis Highway

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.

Wow! My family and I visited last week and to say we were impressed would be an understatement! The property was gorgeous and so clean! Inside they did a wonderful job capturing so much history! I cannot wait to go back and see things I missed because there is so much! Also the staff working there (retired veterans) So incredibly knowledgeable and interesting! Thank you for the experience! Just a few pictures

Awesome museum. Historical to present day. Free to go in, souvenirs are good prices. People who work there very knowledgeable and friendly . Very much like the USMC...clean, well kept, want to go back again. Can't see all in one day if you do it right. Stuff for adults as well as kids. Movies accurate and very good. Excellent place to go.

Impressive museum. Very helpful and knowledgeable volunteers/staff. Loved the planes hanging above exhibits. It will be even better when the back portion is complete. Tun tavern was excellent for lunch. Loved the way it was done up. Accessible without base ID so non-military can also enjoy.

I've loved this museum from the day it opened. Loved it so much, it's where my friends received their commission, where some have gotten married, and where I chose to retire. I've spent Marine Corps birthdays here and regrettably failed to submit my Iraq/Afg photos to to contribute to the new wing. This weekend I took my girlfriends daughter to share some USMC and my history. She had as much of a blast as I did. It's a must see for the area.

I haven't wanted to go since I got out of the Marines a few years ago and finally got around to going. A lot of the history I knew from my time in or had heard about it at one point but that was fine with me. The way it was set up and presented was really good. The others in my group had a good time as well seeing and learning all that they could. They had a few speakers that day and we got there a few minutes after Kyle Carpenter finished up and he was just doing questions when we walked by there.
