National Museum of the Marine Corps Museum Store

National Museum of the Marine Corps Museum Store Museum Store

The Museum Store, as part of the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation, was in existence well before the National Museum of the Marine Corps came about. It served as the retail presence for the Marine Corps Museum when it resided in the Marine Corps Historical Center in the Washington Navy Yard, from 1977-2005. With the opening of the National Museum, on 10 November 2006, the Store became an instant source for books, souvenirs, apparel, home decor, graphics, media, and toys representing the Marine Corps and its rich history. The Museum Store is the perfect stop in capping off one's visit to Museum. For those unable to visit the museum in person, the online store (www.marineheritage.org/Store) is the best source for museum and Marine Corps products.

A must see!

"Take Me Home Huey," a sculpture created from the remains of a U.S. Army Huey helicopter, will be on display at the National Museum of the Marine Corps until tomorrow.
This multi-media art project by contemporary artist Steve Maloney was fashioned from Huey helicopter #174, found in an Arizona boneyard. Maloney created the sculpture to draw attention to the sacrifices made by veterans and to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the #VietnamWar. It is his hope that the artwork will raise awareness of the #veterans of all wars who are suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome.

23 February 1945 - Flag Raising on Iwo Jima

On this date, the Marines took control of Mount Suribachi. Onlookers cheered as the assault platoon fought to the summit and raised a small flag. Later that day, different troops raised a larger flag while others respectfully lowered the original. Several combat photographers captured these stirring events on film, but Joe Rosenthal’s snapshot of the men struggling to raise the second flag in a stiff wind became an enduring symbol of American resolve.
The second flag raised on Iwo Jima is on display in our WWII Gallery. Please stop by and see it when we reopen on April 1st or view it on our Virtual Experience: http://www.virtualusmcmuseum.com/WWII_12.asp.

19 February 1945

On this date, U.S. Marines landed on Iwo Jima following a terrific naval bombardment. The first wave of Marines had more trouble with the terrain than enemy fire, but the Japanese responded quickly from their dug in positions and swept the beaches with concentrated fire. Iwo Jima would be a very tough fight.

Hear from a Marine that was there -- our docent, Frank Matthews shares in this video what it was like to land at Iwo Jima.

Check out behind the scenes photos of the prep work for the SBD Dauntless and UH-34D installation!

The last couple of days we have been busy prepping the SBD for installation above the Tarawa tableau in Leatherneck Gallery. The plane has been unwrapped and the wings will be attached today. The Dorfman figures that will be placed in the SBD are also getting outfitted with period uniforms by curators.

The UH-34D helicopter is also being prepped so that it can be placed on a new Vietnam War era tableau in the gallery.

Stay tuned for more updates!

A Marine Corps captain just completed seven marathons on seven continents in seven days as part of the World Marathon Challenge.

He ran 183.4 miles in 7 days through snow, mountains, tropical heat and city streets, all for his fellow Marines.

The online store is still open during the Museum Closure!

The doors to the National Museum for the Marine Corps will temporarily close, January 4 - March 31, 2016. The closure, in conjunction our Final Phase construction to add 115,000 square feet, will allow two new aircraft to be added to Leatherneck Gallery. A recently restored World War II SBD Dauntless dive bomber will be hung from the ceiling of the central gallery, while a new tableau featuring a Vietnam-era Sikorsky UH-34D helicopter will be installed on the floor.

The Museum has remained open and free to the public nearly every day since its 2006 dedication. More than a half million visitors walk through its galleries each year. The temporary closure is necessary due to the significant logistical and engineering process required to install the two aircraft. The entire building, including its eateries and Museum Store will close. However, the Store will still operate online, and the outdoor playground and chapel, pathways, and memorials of the adjoining Semper Fidelis Memorial Park will remain open, weather and construction permitting. Family Day activities will also continue but they will take place in Teacher-in-Residence Trailer that is to the right of the Museum when facing the entrance. The Marine Corps Heritage Foundation's and Museum’s websites and social media will post updates during the closure.

“While we never like to close the doors of our Museum, this process will better enable us to tell the stories of every American who has earned the title 'Marine," remarked LtGen Robert R. Blackman, Jr., President and CEO of the Foundation. “Marine Corps history is American history, and we look forward to sharing these impressive pieces of our past with visitors from across the country and around the world."

“The addition of the aircraft is part of the Museum's ongoing efforts to more completely interpret the history of the Marine Corps and share more of the collection,” according to Museum Director Lin Ezell. In March, the Foundation broke ground on the construction of an additional 117,000 square feet of new physical space. Upon completion of the construction, the Museum will have nearly doubled in size to make room for a giant-screen theater, expanded education suite and Children’s Gallery, a Sports Gallery, Art Gallery, Hall of Valor, and two additional historical galleries depicting the bravery and service of the men and women who served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1976 through present day. The construction is scheduled to be finished in 2017, and galleries will begin opening in 2017, with all exhibitions completed by 2020.

Happy 240th Birthday Marines!
"On November 10, 1775, a Corps of Marines was created by a resolution of the Continental Congress. Since that date many thousand men have borne the name Marine. In memory of them it is fitting that we who are Marines should commemorate the birthday of our Corps by calling to mind the glories of its long and illustrious history." - Gen John A. Lejeune, 13th Commandant of the Marine Corps

Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting Marines extinguish some of their first fuel fires at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C., Oct. 16, 2015. The training exercise taught the new Marines to battle the heat and keep pushing until they annihilate the flames, as well as get used to the environment of a real fire.
