A Monument to HONOR, COURAGE & COMMITMENT
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 to the Museum and parking are FREE!
Please note security at the Museum:
When you visit the Museum you will be greeted by our security personnel who will ask you to empty your pockets and walk through the metal detector. Average size and smaller handbags will be x-rayed and diaper bags will be hand-checked.
Handbags larger than 14" wide x 12" high x 6" wide, briefcases, backpacks, large camera bags and suitcases will NOT be allowed into the Museum. Other prohibited items include: weapons, pepper spray and mace, sharp objects, food or drinks, and pets. (Service animals are, of course, always welcome.) Please leave these items in your vehicle to avoid any inconvenience. If you bring them into the Museum you will be required to either dispose of the item or return it to your vehicle. Museum personnel are not permitted to store items for visitors.
