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.

If you love the US Marine Corps and/or museums; or, if you're just patriotic; THIS is a must see if you're in the DC/Northern Virginia area! The US Marine Corps Museum in Quantico VA (about a half hour south of DC on Rt 1 (which parallels I95) is a quiet space that honors the Corps with their outdoor memorials. And,... More

The Museum of the US Marine Corps is a wonderful, educational and proud series of displays depicting the history of our Marines. I judge museums as how they stand up to those along the National Mall, and the building, displays, storyline here are all perfectly in sync. A side trip within to the theatre and especially lunch at the Tun... More

This is a fantastic trip through time. We have been many times and are eagerly waiting for the expansion to open. You will experience the Marines from the very beginning to today. Also often there are Marines from the past shearing stories.

This is a must see for everyone. It gives a great depiction of the United States Marine Corp from the very beginning to the present day. Oh. Be advised that there are more exhibits to come.

We were just going to stop here for an hour or two, but got caught up in it so much that when we left after 3 hours, we were only up to the end of WWII. My husband's brother and father had been marines, so it had special meaning for him, but it is fascinating whether or not you have... More

First if you are traveling on I-95 you will see what looks like a church, and you are near Quantico take the time to see this very well done museum that chronicles the history of the Marine Corps. Very detailed, tastefully done and a great tribute to the Marines. You can easily spend a couple of hours hoping through the... More

I've found out more about the art of saving lives and the art of warfare in this museum. It's a great place to visit to learn what the Marines are all about, and to realize how important their role in the defense of USA truly is. Plenty to see, and it is my belief the exhibition is ever growing. Just... More
