We arrived at this magnificent building about 3:30pm. There's a discount for seniors. The audio tour was great as we traveled thru the history of the Marine Corp. I learned that every branch of service has it's own Medal of Honor. There were many real life displays, actual weapons, kiosks and some interactive displays for young kids. Even though, I think middle school kids would enjoy it more than younger kids.
I would suggest you check the website before your visit. They have actvities through out the year. On 6-20-2013 they have a free concert.
