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.

Just south the Washington DC, the museum is a great place to visit. The museum is very informative on the history of the corp. There are walking trails around the museum that have several monuments to visit. I recommend taking 3-4 hours for a visit.

One of the best military museums I've been to. The experience is very immersive with my favorite being walking off the ramp of a CH-46 and onto a fighting position in Vietnam. It's also offers a simulated M-16 range for a small fee. My hope...More
