Owner description: 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.

The National Museum of the Marine Corps will knock your socks off. Loczated about 45 miles south of Wahington, DC, adjacent to the Quantico Marine Base, it is one of the most interesting and fascinating displays of modern technology and interaction one is likely to every see. The exhibits, constantly being updated, put visitors right in the middle of history as it was being made by the world's finest fighting force and are compelling on many levels. A great take in for those of all ages, including young (but not too young) children and site worth revisting often..

We happened to be in the Quantico area and stopped by the National Museum of the Marine Corps - what an amazing place! A great place to learn a lot of things you didn't cover in history during school (makes me wonder why?) . My older teen was totally inspired as were the rest of our family.... we spent a LOT more time there than we expected but the information and presentation was incredibly absorbing and engaging. TOTALLY worth the trip - sparked quite a bit of thoughtful conversation among multiple generations. We'll go back as often as possible that's for sure!

I found this by accident, but if you have any family members in the military, military buff, or support the military in general this is definitely a well worth stop. there is even a nice restraunt down the street that has great food for a decent price. it has patches of every unit that has past through.

Admission is free but the museum is priceless. Great exhibits -interactive and immersive. Gives you a great appreciation for the bravery of the men and women who have served our country and United States Marines. Allow a couple of hours, minimum.

I thought I was going to be bored because my Marine husband wanted to visit. This place is amazing with the planes hanging in the huge atrium to the exhibits. Very interesting. I saw activities for children throughout. I even want to bring my retired Army father here.
