usmc museum

The National Museum of the Marine Corps is a lasting tribute to U.S. Marines–past, present and future. Adjacent to Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia, these world-class, interactive exhibits surround visitors with irreplaceable artifacts, immersing them in the sights and sounds of Marines in action. You are invited to follow in the footsteps of Marines: from the yellow footprints that young recruits must fill at boot camp to the boot prints left in the sands of Pacific Island beaches during World War II, in the snow of the Chosin Reservoir during the Korean War, and in the red dirt of Hill 881 South in Vietnam. Free admission and parking.
