The only reason I will not give a 5 rating is because their aircraft display was so disappointing. In the late 1970s, they had an aircraft display on the base at Quantico. It was absolutely wonderful. Today, a few aircraft are suspended from the ceiling like toys. Very disappointing indeed.

Otherwise, this is a wonderful museum, laying out the history of our Marines in a logical manner. Be prepared to spend a lot of time. There is ample parking, but so much to see and read. Take the kids if they're old enough. They'll enjoy it, too.

Don't forget to visit the Semper Fidelis Memorial Park, which I have reviewed separately. To visit both, you will need at least 4 hours.

This is an amazing museum with so much to see and learn. We did not have time to see everything, but we will definitely come back another time. I particularly enjoyed the exhibit on the Making of a Marine. There is historical information alongside quotes, photos, and other elements that help bring the history to life.

If my review is useful, please give me a “helpful” vote.

1. Bottom Line Up Front/frame of reference for my remarks. This is my third visit. I am a retired Marine Corps Infantry Officer, history buff and a tour guide aboard the Battleship North Carolina; as such I have high expectations of military museums. I have visited over 30 in the United States. However, I am always willing to visit any small museum that may not be professionally-curated. This museum contains a great deal of very well-maintained/restored/re-furbished items. The museum is professionally-curated on the highest level

2. Details of my visit

2.a. Date & Time. Sunday 30 Oct 2022 (morning - afternoon).

2.b. Other patrons. This was a quiet day; during my visit, there were approximately ten other groups consisting of 3-5 adults and children. Additionally, there was a Boy Scout event in the main gallery consisting of approximately 50 persons.

2.c. Length of visit. I was at the museum for 3 1/2 hours. If this is your first visit or have little/no knowledge of the Marine Corps, you may need at least four hours.

3. Location. Just off of Interstate 95 near the Marine Corps base at Quantico, Virginia. Check the museum’s website for current information; I plugged the address in to my iPhone and it took me directly to the museum.

4. Access

4.a. Passenger vehicles. The parking lots can be accessed by any type of passenger vehicle. There are a great deal of parking spaces.

4.b. Buses and RVs. I consider the parking lot to be accessible to these vehicles; I recommend looking at the site on Bing or Google Maps to confirm.

5. Parking. No charge; the parking lot is paved.

6. Admission. No charge.

7. Hours of operation. Check the museum’s website for current information.

8. Handicap access. The museum is completely handicap-accessible. There are benches scattered throughout the museum and there is an elevator to the second floor (where the restaurant is located).

9. Child friendliness. I would assess that the museum is child-friendly. There is one gallery that is oriented towards children; I did not enter this gallery.

10. Permissions/prohibitions

10.a. Weapons. Weapons (to include knives) are not permitted. Be prepared to pass through a medical detector.

10.b. Photography. Non-flash photography is permitted.

10.c. Pets and service animals. Pets are not permitted; legitimate service animals are permitted.

10.d. Food and drinks (including water) are not permitted in the exhibit halls.

11. Type/nature of visit. Visitors may conduct un-guided tours; I do not know if guided tours are available; consider calling the museum or checking their website.

12. Layout of museum. 135 acre property with paved walking trails; 100,000 + square foot museum.

13. Entry Hall. This is a very large, high, circular display hall with large, complex dioramas and aircraft.

13.a. World War II diorama. Landing Vehicle Tracked and disembarked troops at Tarawa.

13.b. World War II F-4U Corsair fighter. Suspended from ceiling

13.c. World War II Douglas SBD dive bomber. Suspended from the ceiling.

13.d. World War II fighter. I cannot remember the type model series. Suspended from the ceiling.

13.e. Vietnam Diorama. H-34 helicopter in a landing zone, disembarking Marine Fire Team in a rice paddy.

13.f. 1980s - current. AV-8B Harrier attack jet.

14. Timeline Hall. This is a circular hallway that wraps around the entry hall, is the entry point for all exhibit halls listed below and contains a very comprehensive, detailed timeline of Marine Corps history from 1775 to the present day.

NOTE. All of the Exhibit Halls listed below consist of: informative placards; photographs; weapons; uniforms; equipment; small dioramas and large, full-size, complex dioramas.

15. Exhibit Hall - Making Marines. As the name implies, this hall depicts how civilians are transformed into U.S. Marines. Of note: there is an indoor simulated marksmanship training range (it requires payment).

16. Exhibit Hall - Organization/Origin of the Continental Marine Corps. Revolutionary War.

17. Exhibit Hall - The Barbary Wars. North Africa, early 1800s.

18. Exhibit Hall - Marines in the U.S. Civil War.

19 Exhibit Hall - Spanish American War (1898); Philippine Insurrection (1899-1902); Boxer Rebellion - China (1899-1901); "Banana Wars" (Caribbean, Central and South America (early 1900s)

20. Exhibit Hall - World War I.

21. Exhibit Hall - World War II. Of note: M-3 Stuart Tank; F4F Wildcat fighter;7 5mm anti-tank gun; M4 Sherman tank; TBM Avenger torpedo bomber

22. Exhibit Hall - Korean War. Of note: a large, walk-through full-size diorama of a mortar position and machine-gun emplaacement on a cold, snowy hilltop; M-26 Pershing tank

23. Exhibit Hall - Vietnam War. Of note: a large, walk through, full-size diorama of a artillery fire base (you actually walk through a helicopter fuselage to enter); A-4 Skyhawk attack aircraft; a very rare (I have only seen one other on display) M-50 Ontos anti-tank vehicle.

24. Exhibit Hall - Forward Deployed (currently closed). Beirut, Grenada, Somalia, Bosnia, Kosovo.

25. Exhibit Hall - Afghanistan & Iraq (currently closed - but you can view it from the second floor).

26. Amenities.

26.a. Restrooms. Restrooms are available and clean.

26.b. Water fountains. Water fountains are available.

26.c. Climate control. The museum is heated/air conditioned.

26.d. Food & beverages. Tun Tavern serves food and beverages (including alcohol). Devil Dog Tavern (I did not see where it is).

37.e. Gift shop. The museum has a large gift shop that has items oriented toward children and adults.

37.f. Theaters. There are two theaters that show films on an average of every hour; one is free, the other requires payment.

38 Other museums I can personally recommend. Listed from north to south and then westward.

38.a. National Museum of the U.S. Army. Fort Belvoir, Virginia.

38.b. American Armored Foundation Tank Museum. Danville, Virginia. This is a huge (over 250,000 square feet) museum containing: Jeeps, trucks, armored vehicles, artillery pieces and tanks. Of note, they have a Russian T-34 tank. Be advised, it is neither heated nor air-conditioned.

38.c. Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum. Charleston, South Carolina. Aircraft Carrier Yorktown; Destroyer Laffey; quite a few 1970s & 1980s aircraft on the flight deck and some beautifully-restored World War II aircraft in the hangar deck.

38.d. Museum of Aviation. Warner Robins, Georgia.

38.e. National Museum of the U.S. Army Infantry. Fort Benning, Georgia.

38.f. Valiant Air Command Museum. Titusville, Florida (near Cape Canaveral).

38.g. National Museum of Naval Aviation. Pensacola, FL.

38.h. U.S. Veterans Memorial Museum. Huntsville, Alabama. This is a small museum that is not professionally-curated but has a great deal of well-organized collections of weapons, uniforms and equipment. The greatest attribute of this museum is that they have a comprehensive collection of all Jeep models developed throughout World War II and afterward.

38.i. Battleship Alabama. Mobile, Alabama. In addition to the ship, they have quite a few aircraft outside but, more importantly, they have quite a few beautifully-restored aircraft in an indoor pavilion.

38.j. National Museum of World War II. New Orleans, Louisiana.

38.k. National Museum of the Pacific War. Fredericksburg, Texas.

39. Conclusion. This museum is definitely worth visiting if you are in the area and is worth a special trip even if you are not in the area.

If you are driving south on I-95 from DC, do no miss this outstanding museum dedicated to the history of the United States Marines. The outside is mean to resemble the raising of the US flag on Iwo Jima, and the interior is a great example of what it means to be a US Marine. Do not miss this museum!!

As a Marine, this was my second trip to the museum as I went about 8 years ago. Although I remembered alot of the exhibits, I enjoyed going through the museum for the second time. Last time, I was so tired I did not spend any time exploring the grounds around the museum and even though I was really pooped (I will be 88 in 6 weeks) I did get to see the Chapel and Chesty's monument.
If you are older, you may want to plan on two days to have the time to see all the exhibits inside and spend some time on the grounds, outside.
The Iraq and Afghanistan exhibits are not done but we were able to see them from the second floor.
Had a good lunch a the Tun Tavern.

This museum has a lot of history. It is well put together. The Iraq and Afghanistan war set was still being put together but you could see a little of it from the second floor. There’s a hallway behind the art gallery.

We were really impressed with the National Museum of the Marine Corps. It was a lot bigger than we expected. The displays were done very well and lifelike. It takes you through from the beginning of the Corp through history and the wars. In several areas they had audio, which really made the display come to life. We actually could have stayed here a lot longer, so much to see. There were a couple displays that they were still working on of the more recent wars. They had a short movie you could pay extra for but we didn't have the time to stay. It was so worth the trip.

We went to the Tun Tavern upstairs and had lunch. It's a small quaint tavern with a limited menu, but I must say everything was very good. And they had outstanding ice tea!

Great history of the Marine Corps. Lots of detail, photos and near real life experiences are presented. The audio and visual displays along with very interactive sections make it a fun and enjoyable experience. Provides opportunity to respect the Marines of the past and shows lots of modernization aspects for the future. Museum was much larger than expected, museum also provides knowledgeable people thoughtout the various sections if you have questions.
