Greetings warriors! If you have not been to the National Museum of the Marine Corps, I’m here to tell you, that needs to be rectified in a hurry! That goes double for all my current and former Marine brothers out there. I have posted some pictures that I took the last time I was there, but in my mind these pictures do not do it justice. It’s one of those places you have to see and walk through to fully appreciate the history and sacrifice that is captured throughout the museum.
Stated on the museum’s website; 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.
