Situated on a 135-acre site adjacent to Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia, the National Museum of the Marine Corps is a lasting tribute to U.S. Marines—past, present, and future.  The museum features world-class interactive exhibitions utilizing the most innovative technology to surround visitors with irreplaceable artifacts and immerse them in the sights and sounds of Marines in action.

Our visit includes two guided tours (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) that allow you to experience the history of America through the eyes of the Marine Corps.  You will discover what it is like to be a Marine; understand their contributions to the nation, learn the meaning of their core values (honor, courage, and commitment), and explore how the Marine Corps has evolved over the past 200 years.  We will have lunch in the museum’s Tun Tavern, which pays homage to the Tun Tavern in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  According to tradition, this small brewery is where the United States Marines held their first recruitment drive in 1775.
