The National Museum of the Marine Corps is a historical museum that opened in 2006. The museum replaces both the Marine Corps Historical Center and the Marine Corps Air-Ground Museum.

The museum’s exterior is meant to:

“evoke the image of the flag raisers of Iwo Jima.”

The National Museum of the Marine Corps is designed to be the centerpiece of a complex of facilities called the Marine Corps Heritage Center. This campus includes:

  • Semper Fidelis Memorial Park
  • Semper Fidelis Chapel
  • A demonstration area with parade grounds
  • Hiking trails, and other outdoor recreational offerings
