Video Description - Published on Jul/29/2009
National Museum of the Marine Corps, Triangle, VA

The National Museum of the Marine Corps is the new historical museum of the United States Marine Corps.

It is located in Quantico, Virginia and is free to the public. It is open from 9 AM to 5 PM every day except Christmas Day.

The museum had its grand opening on November 10, 2006 and is now the number one tourist attraction in Virginia Drawing over 500,000 people annually.

On the day it was opened, President Bush came to give a dedication and to also present the family of fallen Marine Jason Dunham the Medal of Honor.

President : "These walls remind all who visit here that honor, courage, and commitment are not just words. They are core values for a way of life that puts service above self. And these walls will keep the history of the Marine Corps alive for generations of Americans to come."

Designed by Fentress Architects, the exterior design is meant to "evoke the image of the flag raisers of Iwo Jima," an image that is also preserved by the USMC War Memorial.

The 100,000-square-foot (9,300 m2) museum is a tribute to the U.S. Marines who have served their country since 1775.

The museum is a public-private venture, a cooperative effort of the US Marine Corps and the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation. The Foundation manages the museum operation, while the museum building will be donated to the Marine Corps.

The MCHF programs initially included "education, awards, publications, special projects, preservation...." In 1999, the Foundation expanded its mission to include the creation of the National Museum of the Marine Corps.

The National Museum of the Marine Corps will be the centerpiece of a complex of facilities called the Marine Corps Heritage Center. This multi-use, 135-acre (0.55 km2) campus will include the Semper Fidelis Memorial Park and Chapel; a demonstration area with parade grounds; hiking trails and other outdoor recreational offerings; a conference center and hotel; and an archive facility to restore and preserve Marine artifacts.

Exhibits

The museum features the following permanent exhibits, which were designed by Christopher Chadbourne and Associates, Inc.:

* Leatherneck Gallery
* Legacy Walk - timeline with artifacts
* Making Marines
* World War II
* Korean War
* Vietnam War

The museum currently also offers exhibits regarding: the Global War on Terrorism, Art Works by Marine Artists, and the Marine Corps Band. Future expansion of the building will allow the installation of exhibits focusing on the Corps from 1775-WW1

In addition to historical exhibits including displays of artifacts, multimedia, and full immersion experiences, the museum facilities also include class rooms, a theater, a gift shop, bar and a restaurant.

When available, free docent-led tours of the Museum for individuals and families leave from the Leatherneck Gallery at 10 AM, 12 and 2 PM. No advance reservation is required.
