Beautiful new building and a very nice layout which separates the different time periods and the conflicts that the Marines played a part in, which is about all of them. Being a Marine, once a Marine Always A Marine, I was surprised with some of the things I learned. If you can, set aside some time to walk the paths and see the monuments and memorials, quite relaxing. Had lunch at the Tun Tavern and the crab cake sandwich had was very good and the burger I had was also good. A little over priced but then it probably helps pay for the museum. If your into history then this is a must see.
Semper Fi Marine!!! We're so glad you enjoyed your visit and we hope you'll come back again soon. You'll definitely want to come back next year when we open the galleries telling Marine Corps history from 1976 to the present. And you're absolutely right, the proceeds from Tun Tavern, Devil Dog Diner, the Museum Store and Medal of Honor Theater help to fund programs and expansions at the Museum. We're very thankful to the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation for supporting the Museum's mission.
