  • This is a great museum with a mix of interactive and historical displays. You get a real feel for the life of a Marine, including Boot Camp. I liked the Vietnam War display where you walk out the back of a CH-46 Sea Knight into a Fire Base: very realistic. The museum also have a great series of aircraft displays. School age kids will love the whole experience.
  • World class, clean, wonderful guides. Small venue limits display of all that could be exhibited regarding all Marine expeditions and equipment. Korean action exhibit and diorama was good, esp. for my guests from S. Korea! Good, safe for kids with parental guidance. No restaurant. Good gift shop.
