The National Museum of the Marine Corps will temporarily close beginning Monday, Nov. 23. Recent increases in COVID-19 cases, both regionally and nationally, drove the closure decision.
The Museum is currently open to the public with COVID-19 protocols in place. For more information on those protocols, visit usmcmuseum.com/covid-19.html. The health and safety of visitors, staff and volunteers is the Museum’s first priority at this time. The Museum grounds, to include Semper Fidelis Memorial Park and the playground, will remain open.
Please follow the NMMC social media (@usmcmuseum) or website (usmcmuseum.com) for updates. Watch for special posts highlighting the Museum’s holiday decorations honoring Korean War veterans on the 70th anniversary of the war.
The Museum is a public-private partnership between the U.S. Marine Corps and the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation. The National Museum of the Marine Corps, under the command of Marine Corps University, preserves and exhibits the material history of the U.S. Marine Corps; honors the commitment, accomplishments, and sacrifices of Marines; supports recruitment, training, education, and retention of Marines; and provides the public with a readily accessible platform for the exploration of Marine Corps history. Admission and parking are free. For more information, call 703-784-6107 or visit on the web at usmcmuseum.com.
