Temporary Exhibit: Battles Won Sculptures by Kris Kuksi
With each piece, these sculptures of Marines represent various battles throughout the history of the Corps. The emotions in the sculpted faces reflect the struggles they have lived through on the battlefield or during humanitarian relief missions and the personal challenges they endured to become Marines.
Visitors to the Museum can view the sculptures on our second deck, next to the Combat Art Gallery.
The sculptures will be on displays until Spring 2018.
World War I Wednesdays
In commemoration of the centennial of World War I, the Museum will be hosting WWI Wednesday educational displays the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month throughout 2017 and 2018. Our Education and Community Outreach teams will be displaying WWI uniforms and gear in Leatherneck Gallery. A craft activity will also be available for children.
“Welcome Home,” a collection of photographs and memorabilia, captures the reunions of family members who have been separated by repeated deployments. The exhibit was born out of firsthand accounts of talented young women -- mothers and wives -- who shared their personal insights of what homecoming means to them, their children, and the heroes they have waited so long to see. These images show the Marine Corps itself as an extended family, whose members have celebrated together, mourned together, and helped each other during America's longest war and especially tough economic times.
On display through 2017
Marines at Work in Afghanistan
In the summer of 2011, photographer Nick Cardillicchio traveled with a unit of Marines on deployment in Afghanistan to photograph their daily life. These are portraits of individual Marines in their everyday work environment in Afghanistan’s Helmand Province. Every Marine has an important job. Most will work unseen and unknown to the public. These images give us a look inside their world. The photographer’s intent was to capture their unique strength and courage.
On display through 2017
