If you are an adult or group of adults who has a few hours to spend at the Museum, check out our graphic below! If you need more ideas, stop by our Information Desk when you enter the Museum and our Hospitality Ambassadors will be happy to assist you!
Adult/Adult Group with a few hours (3-4 hours):
Stroll through Legacy Walk to the WWI Gallery entrance. See how the Marines made a name for themselves at the Battle of Belleau Wood during WWI. Then take in the WWII Gallery, and make sure you see our most treasured artifact, the flag that was raised on Iwo Jima and also pictured in Joe Rosenthal's icon photo.
Grab a quick lunch at Tun Tavern on the second deck! (If you have time after lunch, check out our Combat Art Gallery on the second deck!)
Return to Legacy Walk. Explore the Korean War Gallery. Feel the chill of the Chosin Reservoir exhibit where Marines faced bitter cold conditions while fighting off the enemy. Make sure you save time for the Vietnam War Gallery, where you feel the heat and wind while exiting a CH-46 helicopter landing atop Hill 881 south at Khe Sanh.
Have more time? Continue on Legacy Walk to our newest exhibits No Better Friend, Terror Strikes and Marine Families or check out the We, The Marines movie in the Medal of Honor Theater.
If you arrive after 5 pm: Walk Semper Fidelis Memorial Park. The grounds of the Museum are open until sunset.
