Ongoing Events & Temporary Exhibits at the Museum
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.
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 the second deck, next to the entrance to the Combat Art Gallery.
The sculptures will be on displays until Spring 2018.
Temporary Exhibit: “Welcome Home”
“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.
Visitors to the Museum can view the photographs on the second deck.
