Temporary Exhibits at the Museum
Hollywood Leathernecks: Movie Posters Inspired by Marines
Our new exhibit, "Hollywood Leathernecks: Movie Posters Inspired by Marines," provides a glimpse into how Marines have been portrayed in American movies from the 1920s to today. Visitors will trace Hollywood's version of Marine Corps history through this colorful and fun show featuring more than 30 posters.
Appropriately, this show is adjacent to our giant screen Medal of Honor Theater, which plays "We the Marines," a destination film depicting Marines in their most authentic settings.
Temporary Exhibit: 35th Anniversary -- Beirut and Grenada
October 2018 marks the 35th anniversaries of the terrorist bombings of the Marine Barracks in Beirut, Lebanon, and the beginning of Operation Urgent Fury in Grenada. Visitors to the Museum can view the informational exhibit in Legacy Walk Gallery.
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.
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.
