NEW AT THE MUSEUM:
Recent Acquisitions Exhibit
Located on the second deck of the Museum, visitors can view a special exhibit that highlights the wide variety of artifacts that the Museum has recently added to their collection.
A Tribute In Silver Exhibit
These silver objects represent various forms of tribute, including those that commemorate personal and professional achievement, as well as sporting victories. Many familiar names appear on these objects, to include Smedley Butler, Jacob Zeilin, John Philip Sousa, and Charles Heywood. This collection of silver objects displays a strong tradition of achievement and excellence in the Marine Corps.
The exhibit is located on the second deck of the Museum.
Veteran Vision Project
Devin Mitchell launched the Veteran Vision Project in 2014. The mission of his photo essay of American military service members is to provide a lens and a voice for them.
Arizona State University was impressed with this mission and began commissioning Devin in 2015, while he was an ASU student, to photograph ASU veteran students, staff, alumni, faculty and community veterans for the annual ASU Salute to Service.
The 38 photographs on display on our second deck are drawn from the ASU Veteran Vision Project collection.
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: 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.
