Welcome to the MCRD Command Museum.
  Our mission is to provide an educational setting that portrays the legacy of the Marine Corps.  We accomplish this by:

  • Creating exhibits about the history of the Marine Corps from the late 19th century to the present day
  • Maintaining a reference center which contains an archives and a research library
  • Training recruits in Marine Corps history
  • Developing curricula of Marine Corps history, tradition, and values
  • Providing classes and tours for Marines, students, and groups within the civilian community
  • Preserving artifacts of enduring value in accordance with the museum's mission and collection development statement
Admission to the museum; classes and tours; and information and services from the reference center are free and open to the public.
