The National Museum of the Marine Corps is an impressive modern structure featuring a soaring, 210-foot tilted mast atop a 160-foot glass atrium that evokes a dramatic image of the World War II flag-raising at Iwo Jima. The 200,000 square foot museum displays thousands of artifacts that document the life and bravery of Marines throughout American history.
