February Field Trip is Cancelled
Due to construction, the National Museum of the Marine Corps will be closed for a prolonged period of time. Because of this, our previously scheduled field trip for February will be cancelled.
Construction has begun on the Final Phase of the National Museum of the Marine Corps. This section will open in phases over a 4-year period with the first part opening in 2017. As a part of the overall construction, the Museum will be closed January - March 2016 to hang an SBD Dauntless aircraft in Leatherneck Gallery and replace the gallery's Korean War Sikorsky HRS-2 helicopter exhibit with a tableau depicting a UH-34D helicopter during Operation Starlight in 1965.
