Where The Past Touches The Future
Dedicated to all who have and will commit themselves to the most honorable service. The MCRD Museum opened its doors in 1987 due to the hard work of Marine veterans, their families, and friends of the Marine Corps. Since its opening, the Museum has served the Recruit Depot/Western Recruiting Region through its misson to train recruits and provide for the continuing education of Marines, support the recruiting effort, and serve as a bridge to the civilian community.
The Museum will be open only to families of graduating Marines during liberty hours following graduations. For more information on the Depot's reopening and public graduations, please refer to the Depot's official webpage here: https://www.mcrdsd.marines.mil/. Normal Museum operating hours are Monday - Saturday 8:30AM to 4PM, and admission is always free. The museum is closed on all Federal Holidays. Stop by today to learn the history of the United State Marine Corps.
