Ongoing Events and Temporary Exhibits at the Museum
“Welcome Home”
“Welcome Home,” a collection of photographs and memorabilia, captures the reunions of family members who have been separated by repeated deployments. The exhibit was born out of firsthand accounts of talented young women -- mothers and wives -- who shared their personal insights of what homecoming means to them, their children, and the heroes they have waited so long to see. These images show the Marine Corps itself as an extended family, whose members have celebrated together, mourned together, and helped each other during America's longest war and especially tough economic times.
On display through 2016
“Weapon's Platoon: A Marine's Life in Afghanistan”
This photographic exhibit by Stephen Dupont, opens at the National Museum of the Marine Corps on April 4, 2012. The series of 35 photographs is a portrait of the Marine platoon Dupont was embedded with in the Spring of 2009.
