  • About

    The Marine Corps Heritage Foundation (MCHF) is a Section 501 ©(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve and promulgate the history, traditions and culture of the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) as well as to educate all Americans in its virtues. The Foundation vigorously seeks financial support to provide continued leadership, strategic direction and financial oversight in supporting and expanding programs at the National Museum of the Marine Corps and beyond its walls. Since opening to the public on November 10, 2006, the National Museum of the Marine Corps has quickly become a place for Marines to convene, share their experiences, celebrate their victories and honor their fallen. Currently the Museum includes over 1,000 artifacts including tanks, aircraft, small arms, uniforms and over 1,800 photographs, letters and illustrations. Interactive and immersive experiences allow guests to travel along the frozen TokTong pass in Korea amidst enemy troops, disembark a helicopter into the landing zone atop Hill 881 South in Vietnam and experience American history as seen through the eyes of Marines.
