Our Programs & Impact

Over the past two years, the Museum has expanded its reach by growing and expanding its outreach programs. We think you'll find that we're much more than a cultural institution, but also a cultural home for our Marine Corps family.

The Museum's programs enhance its overall mission to do three things:

1) Educate recruits and Marines
2) Support the recruiting effort, and
3) Serve as a bridge to the community.

Therefore, our program focus areas include education, military/veteran support, and community outreach.

We believe that the phrase "once a Marine, always a Marine" should be more than just a slogan, and put community building at the heart of all of our programs.

For more information or to get involved, please contact Director of Programs & Development, Chris Weimer, at (619) 524-4426. For the education program/scouting, please contact our Educator, Joan Schwarz-Wetter at (619) 524-6038. Thank you!
