With the ongoing COVID-19 situation preventing families from visiting the Depot for graduation we'd like to provide a place for them to watch their new Marine's graduation. Click here to view the most recent class graduate from MCRD San Diego. Additionally, families of graduating Marines can get 10% off their order of all graduation gear, gifts, and apparel with code: SemperFi10 (orders over $100 ship free!)

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 is open to the public 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.
