The Education Program of the MCRD Command Museum provides free programming designed to teach Marine Corps history, tradition, and values.

We accomplish this by:

  • Teaching US and world history, geography, communications, and current events to K-12 students in accordance with California History-Social Studies Content Standards and the Common Core Curriculum.

  • Teaching Marine Corps history and values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment to youth organizations.

  • Providing guided tours of museum galleries to visiting student and youth groups.

  • Developing curricula for out of area educators.

  • Developing historical materials about Marine Corps history.

Please contact us if you, your class, your group, or your organization would like to receive instruction, curricula, or tours.   Museum staff host visiting groups in the museum, and also travel to classrooms to provide instruction.   We will gladly send curricula to out of area teachers and home school parents at no cost.
