MCRD Museum Education Program
The Command Museum’s education program impact thousands of students, youth organizations, recruits, Marines, and Sailors every year. The museum’s education staff has incorporated the most current technologies and teaching methods to provide our youth with the most kinetic, immersive educational experience possible. These programs are at the heart of ensuring that we are doing our part to prepare the next generation for success, whether it be assisting scouts with attaining badges, instilling our Core Values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment, or ensuring the Fleet Marine Force is among the most educated military branches in the world.
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.
