HIYH is a program for visitors of all ages who are blind or have low vision. HIYH is an opportunity to tour the collections through tactile exploration of selected objects, and through verbal description, tactile graphics, and other materials for artifacts that cannot be touched. Trained Museum docents and Visitor Services staff lead these tours. The program is held on the third Sunday of every month from 1:00-2:00 pm. There is no fee for this program, but pre-registration is required and closes 1 week prior to the program date. To register for a HIYH session, contact Michele Flynn at 703-784-4469 / 703-296-8446 or e-mail or Jack Oblein at 703-432-2622 email

Monday, January 4 Thru
Thursday, March 31
The National Museum of the Marine Corps will temporarily close to make way for two new Marine Corps aircraft. A World War II SBD Dauntless dive bomber and a new tableau featuring a Vietnam-era Sikorsky UH-34D helicopter will be added to the Museum's Leatherneck Gallery. While we never like to shut our doors, the temporary closure will ensure everyone's safety as we complete our mission to build a Museum that represents every American who has earned the title, “Marine."
