About Carolina Museum of the Marine | Al Gray Civic Institute

“A Firm Foundation for the Future”

Mission

Sustaining the ideals that are the foundation of our nation

Vision

The Museum and Al Gray Civic Institute will preserve the historic achievements, values, and ingenuity that are the hallmark of Carolina Marines and Sailors. We envision a dynamic and engaging complex with two mutually reinforcing activity centers:

  • A world class, high tech and high touch museum that brings to life the legacy of Carolina Marines and Sailors and
  • A companion institute in which students of all ages will learn and practice the enduring core values of American citizenship and the civic virtue that is emblematic of our Marine Corps legends.
