Phase I of construction, Reflection and Celebration Park, dedicated on May 6, 2016, features the world’s largest bronze Eagle, Globe and Anchor sculpture, standing at a staggering 13 feet high with an 11 foot wingspread and weighing 2,500 pounds. Tribute bricks, available for purchase in honor or memory of loved ones and friends, line the walkways in honor and memory of those who serve(d).
Phase II is underway, with a campaign goal of $28M to build the 40,000 square foot museum and cititzenship institute, and to design and install exhibits, classrooms and theaters, and immersive technology. In addition to commemorating the legacy and the many firsts of the Marines and Sailors who serve(d) in the Carolinas, the Museum and Institute will host a variety of formal and informal events, from promotion, reenlistment and retirement ceremonies, to reunions, Marine Corps and Navy balls, educational workshops, leadership training, symposia, conferences, and other special offerings.
The Museum of the Marine will welcome, inspire and intrigue thousands of visitors and participants each year.
