Museum Virtual Tour is Now Open!

Hey everyone, phase 1 of the museum's virtual tour is now open.

Click here to take the tour.

Its really pretty cool. Phase 1 is just Leatherneck Gallery. The rest of the museum will be rolled out over the course of the Year. The World War 2 gallery will be next to open in May, and that is a pretty big gallery. Be sure to check out the additional information provided by the docents.

In other Museum News, the Secretary of the Navy has awarded the museum staff, Marines and docent volunteers the Merit Award for Superior Achievement. According to the Chief of Visitor Services, this is equivalent to a civilian version of a Navy Unit Commendation. The award is being presented tomorrow at 1430 (2:30 p.m. civilian time) in the Leatherneck Gallery.

I will not be attending the ceremony as I'll be at my day job. Its been very busy, and that is all I have to say about that.

If you haven't visited the museum yet, I hope this gets you interested in a live visit. While this virtual tour is AMAZING the real thing is so much better.
