•Maintaining a reference center which contains an archives and a research library.
•Training recruits in Marine Corps history.
•Developing curricula of Marine Corps history, tradition, and values.
•Providing classes and tours for Marines, students, and groups within the civilian community.
•Preserving artifacts of enduring value in accordance with the museum's mission and collection development statement
Admission to the museum; classes and tours; and information and services from the reference center are free and open to the public.
