The Traveling Trunk Programs from the National Museum of the Marine Corps are free interactive presentations that bring a Museum Educator to your classroom or location to teach about different eras of Marine Corps History. 


Students get to touch and try-on different replica uniforms and feel the weight of the different items the Marines would have carried through the years. 


This includes gear like:

  • sewing kits

  • food rations

  • mess kits

  • entrenching tools

  • and more

This program is a great way to bring part of the museum to your students as either a preview before a field trip or as a follow-up lesson after a visit.
