The Museum site is located along “The Corridor of Military History” – the heart of American history and patriotic spirit. The Corridor provides numerous opportunities for visitors and tourists, including several museums and cultural attractions which focus on our military history and how it has helped shape the character of the American people.
Spanning prominent Civil War battlegrounds from Manassas to Fredericksburg, the Corridor of Military History encompasses both the national memorials and military cemeteries at Arlington and Quantico as well as superb museums: the National Museum of the Marine Corps; the Udvar-Hazy Air & Space Museum; the planned National Museum of the U.S. Army; the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum; the National World War II Memorial; the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall; the Korean War Veterans Memorial; the Iwo Jima Memorial; and, of course, the Americans in Wartime Museum.
With tens of thousands of military personnel serving at the Pentagon and other local installations, the Corridor is a natural draw for visitors in our region. Furthermore, given its close proximity to the nation’s capital, one of the world’s top tourist destinations, the Corridor of Military History will garner broad appeal locally and nationally.
