Corridor of Military History
The Museum will be located along “The Corridor of Military History,” the heart of American history and patriotism. This tourism corridor offers numerous museums and cultural attractions for people interested in America’s military history and the character of the American people.
This Corridor of Military History spans major Civil War battlegrounds from Manassas to Fredericksburg, includes national memorials and military cemeteries at Arlington and Quantico, and has superb museums with military exhibits and themes—the National Museum of the Marine Corps, the Udvar-Hazy Air & Space Museum, the planned National Museum of the U.S. Army, Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, National World War II Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, Iwo Jima Memorial, and, of course, the Americans in Wartime Museum.
Proximity to the nation’s capital, one of the world’s most vibrant tourist destinations, will draw even more visitors to the region. Plus, with tens of thousands of active duty personnel serving at the Pentagon and other regional installations and with so many veterans living in our region, we believe the Corridor of Military History will have both local and national appeal.
