We held a kosher event which required special instructions. The team worked with us at every turn to include multiple outside vendors, early access, price, access to the Chapel, help for elderly, coordinating with the hotel and just thinking outside the box. They created the ice fountain and named specialty drinks! They arranged the hall and asked for my review for arrangement and seating. Kemdall and Kathleen always emailed and called me back. They wenr out of their way to make sure everyone, including me, had a great time. You cannot beat the beautiful location and grounds. We are going to buy a brick for this fantastic event. The Docent will forever be remembered by my family. There is a reason they say the Marines are the few and the proud. No one can measure up to this staff. Also, I always worry about food but don't. This place has the best roast beef and lamb. Plus we had a pasta bar that got rave reviews. Just incredible. Thank you all.

The National Museum of the Marine Corps is a hidden wedding gem in Triangle, VA. Not only does it honor our Marines, you can hold a beautiful wedding there surrounded by the values and history!

We reached out and were connected with Kendall, who I literally cannot say enough amazing things about. She is the venue coordinator that you don't even realize until after how lucky you were to be able to work with her. She told us about the package where we could have the ceremony in the Semper Fidelis chapel, which is at the top of a hill overlooking the museum. We could then have the reception in the museum. To be able to have both was exactly what we wanted. Our guests were able to walk down some beautiful pathways from one location to the other.

The chapel is everything I could have dreamed of. It has three glass walls so it almost seems like you're outside in the woods. Our guests told us that it was one of the most beautiful venues they've been to. The reception site is simply awesome. I didn't want to get married/have a reception in a cookie-cutter location, I wanted something unique. I've been married two weeks and still have guests coming up to me telling me how awesome the venue was. There are planes overhead, guests will have access to the galleries, and it's just a jaw-dropping site. We worked with Kathleen for the catering/reception, and she's fantastic as well. We had a plated dinner, bar service, and it was seamless. Food was good, and the bar pours were generous.

Honestly though, one of the most valuable things is the customer service you get with Kendall & Kathleen. Both are extremely responsive and quickly answered numerous emails I sent. Kendall personally helped me while I was waiting to make my entrance, and was so sweet and calming and held my train. Vendors don't have to do these things, but she goes that extra step because she is great. You will not regret going with the National Museum of the Marine Corps and the Semper Fidelis chapel.

Working with the staff at the National Museum of the Marine Corps was a FANTASTIC experience! Our venue contact Kendall was great to work with during all our pre planning meetings with our client. She was onsite on the night of the wedding to make sure that everything ran smoothly. Our Catering Manger Kathleen communicated with us on final catering details and floor plans. On event day, the staff did a wonderful job with presentation and service. We had a pre planned special request for the reception, and the catering team executed the surprise distribution of “la hora loca” props flawlessly. Our couple and guests all had a great time!

This is a fantastic Museum and tribute to the Marine Corp. I was privileged to be allowed to take engagement photos at this location for a client who served in the Marine Corp. My wife and I returned the next day to walk through the museum and were impressed at the exhibits!

Elegant out of the box venue! Love this location.

A wonderful venue to have a unique wedding reception, or any other event. The staff is friendly and attentive, and do a great job!
