See the Military Working Dog exhibit showcasing the history, training, equipment and missions of Marine Corps military working dogs.
The Marine Corps launched its military dog program during WWII. Marine Corps dogs have participated in every deployment and war since that time. Military working dogs conduct searches of vehicles, open areas, and buildings for the detection of explosives or illegal drugs as well as for lost or wanted persons.
In addition to the exhibit on dogs, visitors can see 31 historical aircraft up close as well as artifacts from the earliest days of aviation to the present.
Admission and parking are free.
