The Semper Fidelis Memorial Chapel is the most beautiful space I have laid eyes on. It has so much sentimental value. I would recommend this facility for anyone interested in an intimate ceremony.

We fell in love with the Semper Fidelis Memorial Chapel, and could not have asked for a more beautiful, intimate setting. Our wedding was in the evening, so we held our reception in the museum after hours, and had it all to ourselves. Pam (director of events) and Kelly (director of catering) were very helpful and accommodating for anything that we needed, or that our guests needed. Highly recommend, especially for a military wedding!

If you're looking for a unique venue, and beautiful site, this is definitely the place. I can't even tell you how many compliments we received on our venue alone. The chapel where we had the ceremony was absolutely gorgeous, and a great backdrop for pictures. I worked with Kelly and she was awesome! Very responsive, and always willing to help and answer all my questions on the catering end of it. Pam was great on answering all my questions in regards to the museum itself. We ended up choosing a buffet for our meal, and it was delicious! All of our guests raved about how great the food was. All in all I would definitely recommend the museum for your wedding venue!

The National Museum of the Marine Corps was the absolute best venue for my wedding. The staff here are INCREDIBLE!! From setting up full tables for our food tasting to providing us with a cocktail tasting to choose our signature drinks, everyone gave off the vibe that they were here for us. We worked closely with Kelly who was amazing. Before the guests arrived, the museum put my bridal party and I up in the tun tavern and had a personal bartender for us. It was so much fun to spend time with my bridesmaids and new husband alone before the reception. The food and drinks were amazing and my guests cannot stop talking about everything. We served a pecan apple tart for dessert (delicious!) and the museum boxed up our cake into individual boxes for the guests to take home. They made every detail come together flawlessly and gave my over 200 guests each a personal experience.

The museum and the museum chapel have so many locations for gorgeous pictures. The lighting (as well as the high ceiling) inside the museum at night are unbelievable. Although the dance floor was a huge hit, my non-dancing guests LOVED the opportunity to tour the museum throughout my reception.

My only advice would be absolutely go for the extra reception hour--your guests will not be ready to leave this incredible venue!!! It was absolutely worth it!

Spectacular! Our wedding was at the beautiful chapel on the hill overlooking the museum. The reception was held in the museum. Outstanding across the board. The guests just raved about the venue, the food and the museum exhibits(which are open for your event).
The staff at the NMMC were exceptional. So helpful and patient. The had wonderful suggestions. They walked us through the whole process so there were no surprises. On the evening of the event, the management staff was there overseeing the whole thing. The catering staff was incredible- so attentive.
And the food was outstanding (a pleasant surprise).
Can't say enough good thing about it and such a special place!
