Dog Days at the Museum

Saturday, June 18, 2022

Man’s best friend is taking over the National Museum of the Marine Corps!

Make plans to join us at The National Museum of the Marine Corps for Dog Days at the Museum.
On Saturday, June 18 from 10 am – 2 pm.  DAR&E will be set up at this event.

On the Museum’s parade deck, there will be several activities based on the vital role dogs play in the Marine Corps and the community. See working and service dog demonstrations, and meet therapy dog and rescue dog organizations. The official Marine Corps mascot, Chesty XVI, will be greeting visitors. Inside the Museum, the Education Team will host Family Day activities, and children have the opportunity to read to therapy dogs during “Tales with Tails.”

Dogs are welcome on the grounds of the Museum.
Please keep dogs on a leash and use the “doggie” relief area near the flagpole.

Admission to the Museum and parking are always FREE!

Blue Gray Therapy Dogs
