National Museum of the Marine Corps - III

click on photos to enlarge
Need a food break...
Lunch at Tun Tavern which is conveniently located inside the museum! Nick and I had fish and chips and the boys had a Philly Cheesesteak. The only thing that would have made this better would be to serve the beer in the old timey steins...If you are reading this Tun Tavern you have some for sale in the gift shop ;)
A model of the original Tun Tavern which is the "birthplace" of the Marine Corps. It is located in Philadelphia. Sadly it is no longer there but there is a plaque marking the location. We have been there, very hard to locate actually. I'll have to find my pictures....Alrighty then, now that we are refueled we can continue on with our tour...more tomorrow :)

Linking with Signs, Signs & Good Fences ...how many signs and "fences" can you find?

For more info on the Marine Corps Museum, visit their website HERE

AND.....can you please vote for me! Voting ends tomorrow!

  9. I enjoyed seeing all the photos from your visit to the National Museum of the Marine Corp Maybe I mentioned this before but our son-in-law just got out of the Marines last August after serving two tours of duty in Afghanistan. Our daughter and he were hoping to make it to this museum while stationed in N.C. but they didn't get the chance...

  20. I never knew there was such a thing as a national marine museum, but it does make sense. Nick must have been proud. And you didn't have a Philly cheese steak? Shame!

  21. Hi Tanya,
    Glad y'all got to go the USMC museum!
    I didn't count the sigs of fences, but sure was glad to see that beautiful American flag, with the reflection of the lights on it!
    May Freedom Reign for all!

    Thank you for visiting my blog.

    Have a Beautiful Day!
    Peace :)

  24. Tanya, just been back and read all missed posts on the museum, fantastic.. I can see that the boys enjoyed it very much, I can see how they'd find it fascinating.
    BTW I tried to vote for your sunrise shot, no luck.. is it only open to USA residents?
