Montford Point Marines Museum, Jacksonville – North Carolina Thursdays June 17, 2021

For this week’s North Carolina Thursdays post, I decided to look around Onslow County. There were a few places that looked interesting. I went with Montford Point Marines Museum in Jacksonville (Wayback Machine link). COVID-19 protocols may be in effect.

You will need a visitor’s pass from Camp Lejeune if you don’t have military ID to access the museum. You can’t get the visitor’s pass from the Gilbert H. Johnson base.

Official Website: official website appears to be down; here’s the old website on Wayback Machine: Looks like the website went out sometime in 2019 as it was visible in 2018. Here’s the Camp Gilbert H. Johnson link: Also try this link:
