THE GEORGE C. MARSHALL MUSEUM is dedicated to educating the general public, students, and scholars on the changing role of the United States during the 20th century in military and diplomatic affairs as seen through the life and example of General of the Army George C. Marshall. The museum fulfills its mission by collecting, interpreting, exhibiting, educating, and researching the ideals, values, and material objects associated with General Marshall and his contemporaries.

The Marshall Museum opened in 1964 in conjunction with the Marshall Research Library. Through the museum, learn about what kind of man George Marshall was. Follow his career from a young inexperienced lieutenant to general of the armies during World War II. Find out how Marshall learned to be a leader others willingly followed. See how this one man influenced the outcome of World War II, the relief of war torn Europe, and the effects of the Cold War. The Marshall Museum features the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to Marshall in 1953, a 1943 Jeep, an interactive WWII map, and "The General", a video presentation of the life of George C. Marshall.
