The article provides information on the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, Virginia. Visitors might not equate modesty with a 118,000-square-foot museum topped by a 210-foot spire slanting like the flagpole in the famous Iwo Jima photograph, and designed to attract the attention of those driving past on Interstate 95. The museum is massive and plain from the outside, like a bunker dug into the side of a hill.
