The statue and museum is adjacent to the Harlingen airport. Easy access and both the airport and the museum are small. Little walking at the museum. It has a 30 minute film, Marine Corps memorabilia, a Veterans Hall of Fame and gift shop, all in a relatively small building. The statue is the mold for the one in Washington D.C. still very impressive.
