Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) routinely gives demonstrations throughout the country. While this is not a museum nor their largest show, these are images of the equipment on display on July 4, 2010 in New York City. You will see the V-22 Osprey, a very impressive machine, the Apache, and the CH-46 transport helicopter.

The National Museum of the Marine Corps is located near Quantico, about 35 minutes south of Washington DC. Opened in 2006, it honors the people how has served and is serving the United States. Besides a history of the service told through artifacts, uniforms, and exhibits, the museum contains a good collection of aircraft and a smaller collection of armored vehicles. The center piece however in my opinion are the life size dioramas with sound effects that you literally walk through. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the Washington DC Area.
