George C. Marshall Museum

George C. Marshall Museum

The museum dedicated to the life of General George C. Marshall also houses many of his papers in the research library.

This museum profiles one of the 20th century's greatest military and diplomatic leaders through exhibits related to the Marshall Era (1880-1960). Marshall led the Allied military through World War II and organized the European Recovery Program (Marshall Plan), which rebuilt Europe when the war was over. The general's papers are housed in the research library.

We hope you enjoy our work.
