Royal Marines Museum (Birds Eye)
The Royal Marines Museum is located in Eastney (Portsmouth), England, and is open to the public every day of the week throughout the year apart from Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day. A registered charity, it is also a designated museum under the terms of the National Heritage Act 1983 and an executive non-departmental public body by virtue of receiving Grant-in-Aid from the Ministry of Defence.

Established in October 1958, the Museum represents a complete history of the Royal Marines from their beginnings in 1664 through to the present day. Highlights of the Museum include the Medal Room, with over 8000 medals on show (including all 10 Victoria Crosses awarded to the Corps) and, as of June 2008, The Making of the Royal Marines Commando exhibition, a major display highlighting the demands of the 32-week training course undertaken by all Royal Marines recruits.
