NCIS Headquarters Tours
Unfortunately, we are not in a position to offer tours of our headquarters building. A host of force protection and security issues preclude our giving the general public access to our facilities.

If you are in the Washington, DC, area however, there are a number of significant Navy- and Marine Corps-related sites that are open to the public.

The National Museum of the U.S. Navy, aboard the Washington Navy Yard, hosts a fine collection of exhibits focused on the history of the Navy. The U.S. Navy Museum Cold War Gallery is right next door as well. Also on board Washington Navy Yard are the Navy Art Collection and the Display Ship Barry, a decommissioned Cold War-era destroyer that is open for self-guided public tours. The websites below will provide you with the information needed on their hours and accessing the Washington Navy Yard.


The U.S. Navy Memorial and Naval Heritage Center are located on Pennsylvania Avenue near the National Mall.


The Marine Corps Memorial in Arlington, VA, and the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, VA, are also sites in the greater Washington metropolitan area that are well worth visiting.
