The memorial was really cool. I didn't know a lot about MacArthur but I learned a lot about him after going through this place. I highly recommend it!

I am not a war buff like my husband; however, this museum was so awesome! I learned so much about World War I and II. It had such beautiful artifacts and information that I never knew.

This is an interesting place to visit. It is where General MacArthur and his wife are interred. There are 3 floors of exhibits covering mainly his life - from the beginnings through West Point, the wars, after the wars til his death. There is a...More
