I didn't know what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised! The museum is bigger than you might think, there is so much history but it's laid out in the timeline of actual events. I learned a lot and he was an amazing man!

Stumbled onto this place while staying at a nearby hotel. Rainy day so went to explore. Pretty decent museum covering the history of this controversial yet famous man. Very spacious and not crowded at all. Interesting artifacts including MacArthur's staff car and trademark corncob pipe....More
