I didn't spend much time here, but I got to see the tombs of MacArthur and his wife. There is a visitor center that I'd come back to see.

This is a wonderful museum, a real local gem. Often times the volunteers are WWII veterans with fascinating first hand events to share. Highly recommend the MacArthur Memorial.
