So much to see about how his military life parallels the military history of the 20th Century. Very moving exhibits, especially that of the battle for the Philippines. This is an impressive memorial. Within walking distance of the Hampton Roads Naval Museum and Battleship Wisconsin.

What a great find! Amanda Williams and James Zobel were over the top helpful. We enjoyed the museum and make sure you see all the buildings and grounds. Very well done and it is free which is amazing in these times.

This is a fantastic memorial and museum that you should spend some time seeing if you're interested in military history. Tons of exhibits and displays along with a nice intro film. Free. Right next to the shopping mall so just walk across street.

Here, you will see all the great things that this American Hero did during his 52 years of serving his country. It is a little one sided in its presentation, but it's also a Memorial built by MacArthur before he died. Lots of great history...More

Friends from out of town asked us to take them here. Nothing to boast about. In fact, I can't think of anything to add to get this to 100 characters.
