A lot of interesting information about Arkansas' military history. I could only stay about an hour, but would have stayed longer if I could. I'll go back if I ever get back to Little Rock.

The museum is free and worth the stop. It's not just MacArthur history, but history of past conflicts in general. The museum flows well and we easily spent an hour learning, reading, and discussing the exhibits. Highly recommend as a historical stop.

What a surprising find.... had no idea the information available about this sad part of our history and the history of Korea. Well worth stopping at this park to read all the information on the memorial walls.

The MacArthur Museum and grounds is a wonderful place to visit. Not only is the Korean War Memorial (honors Arkansas citizens who died in the conflict) a well designed and beautifully laid out tribute, but the building where General MacArthur was born is also worth...More
