“1943 Jeep in Historic Building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This museum is FREE and so is the parking. It is next to the Arkansas Center for the Arts so you can go to the Art Museum while the military history buff goes to the Military Museum. They have a real 1943 Jeep and the complete history. An exhibit on the Civil War Soldier reunion in the early 1900's. There are some excellent photos of Vietnam and of course an informative Exhibit of MacArthur. Beautiful park setting.

“Very informative, great deal at no price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

As a former member of the armed forces (and a history buff) this museum was right up my alley. I really enjoyed seeing the rarely seen photos from WWII and the jeep. The Civil War section was very interesting especially how that history affected Little Rock. I was surprised that the Confederate reunion in 1911 drew so many people. The only connection that Douglas MacArthur has with this museum is that his father was stationed here when it was a citadel and the young general was born here. They had a good amount of information, pictures, and artifacts about the general as well. The fact that there was no cost to tour the museum was the first thing that got my attention but it would be well worth it even if it cost.
