We have been meaning to visit this military history spot for some time, and finally had a chance today. This is also where Macarthur and his second wife are buried. Well curated military artifacts of both General Macarthur and his father.

As a Marine, MacArthur was never on our list of icons. About the only Army officer we knew much about was Patton. So being in Norfolk with our Sea Scout group, when the opportunity arose to visit the memorial and all of it's World War...More

MacArthur needs little introduction and the memorial captures his life and impact in his more than five decades of service to the U.S. The video in the visitor center encapsulated his life well showing rare footage of his World War I and West Point service....More

I recently attended the memorial with a group of other Vietnam Helicopter Pilots; not an easy group to impress but the museum was well organized, rich in military history, and very befitting a Five-Star General who played such a key role in our country’s past....More

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!
