After passing the memorial complex walking to/from a conference several days, a friend stopped in for a visit. We were the only visitors at the time. We appreciated the City of Norfolk offering the memorial and galleries free of charge. The docents were a nice...More
I was in Norfolk for the first time In October 2018. I am an ole Navy Veteran, and I did see all Navy stuff that Norfolk had to offer, but while I was researching the Norfolk area, I noticed MacArthur's Memorial was there too. Be...More
Free and certainly worth seeing when in the Norfolk area. Gen. MacArthur was a military kid and while he considered the Philippines or New York City his home, his mother was from Norfolk so chose to be interred in Norfolk.
The building is the old...More
Our group was only allotted one hour to visit the memorial, most of which we spent on the informational movie. It is amazing to consider General MacArthur's 52 year military career. Definitely recommend allowing at least a couple hours to visit. It is right across...More
We parked at the South Deck Second floor of MacArthur Center garage. That is the only validation given at MacArthur Memorial. Admittance to memorial is free but donations are accepted. Hours are 10am-5pm Tues-Sat, 11am-5pm Sunday.

With both the museum and mausoleum for Five Star General MacArthur and his wife and father Three Star General Arthur the Memorial commemorates their family. Located in downtown Norfolk it is a excellent presentation of their lives with personal momentous, honors and of course the...More
We recently moved back to Norfolk after having lived here for six years 25 years ago, and I thought it about time I checked out the MacArthur Memorial. Definitely worth of visit. For me the highlight of the no-charge tour starts with a short film...More
Lots of information about the general, his father the general, and their deeds. The one flaw is that it makes no mention of the Navy, Air force, and Marines that contributed to his success in WWI, WWII, and Korea. Why Norfolk for it? His mom...More

Critique my two-day Hampton Roads sightseeing (15 Replies)
We're coming to Virginia Beach for a wedding in April. We will have two full days to do sightseeing (Thursday and Friday). We are interested in history, Colonial and Civil War and Modern, flowers, animals, really just about anything. We are two older adults, no children with us. There is SO MUCH to see and do in this area that narrowing it down was a very daunting task! I've listed a first draft of what I think would be good below, please feel free to tell me "don't bother" or "do this...More

You are certainly going to take advantage of every moment! Day one's activities easily fill up 10am-4pm, and you may not have enough time to do it all, fortunately Mariners Museum and Va Living are near each other in Newport News and both are convenient to RT 17 (J Clyde Morris Blvd NN) for the drive to Yorktown. The activities you've selected are great, but if you don't have enough time, I would drop Va Living Museum or Yorktown Victory Center. Since day one is a Thursday in April, you...More
Downtown Hotel Recommendation (1 Replies)
Hello, I will be traveling with my two sons, age 6 and 9, to an event at the naval base. Could you please recommend a hotel that is convenient, safe, and preferably within walking distance to the base and other attractions? We would like to visit the Nauticus, USS Wisconsin, and MacArthur memorial. Also, are ride sharing companies readily available for transport to/from the airport and in the downtown area? This is our first time to Norfolk, so I appreciate any advice. Thank you!!

Here are a few hotel choices to consider, check TA reviews and hotel sites for additional information. Springhill Suites Old Dominion University located on Hampton Blvd, 15-20 minutes outside of rush hours to Naval Base or Downtown which are in opposite directions. Near Naval Base consider Quality Inn Naval Base; Downtown Norfolk a few to check out are Sheraton Waterside, Marriott Courtyard, The Main, Residence Inn. All are walking distance to Nauticus, USS Wisconsin, MacArthur Memorial and...More
