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.

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

Loved the visitor center movie, the artifacts and the Memorial's history of this great American. Loved the free price which is rare amongst so many museums now adays. It was a great history lesson of WW1, WW2, and Korea. Worth the 90 minute visit. Don't...More
