“Favorite Museum”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We live in the area and my son begs us to go to this museum every time we are looking for something to do. It is well done and very informative. This museum has fueled a love of history in my son. It's great!

“Interesting man”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This memorial is right in the middle of Norfok near the Crysler Museum, the harbour, baseball field and mall. Good parking. Lots of history and pictures and he is buried there. If you like war history and want to know more about American war this is the place.

“Great Museum”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Well laid out museum with easy to read posters on General MacArthur's life from his boyhood to his death. The general and his wife are entombed in the museum. Very easy to get to with parking within easy walking distance. Would recommend for anyone visiting Norfolk.

“Comprehensive History Of General MacArthur”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

The memorial houses numerous artifacts related to the General as well as the remains of he and his wife. It is a very educational experience and well worth the time. Plan on spending roughly two hours here.
