This museum has a great collection and presentation of one of the greatest Generals that has ever lived. The museum chronicles his life in a very logical manner. Interactive and educational, a must see and a quick walk across the street from the MacArthur Mall.

So much to see about how his military life parallels the military history of the 20th Century. Very moving exhibits, especially that of the battle for the Philippines. This is an impressive memorial. Within walking distance of the Hampton Roads Naval Museum and Battleship Wisconsin.
