“Burial place of 'The American Caesar'.”
Reviewed 15 March 2012

Love him or hate him, there's no question; he was a 'rock star', and he knew it. There's all sorts of reminders of his life including, in a glass case by themselves, his slouch hat, sun glasses and corn cob pipe. A great place to pay your respect to a great American.

“Loved the General MacArthur Memorial”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

The rotunda and dome are beautiful. The WWI & WWII and other war exhibits help you realize some of what war life was like.

“Its A Fine Building But Even Though I Like History, Its A Bit Narrow”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

The location is handy. The exhibits are okay but not truly exciting. Many of the younger folks are not going to know who this General was. Its a nice place to relax however if you are on a whirlwind tour.
