Nicely located in a historic building and in MacArthur Park. Interesting little museum. There was a wonderful exhibition of WW2 photography and a special exhibit to the Willy's Jeep also.

“1943 Jeep in Historic Building”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

This museum is FREE and so is the parking. It is next to the Arkansas Center for the Arts so you can go to the Art Museum while the military history buff goes to the Military Museum. They have a real 1943 Jeep and the complete history. An exhibit on the Civil War Soldier reunion in the early 1900's. There are some excellent photos of Vietnam and of course an informative Exhibit of MacArthur. Beautiful park setting.
