The whole span of Gen. MacArthur's life is thoughtfully displayed. I learned a lot about this amazing American. Plan to spend at least 3 hours. Recommend to anyone who wants to understand the sacrifices made for freedom.

A wonderful place to learn about General MacArthur. The movie was well worth seeing. Pay your respects to General MacArthur and his wife Jean. Get your parking ticket stamped for free parking.
