I am not a war buff like my husband; however, this museum was so awesome! I learned so much about World War I and II. It had such beautiful artifacts and information that I never knew.

General Douglas MacArthur was quite a man and soldier. This museum does a fantastic job through 9 galleries telling the story of his life and military career. This is a memorial and therefore is the final resting place of the general and his wife. The...More
