The MacArthur Memorial is a museum and research center dedicated to preserving and presenting the story of the life of General of the Army Douglas MacArthur. The Memorial also pays tribute to the millions of men and women who served with General MacArthur in World War I, World War II, and the Korean War.

The museum where General MacArthur is interred is in Norfolk’s nineteenth century City Hall. A monumental rotunda is the General’s and Mrs. MacArthur’s final resting place where they are surrounded by inscriptions, banners, and flags heralding the general’s long and glorious career. Nine separate galleries arranged in two levels circle the rotunda and tell the story of General MacArthur and the millions of American men and women who served in the United States Armed Forces from the Civil War through the Korean War.

This Memorial Hall is located on City Hall Avenue in Norfolk, Virginia. It is free to enter. Enjoy a trip through the memorial as seen from my iPad.
