This is a nice historic site for a quick visit. Been a while since I have seen the exhibits offered. The grounds are lovely and it sits in the Quapaw Historic District. Lots of lovely homes in the area to see.

This historic building and grounds has so much history. From the civil war to WWII. Nothing fancy, just simple history of Arkansas' role in these battles. Take about 2-3 hours to see the building, grounds and movie on Gen. McArthur, who was born on these...More

A lot of interesting information about Arkansas' military history. I could only stay about an hour, but would have stayed longer if I could. I'll go back if I ever get back to Little Rock.

This museum is a strange mix of an historic armory building, birthplace of Douglas McArthur and museum to his life, and a lot of other exhibits about wars in the last couple hundred years, with emphasis on the role of Arkansas. The exhibits on McArthur...More

The museum is free and worth the stop. It's not just MacArthur history, but history of past conflicts in general. The museum flows well and we easily spent an hour learning, reading, and discussing the exhibits. Highly recommend as a historical stop.

What a surprising find.... had no idea the information available about this sad part of our history and the history of Korea. Well worth stopping at this park to read all the information on the memorial walls.
