The MacArthur Museum is a great way to learn about the military history of Arkansas. The state of Arkansas participated in several wars that gripped the United States in 19th and 20th centuries. Some of the famous ones are the Civil War, the two World Wars, the Korean war etc. The museum aims to pay a tribute to the warriors who fought and lost their lives in the wars. It is housed in the Tower Building of the Little Rock Arsenal. The collections in the museum are divided into galleries devoted to specific wars. Weapons, vehicles used for transporting personnel, military vehicles, photographs taken during the wars are a part of the exhibits here. Short films and documentaries about the wars are also aired here. You will also find an Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Historical Marker in the grounds adjoining the museum. There also is an Arkansas Korean War Memorial in the MacArthur Park close to the museum premises.
- The museum is closed on all major holidays in the country.

Bit old, but good history even with three stars if you have 1hr. Stop by
Took a friend from the Philippines to visit. He loved it. He didn't realize that General MacArthur was born in Little Rock.
Just reopened. Did a good job of redoing this museum. Contains a lot of information.
I was surprised one nice lady who is monitoring the museum was studying in one of my city universities.
Free museum, excellent history and displays. Must see.
