    I have worked there for over 2 years and its one of the best jobs I've had. The knowledge you acquire at the museum is endless and the visitors are outstanding as far of the knowledge they acquire

    My uncle served under him in WWII, so I thought that General MacArthur was a hero.

    A friend is associated with the Museum, and I'm anxious to experience his professional environment.

    I have Country Music pals who hail from Arkansas - and good friends who live in Little Rock - yet I've never visited either the state or the city. Obviously, Little Rock is Number One on my list of Must-See cities - and the MacArthur Museum, Number One on my list of important sites to tour.

    Douglas MacArthur represents an important time in our history, and I'm interested in seeing the place of his birth.

    This is an amazing museum for Arkansas and Little Rock Civil War history. From the saga of David O. Dodd, who was hung at age 17 to the United Confederate Veterans reunion held in Little Rock in 1911 this museum houses the best of the best. The staff is always courteous and helpful and the changing exhibits are always informative and interesting. A must see for the tourist who is interested in military history!
