On April 11, 1964, the eyes of the world were on Norfolk, VA, as General of the Army Douglas MacArthur was laid to rest in the Rotunda of the MacArthur Memorial – a museum dedicated to his life and legacy.

Fifty years later, the museum has expanded into one of the premier institutions in the United States dedicated to preserving and presenting the history of World War I, World War II, the Occupation of Japan, and the Korean War.

To date, the Memorial has served more than five million visitors, scholars, and students.

April 11-12, 2014 the MacArthur Memorial will be celebrating 50 years of service to Norfolk and the world with a series of public programs.
