Current Special Exhibit

Over Here, Over There

To mark the centennial of U.S. involvement in World War I, on April 8, 2017 the MacArthur Memorial will open a new special exhibit entitled Over Here, Over There. This new exhibit will explain the causes of the U.S. entry into World War I and will explore wartime propaganda, the social fabric of America, the training of the American Expeditionary Force (A.E.F.) and the major campaigns fought by the A.E.F. The exhibit will also discuss the American homefront, including local efforts in the Hampton Roads area.
