Backstory and Context
When approaching the building, one may look at the brick pathway and notice names of service members. The MacArthur Foundation invites visitors to purchase memorial bricks to honor family members who have served in the armed forces. Approaching the entrance, a visitor will encounter a statue of General MacArthur standing proudly. The statue is an exact replica of one standing on the parade ground at West Point.
Inside, a visitor could occupy themselves in several ways. They could choose to view the museum, archives and research center. If one would like to learn more about General MacArthur they could stop by the education center or theater to view a series of brief films.
People can enter the Rotunda to pay their respect to MacArthur as it is the final resting place for both he and his wife Jean.
