  • Easy to get to from central train station if you come in on the train, only $5 entry on a concession ticket, and a great place to learn about the history of Australia in the pacific theatre in World War II as well as Korea
  • I done never seen MacArthur there. Thinks he must have beens outs having lunch
  • The Macarthur Museum is a little hidden gem in Brisbane CBD. The displays, including General Macarthur's desk, information about the Aussie women who married American soldiers, and the technology used for secret codes provide a very interesting and unique insight into life in Brisbane during WWII. The staff and volunteers are very helpful and the low entrance fee is very good value.
  • MacArthur was a American that why do tha au Brisbane gov build a special museum to memorize him? Brisbane was plunged into WW2 majorly for a supply base of military necessaries
  • Best museum in Brisbane. If you get a chance, see if Ron Rees will talk with you. A very important part of our history.
