LA Military History

History buffs can always appreciate a good museum, and the Fort MacArthur Military Museum is one of the best in the area. It portrays the history of Fort MacArthur, which was given the task of protecting the Los Angeles harbor against danger during the years between 1914 and 1974. As you stroll along the galleries of the museum, you'll get a look at how the U.S. army protected the home front, and in particular, this important military port, against invasion during wartime. There's an affordable entrance fee, which helps to maintain the museum.
