New Facility Planned: Targeted for 2025-26

In allocating an initial $32 million for a new Military Museum, state legislators ensured construction of a facility befitting the service and sacrifice of Minnesota Veterans. Still, the quality and character of the education classrooms, exhibit galleries and public programming ultimately rests with everyday Minnesotans who step up and financially support this remarkable 32-acre site and 40,000 square foot Museum & Library dedicated to veterans.
