New Site & Facility

Projected Completion Date: Spring 2025

By allocating $13 million for a new military museum, state legislators ensured the construction of a facility befitting the service and sacrifice of Minnesota Veterans. An additional funds will be sought in the upcoming legislative session. 

Another $5 million is needed to fully outfit this facility with the tools and technology to save and share these stories with a statewide audience for generations to come.  To this end, private donors have already committed $5 million.  Leading companies, foundations, and families are now asked to match this commitment. 

Ultimately, the quality and character of the education classrooms, exhibit galleries and public programming rests with everyday Minnesotans who see the value of investing in a future that is as bright as our past.   Online Donation
