New Site & Facility

Projected Completion Date: Spring 2023

Virtual flyover of the new site & facility: Video

In allocating $13 million for a new Military Museum, state legislators ensured construction of a facility befitting the service and sacrifice of Minnesota Veterans.

Another $8 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, the KAHR Foundation has already committed $3 million.  Now, leading companies, foundations and families are 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

The names of these donors, or donations made in memory of others, will be prominently displayed ($1,000+, $5,000+, $10,000+ levels) upon entry into this new 40,000 square foot facility.  

Throughout the design and construction phase, the Museum will host online gatherings, via Zoom, to discuss interpretation, inclusion and overall themes.  Email Sign-up to receive invites

If you’d like to assist in other ways including volunteer opportunities, please email us.  We are seeking to significantly bolster our collection of artifacts related to the Global War on Terrorism.  A list of other items we are seeking (and those we are not) is available here.
