The museum is open to the general public as well as military personnel.

Admission is $5.00 for adults and $2 for children ages 6-18 ($12 maximum for a household). Admission is free for children under 6, currently serving military personnel, and members of the Military Historical Society of Minnesota.

The $12 maximum household fee caps what a family will pay to visit the museum. It covers all members of an immediate family living in the same household.

Admission for organized field trips by school and youth groups is $2 per person, including chaperones, if scheduled in advance. Admission for adults on a pre-scheduled organized tour is $3 per person.

Picnic benches are available for lunch and there is an on-post cafeteria nearby that is open to the public.
