Minnesota Veterans & Emergency Services Museum
The Minnesota Veterans and Emergency Services Museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Our mission is to honor the men, women, and institutions who protect our way of life, and to preserve and interpret their histories. In so doing, our hope is that visitors will learn to understand and appreciate those who serve their countrymen through the armed and emergency services.
The museum's changing exhibits and programs will tell stories of military and civilian service from the 1850s to the present day. Its archives will allow visitors to reflect upon first-hand accounts of service recorded by our partner organization, the Scott Hosier World War II Roundtable, and to view associated artifacts.
Now is the time to join the Minnesota Veterans and Emergency Services Museum. Membership in this non-profit organization will show your support of armed and emergency service providers and help create a museum worthy of their legacy. Whatever level of support you choose, your participation will fund development of an exciting new venue honoring those who dedicated their lives to the safety and security of others. This state-of-the-art cultural facility will offer unique opportunities for young and old to explore and learn.
Some of the museum’s planned features are:
- Research library
- Conservation lab
- Coffee shop
- Meeting facilities
- Event venues
- Peace gardens
- Indoor memorial
