Don't miss the MN Military Museum at Camp Ripley. First it is an amazing museum that spans Civil War/Dakota Conflict to present.

The volunteers that work there answering questions are very helpful and... More

They have around 8 tanks (three have steps for you get onto so you can climb on them!), 8 helicopters, a bunch of military trucks (and an amphibious duck too), a great display... More

I had an opportunity to visit the Minnesota Military Museum recently. What a wonderful surprise. I've lived in Minnesota most of my life and I had no idea that this museum was of such high quality. I have visited military museums all over the world, and it ranks as among the best I've seen. It was comprehesive, well designed, interesting... More
