A lot of old military memorabilia, from weapons and uniforms to posters and medals. The focus is on 20th Century and later, and on American-involved wars. Even if military things aren't your thing, you're bound to find something of interest here. And you can't beat...More

By chance we stopped in to this little museum. Impressive collection put together by local collectors. The WWII Hitler items were very eerie. Enjoyed talking to the gentleman staffing the museum. Very informative.

The Aliveo Military Museum is a small museum in a storefront in Red Wing. The collection covers from the Civil War up through Vietnam. It's a must for history buffs.

Who would've thought that a small inconspicuous storefront in downtown Red Wing could house such a great collection of military memorabilia. The collection spans from the Civil War to modern day military conflicts. Aliveo is a great place to relive history with newspaper clippings, uniforms,...More
