Shown on the right is our temporary home in the Hilton Hotel in Rochester, Minnesota. Enter on the street level and proceed just past the registration desk.

The goal of the Veterans & Emergency Services Museum is to honor those who keep us safe, both at home and abroad. This includes military service personnel, both active and retired, and those working in the areas of fire protection and law enforcement (police and sheriff), and emergency medical responders.
