HERREID MILITARY MUSEUM…honoring all who served. Open Monday thru Friday from 8 am to 5 pm and Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm
The HERREID MILITARY MUSEUM shares the personal stories of brave men and women from Rock County
and the surrounding region as they responded to the nation’s call and entered the military to protect our freedoms.
The museum opened its doors in July 2009 with the focus on the stories of WWII. The displays complimented the stories that were told 2007 Ken Burns’ documentary, “THE WAR.” This epic documentary took six years of
research to tell the stories of citizens in military service and on the home front from four American cities (Mobile, Al; Sacramento, CA; Waterbury, CN; and Luverne, MN). The museum expands on the stories with exhibits
featuring artifacts, photographs, videodocumentary, memorabilia and written testimonies.
The HERREID MILITARY MUSEUM expanded its displays in 2011 with the addition
of WWI and in 2013 with the Civil War and Spanish-American War. Today, museum staff is continuing to develop a second floor of exhibits which feature the stories of military service including the Korean War, Vietnam, Cold War and the War on Terror.
Third Floor is now open!
