Minnesota's Greatest Generation

Step into the lives of Minnesota’s Greatest Generation in this 6,000-square-foot exhibit. True stories from this amazing group of people will take you through each era and leave you inspired.

Members of Minnesota’s Greatest Generation are people we know — they are our grandparents, our parents and our next-door neighbors. Yet, we may have never heard their stories. These remarkable people — who grew up during the Depression, came of age during World War II and participated in the post-war boom — created a lasting legacy that has shaped all of us who have come after.

Highlights:

  • View classic film clips in a 1930s-style movie theater
  • Get behind the counter of a 1930s soda fountain
  • Watch a recreation of a World War II combat flight in a C-47 plane
  • Join a “Rosie the Riveter” style assembly line packing ammunition shells
  • See an M-8 armored vehicle and a 1955 Ford sedan, both produced at the St. Paul Ford plant
