View 35 large-scale, color portraits of these veterans in the new exhibit “AMVETS Post #5: Photographs by Xavier Tavera,” Sat., Sept. 23, 2017-Sun., April 22, 2018 at the Minnesota History Center. #veteran #photography

Due to popular demand, the “WW1 America” exhibit will be extended, and will now close on Veteran’s Day, Saturday, Nov. 11, 2017. All veterans and active military are admitted free of charge on the final day.

Today, the Minnesota Valley Model T Club is visiting the “WW1 America” exhibit. Close to a dozen Model T cars will be parked on the lawn where visitors can speak with owners and see the cars up close. Several of the cars date to 1913 and 1914, with one or two dating to 1911 and 1912. Many models will be on hand, including a rare speedster (pictured.) Members of the Minnesota Valley Model T Club helped to reconstruct the WW1 Model T ambulance featured in the exhibit.
Cars on view at #mnhistorycenter from 2-5pm today.
