To expand on Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s “The Vietnam War,” TPT and the PBS stations of Minnesota launched Minnesota Remembers Vietnam to amplify the state’s thousands of untold stories through an interactive Story Wall, community events, original documentaries and resources that inspire younger generations to explore history.

This unique event is designed to honor the incredible people we’ve met, the powerful stories that have been shared, the healing conversations, and our strong communities that have made the initiative so meaningful and special.

Featuring THE WALL THAT HEALS
OPEN 24-HOURS starting at 9 am June 21st through 3 pm June 24th
Dedicated quiet and reflection period 9 pm – 10 am daily

This brand-new traveling, ¾-scaled replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. allows the souls enshrined on the Memorial to exist among family and friends in the peace and comfort of familiar surroundings. Paper and pencils will be available to make rubbings of engraved names.

While visiting The Wall That Heals, we invite you to build deeper understanding about the lasting impact of the Vietnam War by attending additional daily experiences and special scheduled events.

Join us once again to remember, honor, understand and heal.
