Bring the Armory to Life!
Construction begins August 2024!

It served our community for decades. Opening to the public early 2026, the reconstructed Duluth Armory will return with music, a museum, local food and diverse arts programs. The new Armory will celebrate the history of this building and all it has meant to our region, from community gatherings and military training to one of the last concerts by Buddy Holly and the spark that ignited the music of Bob Dylan.

Help bring the Armory to life with your support.

Celebrating History

A museum will honor the Armory's past and its connection to the Iron Range that launched Bob Dylan's music.
