Where are we going today?

Welcome to the Runestone Museum, located in downtown Alexandria, Minnesota. We invite you to stop by and tour historic Fort Alexandria, take your picture with the country\'s biggest viking, and see the world famous Kensington Runestone. For awhile you will live in the past, so walk a little slower, talk a little slower, and enjoy the exhibition on Norse history, the Native American exhibit, the Minnesota wildlife display, the display of early pioneer life, and the hands-on children\'s area.

    My wife really enjoyed this museum. My twelve year old son did not really enjoy it. I am not a museum guy so I guess I could take it or leave it. The lady who sold us our tickets was great. She took us in and gave us background stories to get us started. The gift shop was not great. It had no selection and horrible prices even for a gift shop. I thought it could be awesome since it was Vikings, but was disappointed. Six bucks a person to get in, so what the heck. I would not need to go back again, but it passed the time and I learned some things....Read More

    Small but really great! Worth the price, it have a very small Viking portion, which is why we went in, BUT, the rest of the museum was great too, and it was very interesting to know more history about the pioneer VS Indian relations in the 1800s to present.

About thirty minutes if you just walk through and look at the exhibits and leave.
