“Great MN Attraction.”

Big Ole Viking Statue
Reviewed 21 October 2012

My wife and I finally visited Big Ole after it being on our agenda three times. There are few to no signs leading the way to the statue, so map it out before you head out. Knowing the history behind the statue is also a great thing to research before you head out. There is a great photo deck that (if no one is behind you) makes for some great pictures. It is another one of our great (BIG) roadside attractions in Minnesota and was enjoyable none the less.

Everyone should see how really big it is, and have a picture took by it! It would of been fun to watch them move it when they did. Alexandria has beautiful lakes and stores, many antique stores resonably priced.Great shopping, great parks for the kids.

The Big Ole Viking Statue is an Americana treasure. There it is, just standing by the side of the road in Northern Alexandria. It's huge! It opitimizes Minnesota, and it's free. Just pull over and have your picture taken with it. It's one of those quirky things, like the giant arrows, that makes Minnesota such a fun place to visit.

He is bigger than life and right on the main drag so you can't miss him. A must see in Alexandria!
