Information on:

Runestone Museum

206 Broadway Street

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.
Enter Fort Alexandria and visit several authentic log buildings, an 1880 country school house, and view the forty-foot viking ship, the Snorri. Experience the changing of the seasons in the display of tools and farm equipment used by an earlier generation.

The Runestone Gift Shop features Minnesota and Alexandria souvenirs, viking and runestone information, books, t-shirts, viking helmets and swords, and unique gifts, which many of them are by local artists, authors, and craftsmen.

Oh my gosh, so much fun! The scavenger hunt throughout the museum was a hit. The outside buildings were a bonus to an already great experience. Learned a lot, kids had a blast. Also really enjoyed the cell phone tour.
