This is a year round attraction located just outside of town, lets see, it can be sen from miles away, it's brass color standing on a pile of rust, it has a parking lot, used to have a light in his helmet but the bulb burnt out, and lastly, pigeons love it, I hope that was helpful

This impressive 81 foot or some say 3 story high statue is hard to miss, just be sure you don't. It is a wonderful tribute to the iron miners of northern Minnesota, for those who died and for those who worked very hard in a very difficult occupation to provide a very important natural resource to our country.

You can't miss this impressive 3-story tall tribute to Minnesorta iron mining. On a hill above the highway, you can't miss it . What an image in the western sun! There is a wonderful poem there about the Iron Man and all who lived and worked in the industry. Written by a Slovenian immigrant's daughter Veda Ponikvar (a legend herself),... More

This is a very large memorial statue. It depicts the rugged men who worked and sometimes gave their lives in the iron mines in Northern Minnesota. He stands alone in the middle of a field.

This statue is one of the largest free-standing statues west of the eastern seaboard. It is free to see, located on the edge of a little commuter lot planted with flowers by volunteers along US 169, at the entrance to Minnesota Discovery Center adjacent to the town of Chisholm and a half-block from McDonalds. Nice place to stretch or walk... More

It is a must to stop and take a pic with Iron Man, and then scoot across the highway to Discovery World!

This monument to the miners of the entire iron range stands tall near the western edge of Chisholm, MN across from Iron World. It is huge and cannot be missed as you travel through this area.

Yes, it sure is huge. Enjoyed seeing this massive statue along our way through Chisholm. We would have liked to had time to see the MN Discovery Center too. The Iron Man was good itself, but would have liked to seen more information about him on site. I wonder what possessed them to move it in front of McDonald's. We... More
