I love this piece of history. One must do a lot of reading and study before making a decision on whether it's real or not. Being a Viking myself I believe in it. On display at the great museum in town.

Be sure to ask questions as the staff are happy to give you the "inside scoop" on the rune stone. Tons of history to appreciate!!

The Runestone is prominently displayed in the museum and there is a nice video to watch about its discovery so the Kensington Runestone and the Runestone Museum are one in the same. Check out the comments on thekensingtonrunestone.com and the newporttower.com if you want another opinion on runestones in North America.
