We stopped on our way out to Yellowstone. It was almost dark, and the museum was closed, but it was still fun. You can even climb up under the Jolly Green Giant!

You gotta see the Green Giant! Convenient access to the interstate makes it a great and short stop. They’re currently building a new welcome center which looks amazing and will be a move addition when completed! PS. Don’t forget Sprout

How can you not stop if you're on a road trip?! This was fun, informative. The grounds are well maintained. Bonus, there was a youth rodeo taking place just behind the park when we were there!
