“Big”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

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.

“Awesomely Awesome!”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

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!

Funny statue, but far from how a real viking would have looked like.
