Owner description: What weighs 8,000 pounds, is 55 feet tall and wears a size 78 shoe? The largest statue of the Jolly Green Giant, that's what.
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Two years ago, we happened upon the Jolly Green Giant and we had to visit him again! This is a perfect stop to stretch your legs for a 5-15 minute visit. Climb a few steps to stand under the giant and get that family photo, you will not regret it!

Please note that the gift shop is not open on Sundays and the bathrooms are portable toilets.

This "attraction" is mainly a good way to break up a monotonus drive across Minnesota en route to The Badlands or Custer State Park. We were looking forward to a family photo with Jolly Green for a possible future Christmas card. Problem was we were the only family at the attraction so there were no other tourists to ask to snap a picture for us. There is a picnic area at the attraction. You can climb the stairs and stand on the platform. Keep in mind your family photo will be dwarfed by the giant if you include all of him in the photo. This attraction is visible from the interstate but we did have a little trouble navigating to it. I'm glad we made the effort to stop here. We got some silly photos for the scrapbook.

A great place to see something different and stretch your legs. The giant is super green and easy to spot from I90. Some friends of ours told us to be on the lookout for him. There is a little museum on site as well. We were even interviewed for a radio show about visitors at the park. It was fun!

Even in the rain, the Green Giant Statue is a must see if ever traveling along I-90 in Southern Minnesota. The statue sits just off the interstate and makes for great photo-opportunities for couples and families alike. The attraction is free and there is plenty of free parking right up next to it. Travel into town to the museum if you want to learn more about the Green Giant company, if time doesn't allow, there is a few facts on the sign that will help you “impress your friends”. Another great Minnesota road side attraction.

A fun stop on our trip out west. Statue is well-maintained. Close to I90. Stairs that you can climb for photo op.
