Largest Viking in the World


LARGEST VIKING IN THE WORLD
Alexandria, Minnesota
See the largest Viking in the world in Alexandria, Minnesota, :The Birthplace of America."This statue stands 28 feet tall and weighs more than 12,000 pounds. It accompanied the famed Kensington Runestone to the New York World's Fair in 1965 and was then brought to Alexandria, where it now stands at the north end of Main St. and calls attention to the Runestone Monument nearby.
