  • What a lovely surprise in my hometown! The Runestone has been an enigma to all of us locals but after reading everything and looking at the map of the Vikings travels and that fabulous model ship, I am a believer!! It was fun seeing the History Channel special about the Kensington Runestone too! Then, there's the bonus of seeing a real pioneer house, church and two room school house...my 83 year old father went to a school just like that!!
  • I could not believe how much my wife and seven year old son loved this place. They have much more than just the runestone. Several buildings and an old school house that you can walk through. My son keeps asking when we will go back.
  • Our family had a great time at the Runestone Museum. My only feedback would be that the "family rate" was confusing to the person that was working at the time.
  • Great local museum with an authentic Runestone taken to this area by Viking explorers in the 1300s. They came by way of Iceland, Greenland, Hudsons Bay, and then rivers. Plus this place has many other exhibits.
  • This was a great family place to visit. There is a lot more than the Runestone. There is a pioneer village, American Indian artifacts, local artifacts, a replica viking ship, and more Nordic artifacts. There is activities for kids to do and some games to play. The Runestone is controversial piece of history and was very cool to see in person. Check out the History channel special on it as well as the museum. Don't rely on Wikipedia when finding out information, come and see it in person. Was worth the price of admission.
