What Other Are Saying

This was by far, a very interesting experience. We had no idea how extensive the venue was. The buildings on the grounds, the church, schoolhouse, post office and the huge barn type building housing a Viking Ship display… very cool. There is an extensive gift shop where we were able to find more reading material to learn more about the Rune Stone….❤️

It was enjoyable and I actually learned something. Worth the money!

What a great little museum! They ladies at the desk are so friendly and informative. The Runestone itself is fascinating!

It’s our annual tradition to visit the Runestone Museum . Our family loves the property and all of the wonderful enriching opportunities, in a family friendly atmosphere.

This is a very nice well maintained and clean museum where the kids can spend a half day. So can you and your spouse.

WOW! What an awesome museum! Please take time to see and take everything in! Gift store is great so was the staff!

We found our visit to the Runestone Museum to be very interesting. There was a lot to see and a good variety of subjects from Native American artifacts to Scandinavian and more. We enjoyed the buildings in the yard as well.

The kids loved all of the different Viking items!

Awesome. Stayed longer than expected! Great for whole family.

A lot of great stuff packed into a small place. Something for everyone. My kids loved doing the scavenger hunt, while I enjoyed some of the MANY spots (over 100 I think) on the audio tour available by phone or device. Just the kids room in the back is worth a visit, with several Viking games that will keep you scratching your head for awhile, an area to write and learn about runes, and a fun dress-up closet. We were here in the winter and didn't even get to go outside, but still spent a few hours and it was totally worth it. We'll definitely go back in the summer.
