I remember the giant from commercials when I was a little girl in the 60's. So I definitely wanted to see it. I got there to late to go in the museum which closes at 3 Monday-Friday. It was still a sight to see.

This was a perfect mid-stop to Austin. Get out and stretch, read the various markers, and take a pic or two of the Jolly Green Giant, and before you think it's silly, think about it. Wheee else will you have an opportunity to see something this unique and different?!

The statue is pretty cool and a really cool place to take pics with your family. There isnt a lot else in the area to offer but it's only a hop skip and jump off of I90...it's also a quick walk to the statue from the parking area so easy access for pretty much anyone. You can spend a few minutes or make it a longer stay and have a picnic or grab a bite to eat at the Dairy Queen that is located right next to the statue location...I would suggest stopping here even if it's just for a minute to get off the interstate to stretch your legs :)

Fun to read about it and take pictures of it with people under his legs!! Nice place to stop if you have been traveling for a while.

We stopped here on our way west. The park is a few miles from the freeway. Great 15-20 minute stop. It was pretty busy when we were there. They have a cute gift shop and I bought a Blue Earth hat pin.
