The Kensington Rune Stone, a Minnesota mystery, lives at the Runestone Museum in downtown Alexandria, MN. Found in the late 1800s by a farmer, the stone has runic writing with a date of 1362. Scientific research as well as controversy continue to this day for the local artifact--was it left by Nordic explorers? If not, who made it and why? Visitors are encouraged to make up their own minds about its authenticity. The Runestone Museum is also a regional history museum with extensive exhibits indoors as well as a seasonal outdoor campus housing a recreated Fort Alexandria with authentic buildings from the 1800s. There is a Children s Discovery Room, hands-on activities and a scavenger hunt with prizes. The Penny Press is located in the museum lobby, costs $.50/penny and is a 2-sided design (one is the design you choose, the back is the museum logo and website). For more information, follow the museum on social media @KRunestone or go to the website: www.runestonemuseum.org.
