Paul Bunyan Historical Museum

If this Paul Bunyan Statue ever stood up he would be the world's tallest but instead he's kneeling and inviting visitors to sit in his palm. The statue, made of rebar, fiberglass, and 4.5 tons of welded steel, was built in 1980s by Dean Krotzer with the help of his six grown sons and a son-in-law.

The site includes a small museum with a random collection of donated items.

Both the museum and the area around the statue are accessible. 

Parking is available on the street. Paul Bunyan  47.00334, -94.73026


  1. I believe I have a photo *somewhere* with either me or Jimmy sitting in that palm! That is one big statue (as Paul Bunyan should be, right?)

  2. Tony wouldn't sit in the hand. He picks the funniest things that he thinks make him look silly. :-D
