Penguin statue. Cement Penguin

This concrete penguin was built in 1989, but it looks much older, more like it was built in the 1930s. We were unaware this was a multimedia display when we were there in 2006, so we did not hear the narration, but it was impressive just the same.

If big penguins are your thing, Cut Bank awaits you.

[Bob Tubbs, 07/04/1999]

He's 27 feet tall -- still impressive for a penguin, 10,000 lbs of concrete over a metal frame, standing on a rounded base that reads "Coldest Spot in the Nation."

Cement Penguin

If you press the "button" on the 60 foot cement penguin in Cut Bank, MT, you can enjoy fuzzy, inaudible english whilst licking a soft serve.
