Jolly Green Giant Museum

They do have everything Green Giant here, including, apparently, election materials from the Giant's run for office. No word on what position he was aiming for.

Jolly Green Giant Museum

Museum with history of Jolly Green Giant displays. Videos of old commercials. Statues. Not huge, but was a fun visit.

Jolly Green Giant Museum
