Minnesota Vikings Ship

We went to the Viking ship today and it's overgrown, with no sails. The place did not have any markings for the Vikings -- they may have moved.

The team moved out; now the location is a commercial sports training facility. Minnesota Vikings branding has been removed.

Minnesota Vikings Ship

The Viking ship is outside the MN Vikings training facility. It was in pretty poor shape but has been refurbished. Don't think it was ever sea worthy. You can climb on it for a good photo. If you show up a the right time you may also run into a few football players as they are coming and going from practice.
