    Anything to see - worth a visit to Winter Park?

    I'm retired military living out of Minnesota since I was 18.
    Coming back for a family function and to enjoy MN.
    Was wondering if it's worth a drive over to Winter Park to look around?
    Do they have a museum or a visitors' center?

    If you time it right you might be able to see Brett Farve ;D

    You could have your picture taken by the ship.



    BTW

    Thanks for the years of service

    I don't know about a visitors center or anything, but if there's a strong wind, stay away from the indoor practice facility. Seriously though, ours is made out of aluminum panels, NOT metal pipes like dallas' was.

    I don't think there is. At least not that I am aware of. But yeah you can take a picture by the ship. Otherwise I think its a pretty hard place to get past the front door. You could always call to see.
    Would be nice if they did offer up tours on certain days of the week.

    Thanks for the info.
    I may still stop by and get my picture by Brett Farve and get an autograph from the Viking ship...or was that the other way around?

    I don't believe there are any tourist/fan-related exhibits or activities at Winter Park, as others have noted.
    But you can take tours of the Dome, if you're inclined.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    You could look at Chillys Escalade.
