Vikings museum opens this week with start of training camp
EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have a museum for their new headquarters.
Fans with tickets to training camp practices can visit the shrine to the team’s 57-year history, beginning on Wednesday. After camp is over, the museum on the sprawling site in Eagan will be open to the public for an admission fee.
In addition to interactive exhibits telling stories of coaches, players, seasons and games, hundreds of artifacts have been assembled from fans and former players among others. Jim Marshall’s shoulder pads are on a shelf near an original turnstile from Metropolitan Stadium. The ball from the “Minneapolis Miracle” playoff game victory in January is affixed to a wall, sticking out from a large photograph of Stefon Diggs making the last-second catch.
