If you're in the neighbourhood, walk over for a picture, but don't make a special trip. It's a nice statue but unless you're related, not sure what the attraction would be.

He was situated somewhere totally unexpected. Disappointed that he was a replica. Very cool nonetheless.

We were dining at the Norseman when we noticed the statue across the street. It is not worth an extra trip but it can be a brief photo op if nearby. About 5 minute up the road towards the sea from the Viking historic site.
