Never in a million years did I think I'd be walking by the World's Largest Jigsaw Puzzle this weekend.  But, as luck would have it, our last-minute "last day of summer vacation" to Jordan, Minnesota, made this unknown bucket list item a reality.

Here's where you can see the World's Largest Jigsaw Puzzle in Minnesota

In case you didn't know, an hour from Owatonna is a very yellow building that is Minnesota's Largest Candy Store at 20430 Johnson Memorial Dr in Jordan.  Until the pandemic, I had no idea that this place existed but it is now one of my kids' favorite places to go and I'll just warn you...it is MASSIVE!  There is SOOOO much candy inside.  I even found some of my favorites from when I was a kid that I completely forgot even existed.

What I wasn't expecting though on this last-minute end-of-summer vacation trip was the World's Largest Jigsaw Puzzle.  We are jigsaw geeks at my house and we almost always have a puzzle taking up space on our dining room table so this was pretty cool for our family.

World's Largest Jigsaw Puzzle Ever Put Together is in Minnesota

Check out this HUGE jigsaw puzzle! It is actually the world's largest jigsaw puzzle ever put together and is in the Guinness Book of World Records and it was put together by a guy in Mankato, Minnesota. You can enjoy the photos below but if you'd like to see it in person, it is just a short drive to Jordan, Minnesota, and is located outside of Minnesota's Largest Candy Store!

If you love puzzles, you MUST check out the puzzle collection at Minnesota's Largest Candy Store!

As you walk through the candy store, look up.  There are puzzles EVERYWHERE in this place that you can buy.  And, I forgot to take a photo of it, but there are these pullout shelves that are piled high with puzzles that you can browse and take home to enjoy.  This is by far the biggest puzzle collection I have ever seen in my entire life.
