Information on:

Greyhound Bus Museum

1201 Greyhound Boulevard
218-263-5814

Hibbing is recognized as the birthplace of the bus industry in the United States. 

Visitors can now see and hear the story at Hibbing's newest attraction which includes seventeen historical buses.

To start the tour, visitors pass through a tunnel that comes alive with auto sounds of 1914 and the Hupmobile that could not be sold.

The story continues with the men and machines that created Greyhound Bus Lines using pictorial displays, hundreds of artifacts and memorabilia, audio-visual presentations, and the video  "The Greyhound Story" from Hibbing to everywhere.

A diorama of WW II illustrates how Greyhound contributed to the war effort. Other exhibits help the visitor understand how, with a Hupmobile car they could not sell and a two mile route, Greyhound grew to be the largest bus company in the world.

If you are interested in greyhound buses and their history, this is the place to be. They have lots of old buses and a bug museum. Call ahead to make sure they are open, Don't go off of the times on Google.

I have to give this place 5 Stars! The cost is $5.00 per person or $15.00 per family! It's SO worth it if you love Greyhound Buses, old vehicles, their history & chrome! If you were a kid again these buses would be your school jungle gym in this museum! Everything is at your fingertips when you climbed aboard these huge retired gas motored camels of the Northern Midwest that eventually became a Nationwide Icon!! "Go Greyhound!" As a teen I remember my siblings & I traveling out of the Minneapolis or St Paul, MN hub many times to visit our Grandparents that lived in other states (North Dakota & Missouri). It was much cheaper then flying and I must admit, the bus stops along the way were quite interesting as well as the people we met! Take the time to stop in, I admit the museum and it's grounds are showing some wear & tear so please DONATE! Remember, you have free range to explore the buses outside and then come on in to see the restored buses through the decades inside, all the uniforms the drivers wore over the years, the photos & statues of the actual dog, the greyhound "Princess" that started the brand logo and the story as to how the Greyhound Bus Company started along with so much other info! I honestly wasn't sure how I'd feel about the place since the museum never truly made my list of "places to see" and doesn't have a multitude of reviews going for it even though they are mostly positive. Obviously my opinion has completely changed. If you ever rode the Greyhound Bus, once, twice, many times or was born and raised here in Minnesota take the time, spend the $5.00 (or the Family price) to check out this wonderful little museum in Hibbing, MN!

Great museum! Our entire group- aged 8 to 80 - enjoyed it. Kids loved touring inside the old buses. Adults enjoyed the historical information about when buses started. Definitely a worthwhile stop on the trip. The staff was also so hospitable and kind. We arrived 15 minutes before closing, and they stayed open later to allow us to tour.

It was closed when I was there, but just walking around the outside was worth stopping
