Greyhound Bus Origin Center

We were stranded four days in Hibbing when our car broke down in 2007. We were with our son, who was about 20 months at the time. He was heavily into all types of transportation but his absolute favorite was (and still is) buses. So naturally we took him to the bus museum.

It was the off season so it was really, really quiet. We were the only people there. They were so excited to have visitors. They called the guy who has live greyhounds so that Robert could pet them. Robert didn't really give a crap about the live greyhounds. All he wanted to do was see more buses.

And boy does the bus museum have buses. They have fully restored examples from every era including displays that show the context of the times (World War II soldiers boarding buses etc.) The museum did offered plenty of hands-on excitement for the boy, including a "sculpture" of hometown hero Bob Dylan in a bus driver uniform, and an exhibit of buses converted to campers, complete with spooky greyhound cut-outs having a picnic.
