Greyhound Bus Museum
Entering the exhibit space, visitors pass through a tunnel that comes alive with auto sounds of 1914 and continues on with a Hupmobile that could not be sold and the men and machines that created Greyhound Bus Lines. Using pictorial displays, hundreds of artifacts and memorabilia, audio visual presentations plus a movie of the “Greyhound Story – From Hibbing to Everywhere,” the museum traces the history of the bus industry.
Interesting facts: The Greyhound Bus Museum was the inspiration of former Hibbing city councilor and local grocer Gene Nicolelli. He discovered a commemorative plaque from Greyhound corporation in the city hall attic and delved right in to the history of the company. Mr. Nicolelli almost single-handedly raised money to build the museum and acquire all manner of Greyhound ephemera, souvenirs, company uniforms, documents, objects and advertising materials – not to mention buses! The museum was renamed in his honor after his passing in 2014.
