Down stairs in the Hibbing Memorial Building. Wonderful displays and a knowledgeable curator to answer questions. When I stopped in there were several old timers around to add comments. Worthwhile stop and worthy of a return visit.

Many glassed displays with visual artifacts, news clippings, authentic antique items displayed during the era in which they were used. A large scale model gives visitors a better understanding of the town that moved. Very clean, beautifully displayed, great historical value for everyone.

This was a nice, informative stop as we re-explored the area my husband was born. They also had a celebration on Main Street when we happened by, but not much was happening until much later in the day so we missed most of that.

Friendly and helpful staff walked us around the entire place (one large room) and gave us a detailed oral history of Hibbing.

Very interesting place to visit. Has a model of old Hibbing. The entire town was moved in the 1920's, 1930's and even into the 40's and 50's.

This is a very interesting historical museum in Hibbing. The society has done an excellent job of showing a great many historical items of the city. I felt the best part of the exhibit was the layout of the town as it was before they...More
