Burg Altena, Germany
HIBBING HISTORICAL SOCIETY MUSEUM

The museum contains a number of interesting displays including:
• A movie as you enter. This movie gives you a perspective of the time by the people who lived there. This is followed by a program about the rich history of the St. Louis County Fair.
• A model of Hibbing as it looked in 1893, when the town was platted out.
• The Topic Islands which use artifacts and pictures to illustrate various themes of life throughout days gone by.
• Revolving displays that will allow the museum to exhibit items from other museums as well as items of local interest.
• Logging and mining tools of the past are also on display.
• The Hibbing Almanac takes one through time decade by decade. This "timeline" shares some of the important events in Hibbing as well as globally.
• Our "Little House", helps one to imagine just how all of these buildings were so carefully moved. It also allows a view into a house of yesteryear.
• The most celebrated display in the museum is the scale model of North Hibbing as it looked in 1913. This 8' by 16' model is accompanied by a ten-minute narration. The narration, with the help of colored lights, tells of the history of this unique town and why it was forced to move.
