My husband and I really weren't sure what to expect to see at a place devoted to the Greyhound Bus. But what a pleasant surprise it turned out to be! We arrived around 10:40 and saw a sign saying it opened at 11:00. But a lady inside saw us and said to come inside anyway. The admission is reasonable in cost for what is offered. You enter the exhibit by listening to a short introduction. Then as you move through the exhibit, you trigger other recorded explanations. There is a dated video to watch while sitting in actual bus seats inside a simulated "bus". It was a good overview of how the company evolved from its start to about the mid 80's. After that, you can see several versions of the actual buses and go inside them. Even the restrooms have pictures on the walls of ads for the company through the years. If you are into nostalgia, or even if you aren't, I think you will enjoy this little gem of a museum about the iconic bus company that most people probably have some connection to. It's worth the detour to see!

A lot of buses parked inside and outside, perhaps there are some types that you rode.

Nice display inside of badges, uniforms, bus models.

A lot of smaller bus models for sale, that would make a gift to a younger child.

No notice on door that the Museum was closed, only message on door stated open @ 11 a.m. We waited until 11 went back still closed, called contact number & found out the museum was closed for season. The message should have been on the door

We went to this museum with a nine person group from 7 to 48. The guys liked the restored busses along with the kids ( they can get inside them ). Ladies did not enjoy very much of this one. Prices are fair, it's interesting, especially for anyone who enjoys transportation history or local history. Not bad but not great.

I was not too sure what I would find at a Bus Museum, but this turned out to be an interesting stop. There are several fully restored buses that you can get in to see how things have changed over the years. Lots of signs and displays illustrate the history of the Greyhound Bus Company. The biggest drawback to the whole museum is the fact that many of the signs were not proof read before they were put up, and now someone has gone in with a red marker and corrected them--just makes the place look tacky.
