Starbuck Depot
and School Museum

A Place to Gather and Remember

The Starbuck Depot Museum serves a center for the community of Starbuck to gather and reminisce. It is a place that celebrates the rich Norwegian heritage of Starbuck and the railway that ran through it. Memories of old school days and a younger Starbuck live here.

Stop in Your Tracks and Visit the Starbuck Depot Museum

The Depot Museum is home to a variety of buildings and exhibits that offer a glimpse into the past life of Starbuck and all of central Minnesota. We love visitors! For more information about the depot's facets, see our exhibits page.


Starbuck is known for its Norwegian inspired town celebrations. The community gathers at the Depot for three major festivals each year. Consider joining the fun this year and be sure to check out these exciting events!


Lefse is BIG in Starbuck! Learn about the creation of the World's Largest Lefse in our Lefse Hall of Fame.

Thank you for your support throughout the years!
We greatly appreciate the commitment and generosity of the Starbuck community and other Depot friends since our founding in 1983. It would be impossible to preserve this significant piece of history without the assistance of so many individuals and groups. Your donation of time, finances, and skills is what makes this all possible. We encourage you to become (or stay) involved with the Depot in any capacity you are willing to. Sign up to receive our newsletter, alert us with any questions or feedback, and let us know if you are interested in volunteering opportunities. We love to hear from you!
