Awesome place to the history of Route 66. Great exhibits and photos of days gone by. Couple of great cars and old truck that shows how tough the conditions were for the settlers moving west.

A lot of love, work and planning have gone into the exhibits for this museum. At the time we visited the museum had put together a special exhibit concerning the Dust Bowl era. They have many displays about the people who traveled Route 66, their cars and even the old Burma Shave billboards. The staff is particularly helpful. Be sure... More

This museum tells the history of the historic Route 66. What fun to see the Burma Shave signs, motels & diners we remember from traveling the Missouri section as kids on family trips! And the old electric vehicles are very interesting to see. A well done trip back in time to a glorious period in our country's history! A must... More

This museum is inside the Powerhouse Visitor Center. Some brochures about the region and myriad of information can be found. Museum itself is small but cute. Old electrical vehicle projects can be seen on the ground floor before leave the museum. It is Interesting to see these attempts made years ago.
