We arrived a little before the museum opened, so we took some time to browse one of the three gift shops inside. The museum itself was interesting, especially the electric car exhibit at the end, with creative displays and fun facts. One of the gift shops was a Hualapai-run shop with native art and trinkets. Overall, we had a great... More

If you are a Rt. 66 fan as I am, then this little museum is a must see. The staff is very helpful and talkative and can offer some pointers on seeing the local sights.

We planned an entirely separate stop to drop into Kingman to see the historic Route 66 museum. Admission is reasonable and gets you access to all of the features of the museum. You walk through what is essentially a timeline of Route 66 complete with numerous artifacts from each time period. There is a lot of information to read which... More

We were able to drive over 100 miles of the old mother road and check that off of the bucket list. The museum was a great experience for roadies and fans of the history of this old highway. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in experiencing what it was like driving from Chicago to California back in the... More

Great information on Rt 66. Only $4.00 and during the Fun Run it was only a dollar. It was nice to be in the air conditioning while enjoying some history about Rt 66. There is also a room with archives of The Arizona Rt 66 Association which is very interesting.

Plenty of history of the route. Includes Gift Shop, Visitors Info, and others that make it helpful. Ticket is $4 each, but includes 2 other museums too.

Great museum, the best we have come across in travelling over 2000 miles on 66 (or i40). To be honest most of the towns on route have nothing as good as this to offer about Route 66 and it's great history. Fantastic, to top it the staff are brilliant, thank you, a great end to our journey. On cost $4... More

We walked through the museum at the visitors center. It wasn't exactly what I had expected but it had some pretty neat information! Cool to visit once!

I would have expected more about Route 66 and a little less about Kingman because Kingman is the larger of towns along AZ 66. The admission price got you into two other museums as well. It was ok.
