Ester and Pete are very friendly, it is still free admission and you can get good information, what to do and what to see in and around Williams. Pete knows a lot about the history of the area and about the... More

This place is a gem! Everywhere you look you see something really old and cool. One side has lots of vintage items, and the other is, of course, a gift shop with new items for sale. I didn't buy anything but they let us spend a lot of time taking pictures of their stuff.

Nice little museum, no entry fee, plenty of memorbilia to buy (although a bit pricy, found some of the same in other places for cheaper). Not only for people familiar with Route 66, and fit for foreigners as well. Most importantly, Pete the owner is an awesome conversation parter, don't go in without picking a chat with him, if possible... More

Although Pete's was closed when I arrived in Williams, the view from the outside was well worth the stop and a few photos. The sight of Pete's brought back memories of my first trip to the west before I 40. The days of the desert bags immediately came back. I hope to go in some day and reminisce with Pete.

There are places which are great and people which are great, but this gem has both. Pete is an amazing person worthy of chatting to if he will honor you.
