This museum has an assortment of odds and ends that will strike the chords of memory for many people. The Harvey Girls area is small but definitely worth seeing. I was surprised at how much history is wrapped up in Winslow: it's a lot more than a line in an Eagles' song. The space is small enough to see everything... More

The museum is located in an old bank building a quarter block north of the "standing on the corner" sculpture. If you take the time to read the descriptions on the displays and talk with the curators you should be able to get a good description of the towns colorful past. It's worth a hour.

This little museum is off the beaten path. It is a little hard to find. But, once you do, it is worth finding. The local history that is significant to the national history is tremendous. Winslow was the place to be back in its heyday. Unfortunately, things changed and Winslow became just another town left behind. But, this museum shows... More

This museum is small, but full of history! Included in the museum are exhibits on Native Americans, Mormon establishment, train and travel history (Route 66 and Lindbergh Airport), Harvey Girls, and local folk who were born and raised there and went on to make significant history in America. I had no idea TWA used to provide a coast to coast... More

This little museum, owned by the Winslow Historical Society, is a tiny place chocked full of local history. From info on Route 66, Lindbergh Airport, La Posada and the Harvey girls to early American native life, ice age fossils and local family life, this little gem has it all. There is no admission but donations are welcomed. The volunteers are... More

Been to Winslow many times, but this was my first visit to this museum. Very interesting old photos of Winslow and the railroad. Nice ladies attending to the museum. You can see it all in about 30 minutes. About 100 feet from the famous "corner".

The old trails museum is a great stop for one to learn about the history of the small town of Winslow. While this museum does not have a very professional contemporary layout it provides a great depth of memorabilia covering almost every element of Winslow's history from the Santa Fe Railroad to the High School to the original Trans World...
