A Time Capsule in the Library.

This is a gem not to be missed in the small town of Lebanon, Mo. Located in the Lebanon/Laclede Library and full of nostalgic Route 66 and local history.

Excellent little museum - in the same building housing the local library and a fantastic gift shop. It's free, but worth spending time discovering each and every one of their exhibits. Cool stop for a family with kids!

Like Dowd's Catfish restaurant, this place has some great advertising but is less than expected. I have a hard time qualifying the place with title of "museum." It is a typical local display--collages of advertising and photographs. Sadly, the original stuff will fade if left in the cases forever like in most small facilities. The location (the very nice local... More

While having a relatively small amount of space to work with this museum makes the most of the space with lots of interesting displays. I wish they could add to their space as I would expect they would receive lots more objects to display. It shares space with the local public library.

I really liked this place. The owner was very friendly and had many interesting things to view and buy. They even have their own soda. A must stop when you are out and about.

Stopped here on return trip from visiting Arizona as a little sightseeing break. It is a very interesting museum with many exhibits featuring many scenes from bygone years and facts about historic Rt.66. Admission price is very reasonable- $5 for adults, $ 4 for seniors and children. The site also features many old building fronts with items from earlier years,... More

The best thing we did was eat at the Cave Restaurant in Richland, not far from Lebanon. WOW! The food was nothing spectacular, but it was plentiful and in such an unusual setting. Worth the extra time trying to locate.

We spent a little time in Lebanon, MO. The museum is great! But then, I love all things Route 66. We saw a few different 66 museums and all were great. Each one has different items so all is unique and special. I can't wait to go back! I was ready after we were home for about 3 days. I... More

This place has a great title but it is a let down. There is really not much to it, so do not make a special trip to visit.
