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.

The museum is small but concentrated. The best part was the gift shop which is full of genuine US craft-work. I had a very interesting conversation with the curator who has a fine ideological motivation for the museum Stop if you are in the area

The museum was interesting, well done and provided tidbits of the past. Route 66 contributed a great deal to the American life and helped shape America. Worth a quick visit, make sure to stop t the gift shop for some cool hits.

This museum was better than what I thought it was going to be. I read that it was in a library and thought to myself it wasn't going to be very good. There is a lot of information packed into a little space, however it is placed very orderly. I really liked the displays they had set up. There's no... More

The museum is a wonderful opportunity to learn about local Route 66 people and places! There are displays of what local hotels, and camps, rooms looked like. Period equipment, gas pumps and an antique car are there. Other historical items are on display too. People are very well informed and can show you around the museum. There is also a... More
