This museum was really good. Lots of old memorabilia of the old Route 66, cars, diners and general nostalgic items. Very well presented and worth a visit.

It's not a very big museum, but it's worth a stop and it's free. Check it out if you're on Route 66.

By far, this is one of the best Route 66 museums around. It has extensive information as well as several re-creations of a diner, a motel room and a service station. It's fun and very informational.
