I went in the summer with my niece and great niece - the baby had a blast in the 50's she even played with an old phone booth. Then outside we took her picture on top on a rock sign. It was a wonderful day.

There is a small entry fee but it's worthwhile. You walk through a timeline of Route 66 history, matched with music of each era. It was fun bopping along to the Glen Miller Band & Will Rogers whilst reading and seeing historic photos and colourful displays. A tip on getting there ... Don't follow the left hand turn on the...

We stopped in during our Route 66 road trip. This is a must see if you are riding Route 66. Tons of info, displays, and great staff.

Enjoyed taking a trip down Rt. 66 with all the exhibits of places along the Highway. I'll admit that now I don't see the fascination with traveling Old 66, as it is rough and narrow, and just part of our life here in Clinton, Oklahoma, but the history of it is quite fascinating.

This museum, which is operated by the Oklahoma Historical Society, is one of three Route 66 museums in Oklahoma (see separate Tripadvisor Reviews for National Route 66 Museum in Elk City and Route 66 Interpretive Center in Chandler) and is my favorite not just in Oklahoma but of all the museums in the eight states Route 66 passes through.

Not the biggest museum by any stretch of the imagination but what is in there is all very interesting and educational. The video they show is documents the demise of Route 66 and is a much watch for people interested in the historic route. Staff were really helpful and friendly and there was a lovely gift shop at the end.

This is the perfect stop for nostalgia fans. It is not large but has enough items to make sure you come out smiling and with knowledge of Rt. 66

It doesn't take long to walk through the museum but its fun with some great memorabilia. Cleverly set out in decades so that you can see the rise, fall and subsequent resurgence of route 66. The lady at the desk offered great suggestions about places to eat nearby as well.
