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.

This museum reveals a pretty good history about route 66, since this part of the state is where route 66 went through, back in it's heyday. It is a small museum, but very nice.

We started our Rt. 66 road trip in Chicago westbound and tried to stop at every museum along the way. This was by far the best of the museum’s we visited. The exhibits are well done and give the visitor a walk back in history. One particular exhibit was the back end of a ’59 (?) Rambler station wagon that... More

This was our second Route 66 museum and it didn't disappoint. They have great displays of the history of the Mother Road that really take you back in time. It doesn't take too long to go through, and there is a great gift shop, too. This is worth the stop, but we felt the Route 66 Interpretive Center in Chandler... More

Exhibit both outside and inside. Outside a small park and some photo possibilities. Inside, a gift shop, restrooms and a walk-in museum, approx 150 m long with exhibits and show cases. Newspapers, a model of a diner, cars, a film studio.

It wasn't the biggest museum but very up to date/new. They had a great collection of memorabilia, good stories and good displays. The gift shop had unique things too, lots of variety. Well worths topping. Our only regret was that it closed at 5 and we got there just after 4. Could have stayed much longer. The musuem really told... More
