Wow, missed it on two earlier trips, but made sure we did it this time. It was fantastic and well worth the time spent there. Two hours was enough time, but we chatted with the two ladies working there and another visitor that was from Australia. The displays are awesome and the gift shop like being a kid again in... More

This was one of the best Rt 66 museums we have visited. The displays were categorized by era with good historical information. The information was well displayed with good lighting, themed music for each room and easy to see. Great photos!

We didn't expect a whole lot when we stopped here, but were we surprised. This museum was well worth the $5 entry fee.

As a big fan of route 66 it was great stopping by the museum to learn more history about this great route to the west. Informative and fun.

If you are over 60 you remember some or a lot of what is displayed. Not a large place but nicely layed out. If you are younger than 60 a chance to learn about one of the roads that helped create America.
