This museum is done to perfection...in my opinion, better than the National museum. Look no further!

First, the value for going through the museum is super. $5 was a bargain, then all of the memorabilia through the museum was perfect and added to the ambiance. I left there with such a smile on my face.

We rode our motorcycles from Chicago to California on as much of the old alignment as is possible - and I can tell you this is, by far, the best of the Route 66 museums of them all. Outstanding job of telling the story of The Mother Road. Great gift shop, very good video to start you out with and... More

This is the best Route 66 museum that we've been to in our month long adventure along the Mother Road. Displays in rooms in a chronological order. Lots of interactive things to do too. Videos, quizzes, posters, music. Staff are very welcoming too. Well worth the small $5 entry fee.

We've been to several of the Route 66 museums along the old Route 66 road, and this one is by far the best. It gives one a full sampling of the Route 66 experience, including the look of the restuarants, the gas stations, the cars that made the trip, the people, and the signage along the way. Really, really good... More

Certainly worth a stop on Route 66. Excellent exhibits and galleries showing each era of the Route from the building through to 1950's vacation experiences. Fascinating, very well laid out, videos to see in each gallery and beautifully restored cars. Of course the inevitable gift shop at the end, well worth $5 entry.

Very nice displays and videos. Much to see and do. Stongly recommend and I will say it is much better than the dark, smaller national museum on down the road to the west. Employees are much nicer at this location too.

I called before arriving for info on times and the lovely last answering the phone gave me more info than I asked for. I hung up being able to picture the place in my head. And it was spot on! What a great experience!

Certainly a must see when you are traveling along historic Route 66! The museum tries to make you feel what the Route 66 once meant. And it succeeds.

This is not a high-brow museum; one does not feel inundated with information and images. It is a thoughtful and nostalgic review of one of the most important cultural icons in America. The museum is not large; children can easily be entertained. It is colorful and clean. The gift shop is adorable. I traveled quite a way out of my... More
