Took students on a field trip. Staff was very knowledgeable and walked through with us on a guided tour. Nice gift shop that they all enjoyed.

My sister-in-law is a great lover of Route 66 and we just had to stop at this museum to check it out. The entrance fee is reasonable at $5.00 for adults and $4.00 for seniors 65 and over. They have it set up by decades from when the road first existed as a dirt road up to present day. Each... More

This is a fresh museum compared to many further west. Most displays are set pieces; juke box diner, a surveyors set of gear, a mechanics workplace and many more. There is a good range of souvenirs.

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.
