We didn't expect a whole lot when we stopped here, but were we surprised. This museum was well worth the $5 entry fee. The displays are set up beginning with the construction of the road in the 1920s. You move from room to room and each room progresses one decade. There is music from each decade if you want to...

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.

Traveling with a group we stopped for a relaxing stop. Well it lasted 2 hours with exhibits, displays, classic photos and vehicles, rolling videos of the hay day of Route 66 - but most of all the visual images of the people that traveled America on the Mother of All USA Roads. No food or snacks available but who came... More

This small museum has it all--Route 66 memorabilia, classic cars, a diner scene and more--all arranged in a logical historical way. We spent about an hour but it can be seen in less time. I liked reading the newspaper headlines and articles from the years the old road was in commission. Very good value and should not be missed by... More

You're driving Route 66 along the OK stretch, so no need to waste hours in the larger museums when this one gets it all in, under an hour. Just enough to attract and retain your interest on a rest stop out of the car while driving the longest stretch of remaining road. Recommended.
