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

For anyone travelling 66 this is a must stop location. Very informative and it was relaxing to walk around and stretch the legs after being on the road for a few hours. The shop has some great buys and loads of 66 things to keep any tourist happy. Loved the little rebuilt diner outside.

We were cruising along parts of Route 66 around Oklahoma and this was a timely reminder of the history and on-going draw of the Mother Road. The 60s decked out VW Campervan was one of many highlights but each decade room had its own story, history to give and items to see.

This was a small but really great museum! When we arrived we were greeted by the friendly volunteers who work there. They explained the museum to us and answered any questions we had. The museum is divided into sections by decade. Each decade is its own room, complete with artifacts, music, photos, and digital displays that help tell the story... More

I've always liked anything that has to do with Route 66, I lived in Ashfork, AZ in 1960 at a little motel beside Hwy 66. It was an amazing time and I will never forget it. So anytime I'm close to Route 66 I go to all museums or cafe's. I've just about covered the whole route. All the museums... More

Although small, this museum offers insight of what traveling Rte. 66 was like and how it changed the lives of people who went west. It also reflects on a simpler style of life.

They did a great job putting this museum together. You can read about the history of Route 66 and see lots of memorabilia. Everything is well displayed. We loved it. Also a very nice gift shop where we definitely got our kicks.

If we had known this Route 66 museum was this good--and that the Oklahoma Historical Society designed and runs it--it would have been our first stop on coming to Oklahoma City. Other, closer stops were disappointing but this museum in Clinton is worth the 1 hr. 15 minute drive from OKC. It has fun and interesting exhibits for kids and... More

Great little museum for Route 66 lovers. Lots of fun and interesting items on display. Great little gift shop! Nice grounds. Very reasonably priced admission. Would highly recommend stopping here. You can do it in 1/2-hour.

This is one of the best. It gives a bird's eye view of the social changes that brought about the rise and fall of "The Mother Road." Great pictures and exhibits. Fees were nominal. $5 for adults and $4 for over 65. I would do it again.
