“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2014

Enjoyed looking at the memorabilia. The displays were well organized over the decades. There were also many news articles framed and other items to show the progression of the chain.

“Interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2014

Took my 3 sons here when visiting the San Bernadino area. There was tons of interesting things, I even saw some old happy meal toys that I remember from my younger days. The kids loved seeing all the McDonalds stuff but they were disappointed they couldn't get a happy meal there.
The displays are a bit all over the place, but considering that it's free I can let that slide. The store is next to the old Route 66 and they also had some neat Route 66 memorabilia in the back as well.

The surrounding area seems a bit shonky but that said we didn't encounter any issues.

This place was really cool and interesting. The best part was that is was free. So many memorabilia. Well worth the visit.

“Not Great”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2014

They could use some seriously work on this, I am glad it didn't cost anything. They have so many cool things in this building, but it was sort of a mess.

“Expected More”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2014

It's worth the price of admission, being free, and seeing Happy Meal toys and odds and ends from early McD's was interesting for two minutes, but I wouldn't go much out of my way to visit this place.
