“An original!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

If you are a Route 66 fan then this is a must. It is a small old museum but with all the history you could want.

“One of the top Route 66 museums anywhere on the road.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

Great displays and friendly and helpful volunteers. A great way to spend a few minutes or a few hours learning about Route 66 in California and beyond. Make this a "must stop" when you're getting your kicks on Route 66.

“Stop by for a look!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

It took about an hour to tour the whole museum and loved the displays.We were greeted by the friendly staff and given a great tour.You can tell they love their volunteering jobs.
We saw some really interesting displays from yesteryear..had some good laughs and chats....
They don't charge to get in so what do you have to lose...give it a look see next time.
