A $3 donation allows you to visit 3 museums. Visit the history of the area and see lots of items from the past. There was a free movie of the history of Route 66 which gave us insight into making plans for the upcoming week.

On Route 66 trip. Detailed information on the history of Route 66 especially during the Dust Bowl era. Would recommend. Plan on an extra hour if you want to see the movie.

Very good information about the "Okies" and other folks that left home during the dustbowl. That trip was no picnic. Well worth the trip from Laughlin

Hi, The parking lot is very large, here is not a dedicated RV parking, but there is plenty of room to park. We were in our 31' RV and had plenty of room to park and turnaround.
