When I visited in April, the museum was open from 9AM to 1PM three days a week. Don't know if that means they can't get enough money to support them or that it just isn't a very good museum

Not a large museum, but free and it had some nice classic cars and Route 66 memorabilia. Nice photo ops in front with the statue and the classic cars inside.

This is a small museum and is free to enter. Lots of photos of different parts of the mother road. It is only a half an hour visit at the most but still worth a visit.

Great little museum. The video is very interesting and gives you a great idea of Route 66 back in the day.
