Trip Down Memory Lane

A particularly helpful aspect of this museum is that it provided direction to the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, TX.

There are some great Route 66 souvenirs in the gift shop. The museum is not huge, but is interesting. It's definitely not a big day visit, like some museums. Allow an hour or two, tops.

So clean and organized and informational! They had lots of great memorabilia and some interactive sets for photo ops. Worth the stop and the cheap entrance fee :)

Several photos and memorabilia including vehicles of the time period. Starts off in the 1920's through the 1960's. Reasonable admission fee, nice gift shop. Would recommend!

Brilliant displays of an era gone by with walk through rooms of photos, music etc of Route 66.,The diligence of the people who set the museum up has... More

This museum has many items for you to read about the history of this highway from Chicago to Los Angeles. There are many pictures and interactive exhibits explaining how the road was built, why, how "Okies" traveled to California to find a better living and found prejudice instead. Very interesting and they have several vintage automobiles. A 1957 Chevrolet graces... More

We made a stop at the Route 66 museum in Clinton while driving across the country from NYC to Las Vegas. The building is just off the Interstate. It was a great find. The staff were very welcoming. We signed the visitor book, and headed into the museum. It was full of nostalgia and exhibits. It was really well done.... More

This excellent museum was so nostalgic for us! We REALLY enjoyed stepping back in time -- from the old mechanic’s shop of my childhood to the malt shop of my teen years! My favorite part was the History – written on the walls and in the movie. Both told the story of building Route 66 – aka the MOTHER ROAD!... More

In 1951 at age 14 my parents and I traveled from Oklahoma City to Santa Monica CA all the way on route 66. There are other 66 museums but so far this is the best. I well remember many of the features in the museum and it is well displayed and fun.

Traveling with my older parents. They loved the trip down memory lane, and my 12 year old son enjoyed listening to my parents tell him stories about many of the displays. Definitely worth the $5! Route 66 must see.

Thank ogor
