We visited this museum because we live near Route 66 so we took the trip to the museum to see what it was like. We were not disappointed. It is not a big museum but it covers the the history of the road and has some interesting exhibits. I especially liked seeing the old truck loaded with household goods that... More

We totally enjoyed seeing the Route 66 Museum! Yes, it is small but really well done! It was really fun to see all of the old post cards and maps. It was like stepping back in time! Kids were a lil bored but that is to be expected. We loved it and look forward to coming back.

A museum devoted to the Great American Road Trip. I visited here 15 years ago, and it's still a fun museum to visit as you're driving west on 66 or I-40. Reasonably priced admission and gets you excited to see the other landmarks on 66.

lots of vignettes set up from Old 66 heyday. plenty of photo ops, as well as Old 66 souvenirs. The "certified clean" ladies room was a 1950's throw back, and PINK!!!

This was a cute little place to stop at along Rt 66. It was a little small, but lots of history filled into the museum about Rt 66. Lots of visually interesting things to see every where you turned and the kids enjoyed pushing the button to hear the nostalgic music in every room. It was worth the price at... More

I do wish it was larger, but it is a fun and interesting museum of a invisible Roadway that spanned from CA to IL....I liked how it walked you through the decades --- I seriously thought that was fun! I have been over Route 66 (I-40) many times and I always look for those places that still have those remains... More

If you're looking for a museum that gives the full history of Route 66, this is a great choice. Very well done. So much history to read about in each room that's specific to each decade. Also a nice video and pictures paying tribute to people helping to keep Route 66 alive at the end of the museum.

Lots of history packed into this museum. From inception to current times you get to listen to the history and see actual videos along with the opportunity to listen to "mood music". Very reasonable admission prices and equally reasonable priced gift shop. This is a must stop!

We've been to museums around the US and various European countries, and this little museum rivals them all. Using ephemera, models, old cars, and other materials from the period 1920 - 1980, audio, and video that actually works (unlike some exhibits at the Smithsonian), the museum brings to life how The Mother Road was envisioned, designed, built, used, renovated, stripped...

This was the highlight of Clinton, The price was less than expected. they had very good exhibits on the road from its begining to when the interstate went through. If in Clinton you should not miss this.
