Unlike many other Route 66 museums, this is not a car museum but instead a museum about the road itself. The museum is divided up by decades and does have a representative car of the era and a button you can push to hear the era's songs in each room. The museum focuses on why the road was built, how it grew, tourism along the route and its eventual demise, as well as people who were key to building the road and now preserving it for history. Unique stories are featured on people and places you may not have heard about but who have fascinating stories to tell. For kids, I really like the feature they have on artifacts that says "do you know what this is?" to explain things (like a shoe shine stand) that they may have never seen before. There is also a portable cafe/soda shop onsite that has a neat story behind it as well. American history and culture from each decade are also featured. Worth a stop in if you are traveling through on the Mother Road.

This was easily the best Route 66 museum that we visited while traveling on Route 66 across Oklahoma. Oklahoma does a great job of promoting the mother road. Make sure to pick up a Route 66 passport and get it stamped at the various stops. Really enjoyed this museum as the sole focus of the museum is the history of the road. Nice timeline of Route 66 history with great exhibits. Would plan on spending 1-2 hours for this stop.

There are lots of really nice museums who are themed some what on Route 66. This one is all about route 66 and it's history from the very beginning. It's a walk through with pictures and narratives and many old things....it is very well done. They have nice gift shop, an old Valentine diner all redone for viewing, and several other old relics. The museum does charge a small fee to go through, but, it's not much and well worth every penny!

Went here while visiting OKC. It is a short drive but worth it. The museum is well layed out and they have some really cool memorabilia from past eras as it relates the Route 66. Their is a short film that is good and the price is very reasonable.

My husband and I visited here today. We enjoyed seeing all the memorabilia and watching the film about Route 66. The main part of this museum is basically a timeline with a few vehicles thrown in. We were really expecting to see more cars, but we enjoyed our visit.

This museum is so well done. It takes you from the beginning (when route 66 was built) to the end (when it was decommissioned). Every section represents a different decade, and music from that decade will play through the speakers. It was so nostalgic! We had a great time reading all about the history of the mother road. $7 admission fee and worth every cent. The one down the road in Elk City is good, too, but this one is ALL route 66. It's definitely a must stop.

This is a really nice little museum full of information about Route 66. There is a lot to see and the people are really nice. We did this museum first and later stopped at the National Route 66 Museum in Elk City. The museum in Elk City had one small section on Route 66 - the rest of it was local historical items. If you're wanting to learn about Route 66 and you can only do one museum, do the one in Clinton.

This museum is organized to allow you to walk from the beginnings of the road to the current days. Lots of artifacts, photos, displays, and literature. Excellent movie available with good information. Gift shop worth a visit.

You're in Oklahoma and want to visit a Route 66 museum, and then 2 come along at once... this one in Clinton, and the National Route 66 Museum in Elk City. We did both.
This one is more inside, with lots of information and displays about the Route and how things were 'back in the day'.
Really interesting and a great way to spend an hour or so.

This is a great museum and well thought out. It’s laid out by decades and there’s quite a bit to see in each decade. There’s a self-guided audio tour in each room, music, and plaques to read. It goes through the whole history of the road from its inception to its decommissioning. We spent just over 2 hours there and felt like we saw everything.
