Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details

I enjoyed my visit from the greeter at the door to the comprehensive look at the development of the routes west that led to the eventual Route 66. It's a lot more than a two lane highway with classic cars as I had thought it to be. Gives you an appreciation of all the effort it took to develop the transportation system we take for granted these days. Well presented.

This museum is well worth the visit. Allow yourself plenty of time, there is so much to see and digest. A lot of old photos of the dust bowl and people on Route 66 on their way to the promised land. Also personal write ups on how life was in the early days of Route 66 and there was a reading rooms with bits of memerobilia to browse through. Exhibits were very good and the film show was excellent

What a great museum. Heaps of history, photos and displays. The old powerhouse itself is a unique place to house this museum. A must see in Kingman.

Well worth the visit. Housed in the old powerhouse it covers a whole spectrum of life on the Mother Road. Everything from the dust bowl era to the '60s. Very interesting film of life on the road too!

Great stop on Route 66. Really gives a great historical account of the Mother Road and its significance. Wonderful use of a historical building.
