“Huh, I didn't know that...”
Review of Old Trails Museum

Old Trails Museum
Ranked #8 of 16 things to do in Winslow
Attraction details
Reviewed June 25, 2014

This museum is small, but full of history! Included in the museum are exhibits on Native Americans, Mormon establishment, train and travel history (Route 66 and Lindbergh Airport), Harvey Girls, and local folk who were born and raised there and went on to make significant history in America. I had no idea TWA used to provide a coast to coast service with many stops including a stop in Winslow.... who knew?

This little museum, owned by the Winslow Historical Society, is a tiny place chocked full of local history. From info on Route 66, Lindbergh Airport, La Posada and the Harvey girls to early American native life, ice age fossils and local family life, this little gem has it all. There is no admission but donations are welcomed. The volunteers are knowledgeable and willilng to share their opinions as well as historical facts. The museum is open Tues.- Sat. from 11AM til 3PM. They do have a small gift shop area where they accept cash but not credit cards. While I am not a history buff and not that fond of museums, we ended up spending several hours in this little place and I am glad we did.

Been to Winslow many times, but this was my first visit to this museum. Very interesting old photos of Winslow and the railroad. Nice ladies attending to the museum. You can see it all in about 30 minutes. About 100 feet from the famous "corner".

The old trails museum is a great stop for one to learn about the history of the small town of Winslow. While this museum does not have a very professional contemporary layout it provides a great depth of memorabilia covering almost every element of Winslow's history from the Santa Fe Railroad to the High School to the original Trans World Airlines stop at the local airport.
