“The curator is worth the trip”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

The museum is small but concentrated.
The best part was the gift shop which is full of genuine US craft-work.
I had a very interesting conversation with the curator who has a fine ideological motivation for the museum
Stop if you are in the area

“Interesting Stop!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

The museum was interesting, well done and provided tidbits of the past. Route 66 contributed a great deal to the American life and helped shape America. Worth a quick visit, make sure to stop t the gift shop for some cool hits.

“Educational”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

This museum was better than what I thought it was going to be. I read that it was in a library and thought to myself it wasn't going to be very good. There is a lot of information packed into a little space, however it is placed very orderly. I really liked the displays they had set up. There's no charge to visit, but they do take donations :)

“U.S. 66, Laclede County, Missouri”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

The museum is a wonderful opportunity to learn about local Route 66 people and places! There are displays of what local hotels, and camps, rooms looked like. Period equipment, gas pumps and an antique car are there. Other historical items are on display too. People are very well informed and can show you around the museum. There is also a well stocked gift shop which has a variety of interesting items. Great Place!

“Nostalgia”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

The museum was a little hard to find, so I did spend some time driving around the block- the street sign for the library and the sign on the library have different names. I enjoyed the displays there- I like seeing glimpses of America as it had been. I did visit the museum in the midst of a re-organizing of displays, so not all the displays were available. This was rather disappointing. I stayed at the Munger Moss Hotel, and the host there told me of several things from their hotel to be on the lookout for- the most notable of which was the old switchboard.
