Excellent. Must see for anyone traveling Route 66. It isnt the national one and it does favor Oklahoma, but it had amazing photos and exhibits from the earliest days to the end of the era. And it ultimately covers more than just Oklahoma...but the Oklahoma details are a great snapshot and fecal wonderful insights. Highly recommend. Oh! And be sure to checkout the outside dining car restaurant exhibit.

What a fun and nostalgic stop! We were on a tight schedule so didnt do the tour, but definitely putting this spot on my list. Still got to see a few things in the shopping area and even bought a blouse! Nice people too.

Nostalgia reigns supreme in the well put together museum about all things Route 66. I enjoyed that they broke information up by decade and topic. It was very well done. Great visuals and artifacts. I especially enjoyed the replicas of vehicles throughout the time. Spent about 90 minutes here and it was well worth it.

This stop took us about 30 minutes since we had two kids. If it was just me and my husband we would have spent longer. We would have liked to read all of the explanations on the whole Route 66 creation. The kids did enjoy the jaunt through the museum. They enjoyed seeing the cars, diner, and different eras of the Route. We all ejoyed learning a little more about the road we have traveled often. There is also a gift shop with some trinkets for the kids to take with them. The ladies at the front counter were extremly nice. This is a good stop to get out of the car on a long road trip. If you like history this is a great place to visit.

So many great memories here of travel when it was fun and each town had a personality and local attractions. The interstates sure killed rural, small-town America. The museum is excellent.

Learned some historical facts of the decades during Rt 66s construction and heyday. I really enjoyed the colorful backstory of Route 66.This place was actually the first Route 66 historical place I stopped. I recommend it. Take your time going through it and take in all it has to offer, reading all the info and listening to the recordings. Very interesting!

Everything was clean and well organized. Lots of news and history exhibits tying into why a Route 66 was so relevant back in the day. Lots of photos and several artifacts. I thought the museum was ok, but my dad really liked it.

I decided to take my mom on a Route 66 roadtrip for her 66th birthday. I had no idea this was here before I started planning. This place is amazing. So much history and videos playing in a few sections put you right there. If you need to sit you can enjoy a seat at the Sonic ice cream shop that I called Mels Diner Happy Days. My mom was overly excited when she saw the first camera she ever had The Browne made by Kodak at age 5. She got a little emotional reminiscing. Everything about this place was great, from the lady who greeted us from the moment we walked in, to the man who took our photo at the end, to the pink florescent light in the ladies room. Only thing I wish they had was a real burger joint.

A fantastic exploration of the history, the character, and ultimately the kitsch of our most famous highway, Route 66. Very informative on not only how it was built, but also how it was/is preserved today.

Great little museum and souvenir shop! We missed it on the way to Moab because it was Sunday and didn’t open till 1:00 but very happy to have caught it on the way back. It has a small admission fee but well worth it. It’s beautifully designed and lays out the history of Route 66 very well.

Small museum but has a lot of antiques stuffs and interesting information about the mother of all roads (route 66). there is a souvenir store and the people were kind. The best for me was the Mustang in front of Museum being in perfect conservation state. There are other cars and pick up truck in very well shape.

This was a great museum, full of artifacts, information, and videos of the iconic Mother Road. I think admission was only $7 or so, without any discounts or anything, which is a pretty good deal. If education isnt your thing, dont worry, theres tons to see here that is just plain neat. Although I have to imagine this would be ideal for a history report or something for kids as well. Great staff, great collection, clean and fully functioning museum... a real treasure in the middle of Oklahoma!

Was a really clean well kept museum. Very interesting museum. One of the best on the route 66 and we had done most. Great footage on the movie of the original road. Movie was amazing and very informative. Staff are very friendly in the shop and helpful. Goods in the shop are reasonably priced. Really enjoyed our visit. Had a photo taken of the cardboard cut out car, to go in our photo album

Enjoyed this museum. Lots of Oklahoma history along with the rest of the Route 66 highway from Chicago to California. Lots of old photos in which I love to see and lots of interactive attractions for kiddos and for the adult kiddos who grew up during this time. Would recommend stopping by this place if you are passing by.

Extremely well done and complete museum covering all of Route 66 and focusing on the Oklahoma portion of course. Information is well presented but very dense if you have the time to check it out in depth, which could easily take a couple of hours. The shop is well stocked with souvenirs at good prices and the docents are very friendly but their knowledge varies depending on the individual of course. There are some great displays with old vehicles and objects as well as collages of newspaper clippings from all the eras of the highway.

Awesome Place, But My Customer Service Experience Was Horrible! Its Incredible That People Treat Solo Travelers Differently Then Everyone Else. I Was Looking Forward To Stopping Here, And Was Happy Until I Went To Check In. The Women Was Rude To Me From The Very Beginning, Then It Got Worse When I Didnt Put An Address In The Guest Box. Last Time I Checked, It Is Not Illegal To Not Officially Live Anywhere. Ran Through Real Quick, Snapped Some Photos, And Now Will Go Forward Being Sure Not To Recommend This Place. The Part I Dont Understand, Is How Can I Regret Coming To A Place Like This? People Should Not Be Judged. Those Who Work In Customer Service Should Treat Everyone The Same, Just As Everyone Else Should

This was my favorite of all the Rt.66 museums that Ive visited. The museum is clean, modern, and collections are well spaced. You can easily read signs or look at displays without bumping into other people. The museum is well thought out in terms of layout and explaining the history and significance of Rt. 66 as well as the history of the country at the same time.The gift shop offered a nice array of tasteful souvenirs that were reasonably priced.
