Great old Navajo County Court house. I think there has been TV segments of ghost hunting in there. Low key, leisurely atmosphere where you can examine the displayed artifacts as long as you want. Lots of local flavor.

This place was terrific. Free to all, this was a surprisingly extensive museum, with everything so well displayed, and some really cool exhibits (like one on telephony). Check it out for sure!

I went in to grab a map, but ended up staying for an hour. Lots of great sites and exhibits. If you're in the area or traveling on Route 66, stop by. Little hidden gems like this is what 66 is all about.

I was very impressed with the size and variety of historical items that were in this museum. It's three stories and also includes an old jail and information about the pony express. The courthouse room is still intact. If you're in Holbrook don't miss it!

Cool history of the area including Route 66 stuff. Fossils and lots of interesting artifacts for children to see. It's in an old courthouse
