We visited briefly and found the museum to be very interesting, informative and enjoyable. The displays were great and have some great history on Route 66. The museum does not charge but takes donations.

Nice little museum offering pieces of local history as well. Located in a library it was nice to see what was going on in the local community reading all the flyers. However, there are nicer museums along the route I would recommend instead.

Just happened to round the corner at the library one evening to find the museum. A great throwback into history with a classic car, and its story, greeting upon entry. History of the Rt. 66 is just the start. Examples of menus, articles, motels rooms...More

This was a cute little museum with lots of information. My only recommendation would be to sell more memorabilia. We really wanted some Route 66 souvenirs, but they did not have much.

Small collection of memorabilia from Route 66 doesn't take long to view. Interesting setups of diner, tourist cabin and gas station
