Nostalgic return to the original Route 66. Filled with memorabilia from the glory days of this iconic highway. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. A must see if you’re passing through Clinton, Oklahoma. more »
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 isn't your thing, don't worry, there's 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!
This place is so cool. Having watched the TV show (back in the sixties) I just had to stop in! I am on a road trip in my Corvette convertible. I wish my buddy Joe had been with me. RIP my dear friend.
