“early pioneer trails, railroads & history”
The Route 66 "Mother Road" Museum was dedicated on July 4, 2000 in the historic Casa del Desierto, Harvey House, in Barstow, California. The Museum displays a collection of historic photographs and artifacts related to Route 66 and the Mojave Desert Communities. Displays include development of the United States Route 66 from early pioneer trails, railroads, automotive history, businesses and sites.
Kinda of a bummer, we drove out to see it and found out it's only open Friday- Sunday, 11am- 4pm.
If you are stopping in Barstow, stop here. It is small but has some neat items and vehicles. The couple running it were so friendly it made the visit!
A great place to break up the road trip and pause. Tons if history and a cute place to buy souvenirs
