“A route 66 institution, est. 1968”

The Oklahoma Route 66 Museum is operated by The Oklahoma Historical Society, a state agency. The museum was originally opened to the public in 1968 as the Museum of the Western Trails, operated by the Oklahoma Industrial Trust and Recreation Department (which later became the Oklahoma Department of Tourism and Recreation). In 1991 the museum was transferred to OHS. In 1993 plans began for a redevelopment of the museum in order to focus on transportation and Route 66. The project was funded with federal, state and private funds, with the citizens of Clinton (population approximately 10,000) raising over $200,000.00.

A step back in time to look at the history of Route 66 and how it changed America. Great walk-through museum for all ages. Museum does have a fee,$5 adult and less for students and seniors. Gift shop has unique souvenirs and shirts that are reasonably priced. This is a definite stop for Route 66 enthusiasts!

Thanks Road Trippers for a neat place to stop, stretch our legs & soak in some great Americana. Our kids loved all the interactive displays. There is a lot of history packed into this museum. The attendants were very friendly & helpful.

Awesome museum, I pretty much stopped at all these Route 66 visitor museums, but this one was the most clean and it was very comprehensive. Very nice and knowledgable staff. A must-stop along the Route.
