Although the museum was neat, the racist African American woman who manages it taints the experience with rudeness. I overheard that she said she would never get fired no matter how she treats people because she is a black woman, and if she was fired, she would call the NAACP. I plan to call the city (who owns the museum) to complain about the way she treats guests and her attitude. All the other employees were welcoming and informative. It's worth a stop! But if you experience the same rudeness from the manager I encourage you to also call the city to complain.

Make sure you arrive by 4 pm if you want to actually tour the museum or they will not let you in. We arrived at 430 and the ladies working very rudely informed us and others just arriving that we couldn't tour the museum because they closed at 5. We still walked around and checked out all the replica buildings from the outside, the gift shop and took a picture with the huge Route 66 sign. It's great for a photo stop but I think the Oklahoma Route 66 Museum was a much better stop. The people are friendlier there and they have a much better gift shop. So basically Id make a stop here for a photo, nothing else.

Have to pay to get in the museum but the sign out front is worth a "selfie stop" as it is really really big!

Really neat museum about Route 66! My kids really enjoyed it as well. Lots of cool old memorabilia and vehicles. The lady at the desk also gave my kids a free pin, which we thought was really cool bc it's something we collect. Worth the stop and admission!

Meh. Take a selfie in front of the sign and move on. The Oklahoma Route 66 Museum is more fun.
