it was great, with a really large display for such a small library. 3 rooms, and 3 additional displays of historically accurate scenes (working on a 4th when i stopped in). It's free (donation box at the door next to the visitor's log), and so much history there!

The museum is attached to the library and is very short (and clean, no urine here either). It’s free and has a clean bathroom for someone needing a quick break. I met an author that was signing books that day and purchased his book in the lobby area. I don’t know that I would intentionally revisit but if I needed a nice place to take a break while on a road trip, I would.

Very clean, not sure where the person was who said she stepped in pee but it wasn’t here. Lots of vintage memorabilia to look at. Lots of reading through glass, all in all, ok stop.

Spend a half an hour to an hour here. It's right off the highway and convenient if you need to stretch your legs or get a bite to eat. The life size displays are pretty cool it gives you a really good insight of the time period.

Pretty cool little museum inside. It only takes about 30-45 minutes to go through and it's self guided. It is also very close the highway. If you have the time you should stop by.

Cute little museum packed with lots of history. I loved the aerial views of the highways. Friendly staff. Great collection of artefacts. Unique gift shop with localised produce/antiques for sale.

Helpful staff who are interested in sharing the history of Route 66. There's also a vintage gas station on display, although to be honest you see loads of vintage gas stations along Route 66 anyhow. There are old maps, but what I think was super cute was their collection of vintage salt and pepper shakers from actual Route 66 diners, cafes and restaurants. Very cute little museum, plus it's free, just leave a donation. :)
