This is a super cool stop, but I was more into the Superman collection than the ice cream, although I can't say I tried any. The owner talked to us about how he amassed his collection, as well as the visitors from furthest visitors away to his shop.

While attending the quarterly meeting of the Missouri Route 66 Association, we stopped by the "Superman on Rt 66" Ice Cream Parlor and Museum. They had to change the name to "SuperTAM on 66" after pressure from the owners of the Superman trademark. The museum owner has been collecting Superman memorabilia for over 30 years and displays it on every wall plus in several display cases. There is also lots of Route 66 memorabilia on display. We had an ice cream treat while we browsed all the artifacts.
