The cost for the museum is $5 per person. You can take your pets if they are in a stroller. It is a fun stop.

Excellent place for a quick or long visit. Was just $5 to view the entire set of buildings. Awesome Route 66 exhibit.

A neat little museum with lots of antique cars and motorcycles, and plenty of Route 66 signs. There's an inexplicable room full of Popeye memorabilia, which is both baffling and very impressive. They have a nice gift shop with plenty of books about Route 66, and all the souvenirs you could ever want.

No longer free. $3.00 for the two Route 66 museums. $5.00 for all 4 museums. and $4 for seniors - 60 and up. Not bad - still reasonable and lots of fun. Well worth the four mile drive from I 40.
