Route 66 Museum.

National Route 66 Museum

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.

National Route 66 Museum

This museum commemorates the popularity of Route 66. It has memorabilia from by-gone days, and the building facade resembles different stores that were seen on the main streets of America in those days. It is located next door to an Old Town Museum and a Farm and Ranch Museum.

[L.Musgrove, 02/10/2005]

Two colorful Kachina statues, approx. 16 ft. tall, stand at the museum, relics of the Queenan Trading Post on Route 66. Wanda Queenan is the museum's curator.
