For the ultimate Route 66 experience, visit the Oklahoma Route 66 Museum in Clinton, OK. The museum’s galleries were recently redesigned in 2012 to offer visitors a personal journey through the history of the nation’s most revered highway. Encounter the iconic ideas, images and myths of the Mother Road. Learn about the dreams and labor needed to make the road a reality. Experience the Dust Bowl as thousands streamed along the road, away from drought and despair and towards the “land of promise.” Listen to the sounds of the Big Band Era, when the roar of the big trucks and the welcome home cries to returning soldiers dominated the road. Touch the counter and sit in the booth of the 1950’s diner and feel the open road as America’s families vacationed along the length of Route 66. The museum also offers changing special exhibits, focusing on the Rt. 66 experience.

  • This was a great museum, full of artifacts, information, and videos of the iconic 'Mother Road.' I think admission was only $7 or so, without any discounts or anything, which is a pretty good deal. If education isn't your thing, don't worry, there's tons to see here that is just plain neat. Although I have to imagine this would be ideal for a history report or something for kids as well. Great staff, great collection, clean and fully functioning museum... a real treasure in the middle of Oklahoma!
  • This place is so cool. Having watched the TV show (back in the sixties) I just had to stop in! I am on a road trip in my Corvette convertible. I wish my buddy Joe had been with me. RIP my dear friend.
