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.

  • Fun stop on our cross country trip. Lots of neat exhibits to explore and a great gift shop at the end as well. Inexpensive to see as well.

  • Great place to connect with some of the history of Route 66. We all enjoyed walking through the galleries, and learning a bit more. You can spend as much time as you want, and there is a lot of content. Also the gift shop is reasonably priced. Do wish the classic diner outside was operated and served at least beverages. That would be really awesome.
  • TOO SMALL FOR PRICE OF ADMISSION: A very well curated and displayed collection of memorabilia, staged by the decade, encompassing the history of Route 66. However, at $14 to enter, I expected to see a larger collection, perhaps double in size of what I experienced. The Souvenir shop is well organized, and has reasonable prices. A nice, but very brief excursion for the price. FOUR STARS
