  • Been here 4 times. Once, unfortunately, they were closed - our fault as we arrived at about 2:00AM and slept in the parking lot. Last time I saw it was 4 years ago. It was a sad time as we were riding out motorcycles along I-40 and everyone was too intent on motoring than stopping here. I looked to the left while riding and swore I could see the building. But the times that I have actually been inside were outstanding. Great souvenirs of Route 66. Great selection of books. It's the only place where I have seen the book for sale, "Route 66 - The Mother Road."
  • If you're going to do Route 66 then you need to stop and see this when you stop to see the other Museum in the same town. Would recommend going in the morning as they do not have air conditioning but the history on barbed wire is all there. The two museums in this town run on donations be sure just put three to five bucks toward the continuation of keeping the history alive
