Friendly & knowledgable - but not annoying or clingy greeting person. Truly impressive displays. Very clean, bright, roomy (except for military museum upstairs which was claustrophobic - but ya can't have both space & stuff). Building was outstanding - they just don't build like that anymore. Gorgeous wood restored to it's former glory. (One room with art was a jail cell...)

Any travelers on route 66 need to make sure that they stop here and walk around the many floors of exhibits. There’s so much to see and so much history. There’s also vintage toys and military artifacts. People are so friendly and welcoming - Wonderful stop!!!

We did the entire old RT 66 trip in one shot. This was our first RT 66 museum / attraction that we stopped at during our trip. This museum, and the others attached to it, set a benchmark that no other museum / attraction could match! I love to photograph the eccentric, esoteric, eclectic, and there was enough to fascinate me for over an hour in just that one museum alone. We really appreciate the collections, the displays, the narrations, and the effort put into building the spirit of RT 66! I love the display of the hippie van. Great bathroom facilities.
