The National Route 66 Museum focuses on the people who lived, worked and traveled the “Mother Road” and offers visitors a classic walk through all eight states, highlighted by realistic murals and vignettes depicting the eras of the road and the interesting places that made Route 66 so famous. As you travel along, you can listen to recorded histories and personal accounts of the road from overhead audio kiosks.

The Elk City Museum Complex allows you to immerse yourself in Oklahoma pioneer history. The Old Town Museum includes a Victorian-era house with displays and artifacts that give a glimpse into the lives of early settlers in Western Oklahoma. The Farm and Ranch Museum celebrates Oklahoma’s agricultural heritage. While you’re at the complex, make sure to visit the Blacksmith Museum to see how blacksmiths create metal objects. The complex is also home to replicas of a schoolhouse, opera house, doctor’s office, and a chapel.

Part of the complex is dedicated to the National Route 66 Museum & the National Transportation Museum. Take a journey through each of the eight states Route 66 passes through – from Illinois all the way to California. “Drive” down Route 66 in a 1955 pink Cadillac and watch a black and white movie at a mock drive-in theater while sitting in a classic Chevy Impala.
