  • It is one of the many museums on Route 66. For anyone who has come all the way from Chicago there is nothing new. For those visiting Barstow is a must to understand the history of this road.

  • Small museum, but it does have interesting things. If you are ever by it or just want to go do something go check it out. Would be 5 star but my sister got biten from a black ant outside : /
  • Literally this is the middle of nowhere and just like that a train depot and museum pop out of the sand! It was interesting seeing the Harvey House (now the museum) and the depot.
  • Pretty small museum, have a look at it. If you have time to stop by.
  • Its a cool stop to make, especially in the wee hours of the night when the scene has that ominous, creepy thrilling feel to it. Nice backgrounds for pictures.
  • Just keep driving past this. Not worth a stop. Not even a restroom stop.
