  • Small route66 museum. Little bits and pieces, any car and motorcycle, some jukeboxarna and some other old gadgets. It's free so it might be worth a visit if you are passing Barstow. Located at the old train station and railway museum are also available.

  • This museum seems to go on and on. Lots of information, great displays, focuses on 1950's and 60's. I would go here again. 
  • This is a well laid out museum which tell the story of Route 66 very well. Of particular interest are the extremely moving quotes taken from John Steinbeck's famous novel the Grapes of Wrath.

  • 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.
  • Just keep driving past this. Not worth a stop. Not even a restroom stop.
  • 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.
