    This is a must see if coming to Barstow. Real Americana from the cars, automobiles and roadsigns. So much to see and its run by volunteers and on a donation basis.  more »

    Great Museum with plenty on the war, on route 66... so much to see need to stop. Besides it's free but can leave a small tip because it is run by a very nice elderly couple!

    Held by volunteers this small museum worth little. Place along the sorting station was funded by 6 pairs of volunteers since 1987. The very old couple who greeted us was great and never failed to offer us help whatever our destination. Great little shop. Make sure you leave a Tip If you buy anything. Because the Museum is free.

    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.
