Specialty Museum Museum
For the ultimate Route 66 experience, visit the Oklahoma Route 66 Museum in Clinton, OK. The museum’s galleries were recently redesigned in 2012 to offer visitors a personal journey through the history of the nation’s most revered highway. Encounter the iconic ideas, images and myths of the Mother Road. Learn about the dreams and labor needed to make the road a reality. Experience the Dust Bowl as thousands streamed along the road, away from drought and despair and towards the “land of promise.” Listen to the sounds of the Big Band Era, when the roar of the big trucks and the welcome home cries to returning soldiers dominated the road. Touch the counter and sit in the booth of the 1950’s diner and feel the open road as America’s families vacationed along the length of Route 66. The museum also offers changing special exhibits, focusing on the Rt. 66 experience.

  • The museum and grounds are nice. The museum director emailed and corrected the error in charges. They advertise a family rate "up to 6". We were charged for each member after asking about family rate. Employees adamant that the rate was for only families on 6, while the website says "up to 6". Don't get cheated as we did, dishonest employees.
  • It was a nice place to stop and walk though. The staff was polite. There was quite a bit to see in the museum
  • Very Nice!! Loved the History trip and all the info. Now my girls want to do "The Mother Road" trip!
  • This is one of the best Route 66 museums I've seen. The souvenirs were less than at most other shops. If you're cruising the mother road check this one out.
  • Well worth the admission price. Be sure to watch movie in next to last exhibit room. Ken Burns couldn't do a better production.
