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.

  • If you travel on the I40 throughout Oklahoma, worth a stop in Clinton. The Museum is open from 0900 hours and the entrance fee is $5 (4 for over 65).

In the souvenir shop after the Roundgang, you can buy T-Shirts, plaques, badges, etc..
