  • This is a very nicely planned, well done and maintained museum, that included four different museum buildings as well as the antique village. We were impressed with all the memorabilia collected. From antique farm equipment to the recreated village with store fronts. The two story home filled with memories of the past, including a second floor Rodeo museum was interesting. Well worth the $5 and a must see for Rt66 history.
  • Unique museum experience with miniature town set up. I liked the recreated beauty shop and seeing the women's fashions. A holistic view of yesteryear, very nice :)
  • A great collection of historical items located in period buildings with a focus on local history related to the rise and fall of Route 66. Walking the grounds you can peek inside windows to see complete historical scenes in the businesses that once populated Route 66 in the area. There is a working blacksmith shop where customers are encouraged to interact, ask questions and participate. A great stop for all ages on our cross country trip.
  • Neat little place to visit. Great photo ops. Good to stretch your legs.
  • My fiancé and I were visiting his hometown and we decided to get out and explore elk city since I've never been there. When we arrived at the old town museum we were impressed with all the antiques and artifacts. We were curious about what was in the house so we ventured inside where we were "greeted" very rudely. As the elderly female attendant spoke to us, she seemed irritated that we had even stepped foot in the house. Our greeting was "Hi, do you have tickets?!" My fiancée response was "No ma'm, she's from the city and she just wanted to look around" her response was "well you have to have tickets to be in here". We would have had no problem buying tickets to enter had we we known prior, but she never gave us information after on how to get tickets, and was very snobby about even talking to us, so my fiancé said ok and we walked out. As two born and raised Oklahomans it bothers us that tourist attraction attendants in our state would treat tourists this way. She had no idea where we were from, we could have been from anywhere. Overall, we still had a great time exploring everything else, but we will not be returning to the Old Town Museum.
