  • A rather small museum with limited information about the "Mother Road", we did enjoy our visit and saw some things we had not seen before at other musuems. 
  • This entire town should get the recognition it deserves! And the museum and other things to do in that little town are amazing! We met the mayor and if he's anything like he was to us, I'd like to see him run for president! I can't wait to go back there again!
  • First of all, why would you drive by a town called Pontiac without stopping at the Route 66 Museum? Great memorabilia and it's quite large. Nicely displayed. Admission is by optional donation. Helpful staff. Glad I stopped.
  • We had a great time visiting all the museum's in Pontiac. Best part about it they are all free. They do accept donations.
  • Great little place to visit. 3 stories of floor space to visit. Each floor is something a little different. The building is an old firehouse that was converted. On the back of the build is the Route 66 Mural. And if luck the Bob Waldmire Bus.
  • The murals and the museums are completely free. The stuff is really kind, and the expos are full of curious and historic things. Must stop for R66 travelers.
