  • Awesome, cute little museum of the history of Rt. 66. We arrived a little before closing, but the staff was kind and let us do a quick tour and snap some pictures. Admission is donation based, but if you can swing it, you can tell it's going to a great effort to keep this place open. Definitely worth the stop.
  • A comprehensive history of route 66 and the surrounding area. Plenty to see along with some interesting video. Very nice staff. A must see if you are in the Tucumcari area.
  • Great history of not only Route 66 but of the local area! Great time showing and explaining to the kids about the importance of the Mother Road to America and our our town.
  • Nice car exhibit!
