This was a cute little museum with lots of information. My only recommendation would be to sell more memorabilia. We really wanted some Route 66 souvenirs, but they did not have much.

Small collection of memorabilia from Route 66 doesn't take long to view. Interesting setups of diner, tourist cabin and gas station

I enjoyed the many displays of historical pictures and stories. Not large but big enough to spend some time there and take in the history of the mid-west.

Very interesting and informative. If you are a Route 66 follower, this is definitely worth a stop and best of all it is free.

Having criss-crossed the Interstate to follow Route 66 this was a welcome stop. An interesting free museum at the Library and a nice gift shop.

Nice little route 66 museum located inside the public library. The displays they put together are really nice and have a lot of old memorabilia. I recommend it if you're in town it's well worth seeing
