Route 66 Mobile Tour

Oklahoma Route 66 Museum

2229 Gary Boulevard, Clinton

Take a break from driving the historic highway and visiting properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places and visit the Oklahoma Historical Society's Oklahoma Route 66 Museum. The museum's galleries 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 the labor that made the road a reality. Experience the dust bowl as did the thousands who streamed away from drought and despair and toward 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 were clearly heard along the road. Sit at the counter or a booth in the 1950's diner and feel the open road as did all of those vacationing families. You just might hear their chatter over lunch.
