Oklahoma Route 66 Museum Recognized as Tripadvisor 2023 Travelers’ Choice Award Winner

CLINTON, Okla. — The Oklahoma Route 66 Museum announced it has been recognized by Tripadvisor as a 2023 Travelers’ Choice award winner for the top 10% of attractions worldwide. The coveted award celebrates businesses that have consistently received great traveler reviews on Tripadvisor over the last 12 months, placing these winners among the 10% of all listings on Tripadvisor globally.

“We are truly honored to receive this prestigious award,” said Oklahoma Route 66 Museum director Pat Smith. “We appreciate the continued support from visitors worldwide, other states, Oklahoma and locally. Thank you so much for this great award.”

The museum offers visitors a personal journey through the history of the nation’s most revered highway. Oklahoma still has more than 400 drivable miles of Route 66 today.

“Congratulations to the 2023 Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice winners,” said John Boris, chief growth officer at Tripadvisor. “The travel resurgence we’ve seen throughout the past year has even further heightened the competition. Earning a Travelers’ Choice Award demonstrates that you have provided great experiences to those who matter most: your guests. With changing expectations, continued labor shortages, and rising costs, this is no easy feat, and I am continually impressed with the hospitality industry’s resilience and ability to adapt. Cheers to another successful year!”
