For the ultimate Route 66 experience, visit the Oklahoma Route 66 Museum in Clinton OK. The museum’s galleries have recently been redesigned to 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 labor needed to make the road a reality. Experience the dust bowl as thousands streamed along the road, away from drought and despair and towards 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 dominated the road. Touch the counter and sit in the booth of the 1950’s diner and feel the open road as America’s families vacationed along the length of Route 66.  The museum also offers changing special exhibits, focusing on the Rt. 66 experience.
