Oklahoma Route 66 Museum

Clinton, Oklahoma

Opened in the fall of 1995, the Oklahoma Route 66 Museum gives the history of the Mother Road within Oklahoma the full treatment, and also has a terrific gift shop full of great stuff to take home from your Route 66 adventure.

The museum's building is an interesting structure in itself, having been designed to incorporate a number of highway, automotive, and travel motifs. For example, part of the roofline echoes the tailfin lines of 1950s American automobiles.

Added to the grounds of the museum more recently is a small restored diner which once saw actual duty on Route 66 in neighboring Texas.

The museum is directly across the highway from the Tradewinds Motel, whose claim to fame is that it was one of Elvis's favorite stopovers on his many trips to Hollywood.
