Journey through the history of Route 66 in Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Route 66 Museum in Clinton takes visitors on a tale through time with memorabilia, informative displays, and recreated scenes. Pull over when you see the bright red neon sign and the bright red vintage car in the window and stay awhile to check out everything inside.

Operated by the Oklahoma Historical Society, the Oklahoma Route 66 Museum opened in 1995 and takes travelers for a journey across the Mother Road and through history. Each room of the museum is structured around a different theme and has accompanying music (songs like Glenn Miller’s “In the Mood,” Elvis Presley’s “Heartbreak Hotel,” Woody Guthrie’s “Will Rogers Highway,” and the Eagles’ “Hotel California” play on speakers) that immerse you in the experience.

Informative displays teach visitors about the different eras of road travel. Find themes like diners and drive-ins, roadside motels, and roadside attractions; and important historical events that shaped Route 66’s impact on the country.

Interactive exhibits take you into a vintage diner, a 1960s hippie van, and a family station wagon. Artifacts and mementos show you authentic pieces of Mother Road history. And video displays take you deeper into the historic moments that shaped The Mother Road.
