Route 66 Museum [OK]

Exhibits at the Museum begin with "The World’s Largest Curio Cabinet," home of artifacts collected from along the route. Along the way visitors see vehicles and listen to music while they experience the history and culture of each decade, including road construction; transportation; lodging; restaurants; garages; curio shops; attractions; and other artifacts, graphics, and videos. At the end of their trip down the "Main Street of America," visitors can stop in the drive-in theater, viewing "The American Odyssey," narrated by Michael Wallis, an award-winning Route 66 historian.

The museum offers a short film and exhibits.
