Welcome to the Birthplace of HISTORIC Route 66! In 1987, Angel Delgadillo, the kindly crusader, led the charge to save the Main Street of America; Route 66. The Historic Route 66 Association of Arizona was formed to protect, promote, and preserve the Mother Road. The grassroots association and Angel's charisma have captured the world's attention. Today there are Route 66 associations worldwide.Angel and Vilma opened the very first Route 66 gift shop in 1987. The once pool hall and barber shop is now a unique blend of gift shop, barber shop, visitor center, and museum. The museum is dedicated to all the people who have made the pilgrimage to Historic Route 66 from all over the United States and the world. Your road trip is not complete until you experience living history at this Route 66 landmark!

Really cool gift shop on the Route 66! You can literally find Everything! Nice and friendly guys! They collect banknotes from the world and leave them on the wall for everybody to see! We left one from the emirates!

This is a must see place and town,very interesting store with very diverse collections of souvenirs, a nice 'homage' to Angel the barber in the barbershop, he and his wife were key drivers to the success of Seligman's route 66 charm and must see locations

My wife and I were on a very interesting but gruelling group tour last January. On our way from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon, while enjoying the off-beaten path road scenery and perhaps my mind was already imagining of what to expect in Grand Canyon, I didn’t catch what our Tour Director might have mentioned about our next restroom and...

Nice piece of history but definitely a tourist trap. It's a great photo op and the old barber room felt like a step back in time.

If you want to purchase some Route66 merchandise, this is the best place to get it, Angel is the man behind the resurgence of route 66 and the reason that any of it is left. Free coffee whilst browsing too.

Historic place but not much to look at. As for being a route 66 gift shop there are several in town with better selections.

Established and run by true and genuine Route 66 icons, this stop is a must-see. Apart from the usual R66 paraphernalia & trinkets, it offers some insight into the background of the R66 rave and the history of Seligman. You can also get drinks at A&V's.
