Fabulous treasure trove of memorabilia. Several interactive photo ops...won't spoil it, go see for yourself. Would take days to read each display. Very welcoming to all nationalities. They have handouts in multiple languages. No cover charge, but they accept donations. Well stocked little shop.

Located on the old Route 66 in Historic Downtown Victorville. The museum is admission free. The staff are knowledgeable and energetic. The exhibits cover a variety of topics related to Route 66 and Victorville. I spent about an hour in the museum.

Well worth stopping by, provides some good history and memorabilia of Route 66 and the surrounding area. Is free and staffed by friendly volunteers. There is a great gift shop - I particularly liked the Pete Morris Route 66 Prints.
