This is definitely a one-of-a-kind museum. Take the guided tour and then sit back on beds or vintage auto seats and view several videos, each featuring part or the historical route 66 highway. Each video is 3 to 5 minutes except for the theater room.

This place certainly makes a good entrance when it comes to luring tourists inside. It's a former Armory, built during the 1930s. They say the walls are 20 inches thick, so this place will be here for a while. The Oklahoma National Guard left it...More
