Route 66 is such an integral part of Illinois history that this museum is a must see. Lot's of room to wander around, be sure to see the bus in back. Plan on a lot of time if you want to walk down memory lane! We got there too close to closing to enjoy the war museum but did get through the 40's part of the museum complex. Gift shop has a wide selection of Route 66 souvenirs. Was very impressed with the whole experience and will go back. You must take this in!!
