“You MUST see this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2012

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!!

“A must see for a Route 66 devotee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2012

If you are anywhere in the area, and have a love of the history and lore of Route 66 make the effort to stop in. Allow at least an hour and it really should take 2 hours if you include the Livingston County War Museum. As with all of the museums in Pontiac, admission is by donation only - how cool is that. They do ask that you sign their guest book. Plenty to see and worth a donation so take the time.

“Little museum with lots to see.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

This was a great little museum with Route 66 memorabilia. An amazing amount of history to see & enjoy. There was also a fantastic Route 66 mural on the back of the building in the alley -- complete with a drive-up area so you can park your car in front of the mural for a photo op.
