Small, but interesting. Do not go expecting a large museum.

It is nice this is included in a three museum package. The tickets are inexpensive. Lots of information on the origin of Route 66 as well as the railroad.

We stopped by here on the recommendation of a friend. We are Southern California natives and grew up driving portions of Route 66, but this museum gave us a better insight into what it took to build the road, and the experiences of those folks whose lives were changed because of it. Some of the exhibits looked a bit dusty,... More

In Kingman overnight so we checked out the Rte 66 Museum. Not bad for a small town museum...we got there less than an hour before closing so we paid no admission. The exhibits feature some interesting history of the area's development and regional background related to the dustbowl.

There are several museums on Route 66. Make this one of your stops. Lots of history about the dustbowl.

We didn't learn anything new at this museum but it's a good Route 66 stop for the $4 admission price. My husband actually found the historic powerhouse that houses the museum to be as interesting as the museum itself. If your travels take you through Kingman, it's a nice 60 minute (or less) stop.

For one small admission price ($4) you get entry to four different "museums", whether you want to go to all four or not!! There is a 60 minute movie to watch at the main museum, but we did not have the time or patience for that. The townsfolk seem a little like those in "Rosemary's Baby"...the only young people spotted... More

We were doing a Route 66 trip in Arizona and were really excited to make it to the museum. $4 entry fee was reasonable, but the museum itself was small. Mostly history of why Route 66 was constructed. One display was 4 four foot high reprints of pages of the Grapes of Wrath. I had the pleasure of reading that... More

Some really good displays and history of the lives of the people who used Route 66 over the years. It's only $4 entry and we're so glad we drove 10 minutes down the road to visit

The museum is in an old powerhouse. It is a good museum with some good displays and information. This would be a family visit place. Lots of photos, art work and memorabilia. Electric car room in basement..it is fun to see early vehicles.
