This was the Halstead Bank Building in 1917 then in the 1930s it became the Red Rooster Cafe and since 1995 it has been the California Route 66 Museum.

There are 4,500 square feet crammed full of Route 66 memorabilia. The museum is staffed by a very friendly and informative group of people. There is a fairly well stocked gift shop area full of Route 66 goodies.

A mural on the side of the building features the Joshua Drive-In Theater with a tribute image to the American Graffi movie.

Brownie, the railroad dog was the Victorville railroad station mascot during World War II. "I have information on the dog and marker." His marker stands beside the museum.
