The Oklahoma Route 66 Museum opened in 1995. The museum developed out of the Museum of Western Trails, which operated from 1968 until 1993. In 1991, the museum was transferred to the Oklahoma Historic Society which refocused the museum on transportation and Route 66. That made this the first Route 66 museum sponsored by a state.


This restored 1956 Valentine Diner was originally a Porter House Cafe that was moved from Shamrock, Texas. The diner closed in 1964.


There is also a Will Rogers Highway Marker here in front of the museum.

x About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
xDid You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned lanes are still there.
