Visited while doing Route 66 and the curator was friendly. Not sure what we expected but we only spent 5-10 minutes in there. If you love happy meal toys it's for you. Thought probably foolishly it would have more original equipment etc

Cool place to kill some time while in the area. Impressive collection of happy meal toys, pictures, etc. I wouldn't recommend making a special trip to visit it but def worth a stop if you're in the area!

I had a very small understanding of the history of McDonalds and learned a lot from my visit. After visiting be sure to watch the movie "The Founder" for more of the story of McDonald's. Did I mention that this is FREE?

Ties up the rest of the story of the movie "Founder". LOTS of the early history of the company, with stories, pictures, and items from the first days of the McDonalds brothers. Fascinating to walk thru and see how the company grew thru the years....More
