$5 entry & we only had 45 min before it closed! Lots of pics with cars made up for their patience with the girls’ jewelry shopping in Santa Fe!

This gave us something to do for an hour!! Only $5 a person and lots of old classic cars and antiques to see! I don't think we would go back, but glad we stopped to add to the route 66 experience!

We came in and were treated like family. Very cool cars and trinkets. Looked at the very old and the very new. Will stop back in next time I'm passing through

Enjoyed checking out the museum. People were friendly. Displays were interesting. We were doing Route 66 Albuquerque to Amarillo. Lots of fun. To check out more pictures check out Facebook "Mother Road California to Chicago"

For a small museum, it had a lot of interesting types of cars. The owner was very friendly and he even sold us an old sign we were interested it and even came down on the price.

We just love a good collection of vintage cars and the Route 66 Auto Museum was one of the best. It was well kept, well organized and had more than the cars, it had auto history items, signs, tools, engines, etc. etc.

The car museum is definitely worth a visit. Lots of nice cars and trucks and artifacts from years gone by. Nicely displayed and clean. The kind of cars you'd be happy touring Rte. 66 in! There is also a nice gift store.

Well worth the detour. Many of the historic Route 66 signs in the interstate lead to disappointing and sometimes depressing detours to mostly rundown and shutdown small towns. This is a notable exception. They've done well to preserve some of the feeling of Route 66...More
