Located on the second floor of the Powerhouse Building, our historic museum opened in May 2001. This delightful collection has been a stopping point for thousands of visitors who arrive from around the world to travel on Route 66 for adventure and education. Imaginative and ever-expanding displays present these modern-day explorers with a variety of information, including vehicles, photographs, and artifacts gathered over the history of “The Mother Road.”
Our small theater features a one-hour movie that tells the the story of Route 66 in Arizona. The Electric Car Museum, recently added, includes a fascinating selection of electric vehicles such as race cars, motorcycles, and autos—both old and new.
Groups (10 people, or more than 100) can be accommodated by combining the museum visit with a concurrent theater showing, a trip down the block to the Mohave Museum of History and Arts, and a visit across the street to Locomotive Park . The Bonelli House is another historic downtown attraction that can be considered for small groups.
All group visits to the Route 66 Museum, the Mohave Museum of History and Arts, and the Bonelli House are coordinated through the Mohave Museum of History and Arts at (928) 753-3195; or email email@example.com.

PLUS...Your entry pass to the Route 66 Museum has many additional benefits: The hour-long video in our small theater (seats about twenty people) shares the colorful history of Route 66, especially the "heart" of the section that includes the towns of Seligman and Kingman. In addition to the movie is the Electric Car Museum. With the photos below we share a selection of what you will enjoy and learn while you're there.
