Located on Route 66 in Elk City, the National Route 66 & Transportation Museum encompasses all eight states through which the Mother Road runs. Visitors can see numerous artifacts and antique cars along rare historical documents that capture the spirit of Route 66. You won't be able to miss Myrtle, a giant kachina doll standing nearly two stories high at the museum entrance. While you're there, take a "drive" along Route 66 in a 1955 pink Cadillac or watch an old film at a theater. The museums part of the Elk City Museum Complex are Old Town Museum, Farm & Ranch Museum and Blacksmith Museum.

The Old Town Museum is based in a beautiful two-story Victorian house, where guests will find mementos of early day pioneer life, displays in the Stars & Stripes room, a Native American Gallery and more.

The Farm & Ranch Museum showcases tools of the trade from early farm life in western Oklahoma like tractors, barb wire collections and windmills.
