The Elk City Museum Complex comprises five unique museums that offer a snapshot of pioneer and Route 66 history. The Old Town Museum, housed in a spacious territorial-era residence, features numerous displays that relate the social and economic progress of western Oklahoma. The National Route 66 Museum centers on the Mother Road, and the Farm and Ranch Museum contains early day farming equipment. The National Transportation Museum takes visitors through each of the eight states Route 66 runs through, and the Blacksmith Museum showcases how metal objects are made.

Explore an opera house, chapel, doctor's office, rock schoolhouse, grist mill, two sections of buildings housing replicas of early day Elk City businesses, a depot complete with a miniature train and a replica of Elk City as it was in the 1950s. Visitors will also enjoy a life-size buffalo and longhorn handcrafted in iron by a local Elk City resident. Make sure to visit the on-site Old Town Museum featuring rodeo memorabilia from the Beutler Brothers rodeo collection.
