Inside the beautifully restored Casa del Desierto , a 1911 Harvey House (architecturally significant railway inns named for their originator Fred Harvey), this museum documents life along the historic highway with some great old black-and-white photographs alongside eclectic relics, including a 1915 Ford Model T, a 1913 telephone switchboard and products made from locally mined minerals.

The excellent gift shop stocks Route 66 driving guides, maps and books.
