Located on Route 66 in Elk City, the National Route 66 & Transportation Museum encompasses all eight states through which the Mother Road runs. See numerous artifacts, antique cars and rare historical documents that capture the spirit of Route 66.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 nearby museums that are part of the Elk City Museum Complex include the 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. Upstairs, the museum is dedicated to cowboy and rodeo memorabilia donated by the Beutler Brothers Rodeo Stock Producers. The Farm & Ranch Museum showcases tools of the trade from early farm life in western Oklahoma like tractors, barb wire collections and windmills. The Blacksmith Museum details how blacksmiths transformed iron and steel into useful objects by heating, hammering, bending and cutting. Displays include weapons, horseshoes and tools.

The latest addition to the museum is a replica of an old-fashioned general store that is fully open to the public. Several items throughout the store are antiques, some dating back over a hundred years. Walk through the building to see shelves stocked with late 19th-century merchandise including cast iron coffee grinders, saddles and an old manual washing machine.
