Route 66 Interpretive Center is at 400 E. SR 66 at jct. Mickey Clarkson Ave. Housed in the city's National Guard Armory, built by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) 1935-37, the center is unusual in that it features beds representing motels along the historic road from which visitors can watch videos about Route 66. A 20-minute documentary film is shown in the center's theater.
Seats from a Model A, a World War II Jeep and a '65 Mustang offer vantage points from which to watch clips from each vehicle's respective era. Billboards reminiscent of those that lined Route 66 also provide a link to the past.
Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 30 minutes minimum.
