My dad was happy about meeting and talking to a veteran in the war museum within the museum. Everything was vintage and adorable(some we're even for sale).

03.25.14: A lot of artifacts as related to Route 66. Interesting stuff for a quick stop off in Pontiac. Lots of other thing to look at within the building as well.

This is a historic building downtown that has different museum displays on different floors. The Rt 66 stuff is cool but the War Memorial is awesome! It was a fun trip with my kids and we walked down the street to the Poniac car museum which made the trip!

Very cool museum, though I'm going to warn you, there are loads of Route 66 museums along the road and after the first couple they really are all alike. Very similar exhibits and artifacts. Also, the gift shops all carry the same merchandise. Good thing is the museums are cheap, and it's nice to stop by and support what they're doing.

I am so happy I stopped and saw this museum. I especially love the map on the wall. I love maps anyway but this one was painted on and you can see all the stops on Route 66!
