Known as the Mother Road and the Main Street of America, Route 66 plays an important role in American history and myth. But the famous road also has a story to tell about the St. Louis area and how it has changed. In Route 66: Main Street Through St. Louis we explore the local history of this world-famous highway. Come get your kicks by learning stories about the motels, custard stands, and tourist traps that could be found along the road as it passed through St. Louis. Visitors will see a number of artifacts ranging from gas pumps to roadside signs and will even get a chance to drive the road themselves.

Admission to this exhibition is FREE.

Organized by the Missouri History Museum.

Named by GO! Magazine Readers as St. Louis's Best Exhibit of 2017!
