Welcome to the Route 66 Spirit of America Museum,
located in Stroud, Oklahoma
(halfway between Tulsa and Oklahoma City).

Declaration of Independence

The Declaration of Independence was written by people who saw that
the future could be a giant step forward from what existed today. They
were dreamers who knew their dream of progress – in this case
creating a nation based on collective self-rule rather than the rule of a
King – was possible.

The Wright Brothers

The Wright brothers also knew their dream of powered flight was possible.

And the men and women of NASA knew their dream of landing a man on the Moon was possible too.

What dreams are left to be fulfilled?

The Route 66 Spirit of America Museum explores the dreams America has achieved, what made achieving them possible, and those dreams America can achieve in the future!
