The story begins with early trade routes and the Beale Wagon Road, which enabled pioneers to cross the land in "prairie schooners" such as the one on display.An old Chevrolet truck and quotations from John Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath help you understand the tough times along Route 66 during the Great Depression of the 1930s. Storefronts, murals, and a 1950 Studebaker Champion car illustrate the good times of the post-war era.There are life size dioramas, photographs and murals capturing groups that have gone down the route
