Old yet fully alive, The Museum Club is a national and state historic landmark that continues to bring the party, despite being built almost 90 years ago. Built in 1931, The Museum Club was one of the original Route 66 Roadhouses, and in 1936, after Prohibition ended, the 5,000-square-foot (500-square-meter) log cabin became a bar. During your visit, you will find two full bars, 12 booths, table seating, an outdoor patio, and a full menu of casual foods.
