National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, Oklahoma City
This was one of my favourite attractions on Route 66. It boasts more than 28,000 exhibits celebrating Western and American Indian culture.
It houses a huge collection of artworks and historical artefacts including the American Cowboy Gallery, the American Rodeo Gallery, the Native American Gallery and the Weitzenhoffer Gallery of Fine American Firearms.
It also features Prosperity Junction, a 14,000-square-foot authentic turn-of-the-century Western prairie town. Visitors can stroll the streets, peek in some of the store windows and actually walk into some of the fully furnished buildings.
