Litchfield Museum & Route 66 Welcome Center

Route 66 holds a romantic place in American culture, and Litchfield has always been a big part of that culture. Now visitors learn more about our community and experience our part of Route 66 history when visiting the Litchfield Museum & Route 66 Welcome Center.

The museum features displays of items ranging from period automobiles to small tokens that represent historical significance to the area.
