Devil's Rope Museum/Texas Route 66 Museum

Description

These twin institutions occupy a former Sears bra factory. The museum dedicated to barbed wire displays balls and bales of threatening razor wire in its many forms, as well as a machine for making it. On the other side, one of the better museums of Route 66 memorabilia contains such eclectic items as a giant steer from a defunct Route 66 restaurant, an abundance of the famous rhyming Burma Shave signs, a replica of a typical '50s cafe, and more. Nearby, visitors will find a beautifully preserved classic filling station from the 1920s -- a Phillips 66 (the name of which, incidentally, derived originally from the famous road). Museum hours are 10 AM to 4 PM, Tuesday through Saturday, and by appointment at other times. The museum is closed from December 1 to March 1.
