Route 66 Experience Education Project

Route 66 was America’s mother road, passing through 8 states, connecting east to west. The road was decommissioned in 1985, however, Tulsa is looking to be its premier destination with the new Route 66 Experience, an interpretive center dedicated to teaching about the history of Route 66.

Museum Science and Management students were asked to design the interpretive center’s education department. Everything from lesson plans to outreach programs to job descriptions, the team built the department from the ground up.
