What is the Route 66 Experience?

The Experience

Located on the North end of Riverside Drive next to the Cyrus Avery Centennial Plaza, the proposed Route 66 Experience will be a multi-faceted center designed for maximum value and delight. Alongside its signature interpretive center, the Route 66 Experience will include a drive-in movie theater, two restaurants, visitor information center, retail shop, resource center, event space for rent, office or commercial space for lease, elevated pedestrian walkway, and three-level underground parking. Slated to open in 2022, the Experience is poised to bolster Tulsa tourism not only by attracting new visitors, but also by educating those already here about what Tulsa has to offer.

Interpretive center

With a mixture of permanent displays, rotating artifact collections, temporary exhibits and fully interactive audio-visual experiences, the interpretive center will be the definitive Route 66 destination for families and enthusiasts alike. This home of ultra-modern storytelling will resonate for the content that's presented and for the way it's experienced.
