The Heart of Route 66 Auto Museum in Sapulpa, Oklahoma, will open for limited hours beginning June 1.
The museum originally was set to have limited hours in March but was pushed back.
The museum at 13 Sahoma Lake Road, just off Route 66 on the city’s west side, will feature vintage cars, exhibits about Route 66 and a 66-foot-tall vintage gas pump.
The announcement for a soft opening came with a scheduled town hall Friday by Oklahoma Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb, who got a sneak peek of the facility. Lamb was in the midst of his annual tour where he visits all of Oklahoma’s 77 counties.
Tax-deductible memberships for the museum still are available for $45 for two people, while a founding membership is $2,500 that includes lifetime admission to the museum for two, a plaque on the wall of the museum and 15 percent off purchases at the gift shop.
