History Museum Extends Route 66 Exhibit After Large Crowds

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A special exhibit about Route 66 through Springfield has been so well received, it will stick around a little longer.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Grandparents day is now just four days away.   If you need last second ideas, one may be a walk back in time at the Springfield History Museum.
It has a new sign just off the downtown square and could really be a place to spend any type of day.

You may have noticed the museum more than ever with the newest addition to the Springfield skyline - the return of a large sign atop the former Barth's building, which now houses the museum.

While the bright lights are nice to look at on the square, the museum has much more to offer actually inside.

John Sellers with the history museum visits with KOLR10's Justin Dougherty about current and future exhibits and the museum's planned expansion.  Watch the video above to see our conversation with John.

The Museum's special Route 66 has been on display since April 28 and was due to end on August 31.  But because of overwhelming response from local visitors and people from around the U.S. and internationally, the exhibit is being extended until February 2014.

And hear more about special fall events, including a Ghost Tour downtown.
