They have a website for the museum, which is the RT66 Experience:
http://www.rt66exp.com/



They have an indiegogo crowd funding link on the website.   They are at 1% of their fundraising goal in the last year...

Says it's closed. May have been a cancelled idea.

I like this museum idea better than OK Pop.  Maybe someday it will be revived.  Who owns the land here?

It is CoT land, and the RT66 Experience has (had) a contract on it.

How did the OKPop museum jump ahead of this one?

Didn't OKPOP get $25M in state funds? Suspect the R66 Experience would be up and running if it had such a subsidy too.

Yes.  That's really my question.  This Route 66 Xperience has been in Tulsa's plans at least since the original Vision 2025 program.  It seems the OKPOP museum came out of nowhere more recently and snatched available funding.

The pop museum was proposed and backed by the State of Oklahoma Historical Society

The Route 66 Experience concept was developed as part of the Route 66 Master Plan which was funded by Vision 2025 in the early part of the program.  The initial concept proposed by the committee to the City Council was to expend the majority of the funds at that location to construct the visitors center as a way to draw in route travelers who otherwise by-pass Tulsa.  Oher than to purchase the site, create parking, construct the Ped. bridge and the Avery Bronze this approach didn't do over well with the Council and the project was shelved for a considerable time and other projects were brought forward to more spread the $ all along the Route. 

There were some dollars reserved for the project and the approach was developed to put it out as an RFP to design/build/operate the center.  There was (I believe) only one response and that local team was selected and began fundraising with some reported success but not to the levels required under the agreement which was extended and later modified and has as of last year run its course and is no longer in effect.  As of this writing, I am not aware of any current plans to proceed but I will inquire.
