This whole area was a blast. You can drive your car right up on the brick and get a picture with you and your car in front of the sign. There are also several other murals and signs and other things to get pictures with all in this back lot. Even if you don't go look at the murals in the rest of Pontiac, this one lot is a ton of fun!

We are a hands-on, living history museum featuring displays, artifacts and uniforms of local soldiers from World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraq and Afghanistan. Our staff is made up of military veterans who are present to share their experiences with you. We are located next to the Route 66 Museum. Visited by guests from over 75 countries since 2004. Free admission. Free parking. Open 7 days a week Mon-Sat 10 - 4, Sun 12 - 4. See you on Route 66!
This museum is an absolute gem and a must see for every American who can get there. There was a lovely, kind gentleman working there who is a retired Sailor and was a wealth of knowledge. They have literally thousands of artifacts and so much to see. I knew there would be uniforms in the museum but what I didn’t know is that all of the uniforms belonged to individuals around the area who had each served their country. Each uniform has the person’s ribbons and medals as well, and a QR code you can scan for more pictures and information of that person. It was a surprisingly emotional experience and I’m so grateful this was recommended to us. Pontiac and it’s residents should be extremely proud of their dedication to the country, to history and to patriotism!

Loved following the footsteps in town and finding the murals painted by "Wall Digs," which we learned about at the museum. Of course, the footsteps take you past shops and restaurants, but what a great way to see Pontiac. Loved it!!
