The Museum Club in Flagstaff has historically
attracted famous musicians and bands. Located right on Route 66,
it was and still is, a natural stop for bands touring the West.
You'll see posters and photos on the Club's
walls... new and old memories of the many famous
singers and groups that have played there. Willie, Waylon,
and many more.
Asleep At The Wheel, Urban Country, and Mogollon are among those making
appearances at the club these days.
The history of the Club's building is interesting in its own
right. The building was built between 1916 and 1931, and utilized
some of the trees growing on the property as building supports...
right where they stood! These trees are still on the job, as you
can see in this interior photo.
The building opened in 1931 as a taxidermy
shop. The business soon expanded to include an Indian
Trading Post, and several years later found its destiny... it became a Roadhouse
along the Mother Road, Route 66.
Why is The Museum Club affectionately known locally as The Zoo?
Presumably because of the examples of taxidermy art in the club.
Museum Club in Flagstaff and its history (and ghosts) is featured in detail
on the website Legends of America. I've never seen a ghost the
club myself, but I can tell you...
The Museum Club in Flagstaff now serves a great hamburger
lunch special (and more). Recently, we stopped in for lunch and enjoyed
both the lunch and the atmosphere.
