Owner description: Welcome to the Birthplace of HISTORIC Route 66! In 1987, Angel Delgadillo, the kindly crusader, led the charge to save the Main Street of America; Route 66. The Historic Route 66 Association of Arizona was formed to protect, promote, and preserve the Mother Road. The grassroots association and Angel's charisma have captured the world's attention. Today there are Route 66 associations worldwide.Angel and Vilma opened the very first Route 66 gift shop in 1987. The once pool hall and barber shop is now a unique blend of gift shop, barber shop, visitor center, and museum. The museum is dedicated to all the people who have made the pilgrimage to Historic Route 66 from all over the United States and the world. Your road trip is not complete until you experience living history at this Route 66 landmark!

First visit to not only Route 66 but to America and had to visit Seligman and Angel & Vilma's shop.
Situated on the dusty high street just past all the other many giftshops stands this bright gem, and what made it shine even brighter was that when we visited, Angel was working his trade and delighted myself with a wetshave as well as humour and antidotes. A true gem, a true modern icon and a definite highlight to our holiday (as well as a superb barber).
Thank you Angel.

Ps. The shop is superb also, with Angel signing gift.

If you're travelling the mother road in Arizona this is a definite must do. The whole town really signifies the feel of Route 66, and this is also the case with Angel and Vilma's Visitor Center. So much memorabilia and stories and you can't help spending in the gift shop just to say you bought it here. Fantastic place with loads of photo opportunities.

I believe this place is very well known on Route 66, but despite being very busy, all the staff had time to chat with everyone. We were all invited to help ourselves to free coffee and were made to feel very welcome.

The shop has lots of choice at reasonable prices, so if you're looking for that Route 66 memento, this is the place!

This is a great place to catch the vibe of route 66 and enjoy some 1950-60s flair. The shop is filled with anything you could want about route 66 and is fun to look at. It's covered in signage. Their are license plates from different cars from all over the world on the inside.


It's a small place but very cute and a must visit if you are looking for anything route 66 related.
