Plan Your Visit
COVID 19 STATUS: As a non-profit, we are dependent upon volunteer availability for staffing and a large portion of our volunteers are older, retired members. Both the COVID-19 pandemic and the excessive heat (the Barn loft is not air-conditioned) have affected our ability to keep the Barn open 7-days a week. Please check our social media channels or this website for schedule updates.
The Arcadia Round Barn is located at 107 Highway 66 in Arcadia, six miles east of Interstate 35.
The barn is usually open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. except Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
The barn is sometimes closed for severe weather, so if there’s snow or ice on the road, call (405) 396-2286 to make sure we are open.
Museum and Gift Shop
The downstairs level is a museum and gift shop. Guided tours are available.
The museum features the story of how the barn was built in 1898 and how it became a museum nearly 100 years later. Visitors also learn about the history of Arcadia, Route 66 and the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railway.
Exhibits include antique farm equipment, a beautifully restored railroad baggage cart, Route 66 memorabilia and artifacts from the early days of Arcadia and nearby homestead farms.
Cold bottled water is sold in the gift shop, and there are several restaurants and convenience stores nearby.
The domed loft is an architectural gem, accessible by exterior stairways. The loft was built with a hardwood floor, and in its early days was a dance hall and community gathering place as well as a place to store hay. These days the loft is often rented in the evenings for weddings and other special events.
