Decade of Wheels is a car museum in Baxter Springs, Kansas which occupies multiple store fronts in a block on Historic Route 66 which is now under common ownership. The museum had a grand opening in 2018, but didn't start having open hours until late May of 2019.

The museum displays about 35 vehicles at a time and rotates the collection roughly quarterly. The displays are attractive and the vehicle descriptions are interesting, if a bit short. At this time, the collection doesn't seem to have a theme or be arranged in a way to tell a story. 

A 10th of the vehicles displayed are replicas of fictional vehicles, such as the Batmobile, Flintstones car, Back to the Future DeLorian, and Scooby Doo Mystery Machine. We were told that the Batmobile was being rotated out of being displayed, the week after we visited.

We belive that visitors with an average level of interest in automobiles will be satisfied with a half hour visit.
