Dot's Mini Museum


105 N. 12th St.


Other Info
Open during daylight hours

It is off the beaten track yet listed as a Route 66 Roadside Attraction. It was ran by the late Dot Levitt. She came to Vega in the 1940s with her husband Harold and they ran a store (Vega Zero Lockers) which offered freezing storage for the locals.

Her "Museum" exhibits plenty of memorabilia she collected during her long life in Texas, spanning cowboy articles, an Avon perfume bottle collection and Route 66 items.

Dot's daughter Betty Carpenter has kept the museum open.


The character “Lizzie” from the 2006 Disney/Pixar movie, “Cars,” seems do be based on Dot (and a bit of Lucille Hamons from Hydro, OK). To read more about sites that inspired “Cars” be sure to read Ron Warnick’s blog – Route 66 News
