The Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian


  The Wheelwright Museum is small with several gallery featuring changing exhibits of thought-provoking contemporary artwork by local Native American artists. Jewelry, mainly silversmithing and other forms of metalwork, is displayed in the permanent collection gallery. The exhibits trace Native American jewelry making from the 1870s to the present with a focus on specific areas and artists from the Navajo and Pueblo reservations.

  The museum is accessible. The entry doors are huge but well balanced so they open fairly easily.

Small RVs will fit in the upper lot. The lower lot is large enough for RVs but it’s surfaced with large gravel which making rolling difficult. Museum  35.66284, -105.92783

  1. How long are you in the area? We are in Los Alamos.

    1. We had a very enjoyable visit with our friend but we had to escape the cold so we're on our way south - boondocking near Polvadera, NM tonight.(the Nov. 28th posts are out of order)

      Sorry we missed you! Hopefully we'll met up on the road someday!
