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.
