  • Interesting collection begun many years ago by Mrs Wheelright. Extensive gift shop. Parking lot has no fee.
  • I highly recommend stopping by here. It's not really big, so if you don't have a lot of time to sight see it is a great spot. Beautiful old and new Native American apparel, jewelry, and art are on display. The trading post/gift shop downstairs is cute and has a good selection of jewelry, rugs, and books for sale. My toddler enjoyed it, but he's quiet and curious. I don't recommend it for young children in general. There are no displays geared toward kids. I think regular admission is $14.00 per person. We got in free because we're Native, but fellow New Mexicans enter at half price. Free admission every first Sunday of each month.
  • We really enjoyed our look around the museum. Remarkable jewelry collection arranged by artist and timeframe. Cochina dolls for sale in the gift shop too, which was unexpected.
  • Great attraction in New Mexico I highly recommend this museum
  • Amazing collection. Worth seeing for sure!
