Wheelwright Museum Of The American Indian
Mary Cabot Wheelwright founded this museum in 1937 as a way to preserve the traditional Navajo religion. Over the years, the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian has undergone several transformations and currently houses an amazing display of traditional and contemporary Native American arts and crafts. The exhibits are on a four-month rotation, so you can always encounter something new. At The Case Trading Post Museum Shop, you can purchase books, jewelry, kachinas and more. Admission and most of the events are free, but donations are accepted.
