From April 13 through May 10, 2014, all exhibitions at the Wheelwright will be under construction. Not only are we installing a new exhibition in our main gallery; we are also in the midst of a major expansion that will double our exhibition space and our space for public programming.

During this time the museum’s shop, the Case Trading Post, will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The oldest continuously operating Native American art gallery in Santa Fe, the Case Trading Post is a great destination and well worth a visit.

Please join us on Sunday, May 11 for the public opening of photographs by Will Wilson. And please follow our website for information about the Wheelwright’s Center for the Study of Southwestern Jewelry, scheduled to open in Summer 2015.


The Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian offers unique exhibitions of contemporary and historic Native American art. We’re famous for our focus on little-known genres and for solo shows by living Native American artists. We originate every exhibition, bringing you new research, fresh perspectives, and rich, lively visual expression.

Our museum shop, the Case Trading Post, features the best in contemporary craft and fine arts by more than 200 Native American artists, as well as a great selection of vintage and antique jewelry, ceramics, and textiles.

Founded in 1937, The Wheelwright is New Mexico’s oldest non-profit, independent museum. We’re open seven days a week, and admission is free.
