The Tucumcari Historical Museum is housed in the original 1903 schoolhouse. The museum is like one giant attic full of old stuff, from antique farm wagons and buggies to a 1926 fire engine and a caboose to a jet plane, this place has it all spread around the grounds and in several buildings. It is like a buried treasure.

They do have limited hours, I called in early June 2021 and was told it is only open 10AM to 3PM Tuesday thru Friday. I'd suggest calling them at 575-461-4201 to check the hours if you'd like to visit.

The museum is only one block north of the Measalands Dinosaur Museum on Adams Street, so it's easy enough to get to .

x About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
xDid You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned lanes are still there.
