Good local color

These murals are well done and easy to see. Several were within walking distance of my hotel. Nostalgia buffs will love them.

Worth looking at if you are interested in local art. Not museum quality, but very good none the less. I enjoyed them, others in my party weren't as impressed..

We visited this little city on Route 66 - as most towns on this route, it hurts economically. While the town is attempting to renew itself, it has a long way to go. We attended a festival that was advertised heavily via flyers-but we were surprised to see how few people attended, There were vendors, bands, demonstrations, etc. and appeared... More

As with most American towns, it's bigger than you think! So I'd recommend driving on the mural treasure hunt; although if you want to make a whole afternoon of it then you can walk it. The murals are beautiful and it was fun trying to find them all.

I had read about the Tucumcari Murals online and was anxious to see them once we arrived in town. It was fun to drive around town and locate them. They are on many of the building throughout town. Great creative artwork.

Some great murals around town - we found in excess of twenty. Very well done and highly photogenic. Tucumcari translates from the Indian as "Look Out" - good advice and you will see some great murals.

Nice touch to bring alive the Route 66 experience. So if you are really into the history and thrill of traveling the Mother Road, you will enjoy the murals.

On the back of a motorcycle, it was easy to get lots of pictures of the different murals on buildings on Route 66. I am not sure what my husband was able to see (he was driving) but lucky for him, I took pictures he can look at later...

As we were driving around looking at a few of the wall murals, we had a lady from the Chamber of Commerce stop and give us a map of all the murals in Tucumcari. This was very helpful. We were able to select the ones that we wanted to see and were able to find them easily so we could... More

I loved walking around shooting the ones near the motel and ended up stopping at several more on my way out of town. They're very well done.
