We were already in Tutumcari to visit th TeePee Curios so we didn't have to drive far to see this. Unless you are already in town I wouldn't recommend going there just for this .... it isn't very impressive.

It is one of the more modern sights on Route 66 and worth a closer look. Great spot for some art appreciation and group photos

Stopped at Route 66 Townhouse Welcome Center & Gift Shop and the lady there recommended we drive down the road to see this and the museum.

When you’re entering Tucumcari from the west, you’ll pass this sculpture commemorating Route 66. It’s a fun piece and a great opportunity for a photo.
