I would suggest starting in the 'upper' museum. This one is the history of the town, its namesake, mines, and the area. Headsets are provided so as you walk through you are told about what you are seeing. The downstairs is setup like the old...More

Good collection on western art, landscapes and bronze. Downstairs has a wonderful recreation of life in the early years of the town.

Worth an extended tour. Inside this vast museum are some wonderful stories and fine art. Experience an era of simpler life and hands-on living.

We visited the Desert Caballeros Museum primarily to see some Steve Getzwiller's extensive collection of Navajo rugs...and it was well worth it. The collection was well presented (though the lighting was a little difficult for photos), diverse and comprehensive. Very reasonable entrance fee for what...More

I hope the title wasn't misleading, but only because I didn't expect the museum to be bad, it was just even better than I thought it was going to be! I would especially recommend checking out the Frederic Remington bronzes. They are quite impressive.

They do have facilities for wheelchair bound attendees. They do have an elevator so from that point, I guess they do "have" wheelchairs, if that was the purpose of the question.
