The Painted Desert Inn,  closed to patrons in 1963.  It reopened to the public as a historic museum in 2006.  It now holds displays about Route 66 and the Civilian Conservation Corps and shows Kabotie’s restored murals.




The Petrified Forest,, adjacent local to The Painted Desert,  made it possible to visit two national parks on the same day.
