A folk-art classic, the Tinkertown Museum stands just up Sandia Crest Rd (NM 165), west of Cedar Crest. Huge, detailed handcarved dioramas of Western towns, circuses and other scenes come alive with a quarter. Woodcarver and wisdom collector Ross J Ward, who passed away in 2002, built it and surrounded it with antique toys, ‘junque’ (fancy junk) and suggestions that you eat more mangoes naked.
