Maisel's Indian Trading Post is located in the city of Albuquerque, county of Bernalillo, in the U.S. state of New Mexico. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places listings in Bernalillo County, New Mexico in 1993.



Established by Morris and Syma Maisel in 1939 to cater to the new U.S. Route 66 tourist trade, this Pueblo Revival building was designed by architect John Gaw Meem. The building features murals designed by Olive Rush. Various murals depicting Indian life were painted by ten Pueblo and Navajo artists such as Narcisco Abeyta, Harrison Begay, and Awa Tsireh The trading post employed hundreds of native craftspeople in its heyday. It closed upon its founder's death, only to be reopened in the 1980s by Morris' grandson, Skip. It continues to trade as Skip Maisel's Indian Jewelry and Crafts.
