My 18 year son and I decided this was one of the places we would visit on our road trip to Albuquerque. My son likes his cars, and there were plenty on display along with videos and history of the Unser family. We visited both museum buildings on the property. Quite a collection of cars! My son was disappointed that... More

Living here in Albuquerque I drive past this place a lot, finally decided during one of our "staycations" that we needed to stop and check it out. Man was I impressed - it doesn't look as large as it is from the street. There is a lot of history in this place, and beautiful cars. An added bonus, your admission... More

My husband is the car buff. I expected this to be mostly about the Unsers and there is a lot about them. But the family history humanized the whole thing, and the museum is equally about the development of mechanized racing, and automobile history in general, especially related to engines. I particularly liked the section on how bicycles became motorcycles... More

Great place to see Racing History. My brother talked me into going and while we were there Al Unser came up to us and started talking. Asked him all kinds of questions and it was a great day and got to get our picture with him. Highly recommended for kids and those who remember the Unsers Indy racing days.

Took my racecar obsessed preschooler thinking this would be an instant hit. The museum is very well done, the staff is friendly, and even as a non-race fan, I thought the displays were interesting, particularly on this history of racing and the history of the Uncer children. That said, it was more frustrating than fun for my kiddo- nearly everything... More

I have been to several race museums. This one was tastefully done. Tour guides were close by to answer questions, but left you alone to take it all in. Car exhibits were the real deal. All exhibits were really great....

Spoke design in main museum where you can explore as much as you want. Lots of history and cars to explore. There's a second part to the museum in another building where there's a mock-up of the Unser garage along with some older vehicles and artwork. Well worth a stop!
