This place is very clean. If you like cars, you will need about 2 hours or so to check it out thoroughly. If you don't like cars, it's still fun-many interactive things for kids and lots of interesting history relating to racing and the people who lived it. Super-clean bathrooms. Very reasonably priced admission.

We were in the area, having just visited Petroglyph National Monument and thought it might be fun to make a 30-minute stop at this museum about auto racing. None of us are racing fans, but it's often interesting to learn about areas outside your normal interest. Be careful how you approach the museum -- approaching from the west, you can't... More

I was invited to this museum without knowing that it was even in Albuqeurque. I was pleasantly surprised. There is a lot of information on the history of Pike's Peak, the Indianapolis 500 and their relationship with the Unser family. If you know about the Unsers, or even if you don't, I think you may find their collection of racing... More

Adults & kids will enjoy the tour, there is a cool race car video game that kids will want to play. then you can go outside, and they have a indycar for you to get in and take pictures. I made a small video of the museum, here's the link : https://youtu.be/yf3E9DmpsC8

Great place to visit if your into racing history or a car enthusiasts. Lots of the old racing technology and new. Some very nice race cars and lots of Unsers trophies and race memorabilia. I would highly recommend you make this a pit stop!! (pun intended).

Although we live in Albuquerque, we had never visited the Unser Museum until today. After getting a rave report from a friend, we decided we needed to visit. We shouldn't have waited so long. This is a great place to spend some time. Great history, wonderful cars and memorabilia all offered in a very nice presentation with the help of... More

The museum is very well laid out. Chock full of cars, engines, tires, memoribilia. The Docents are very friendly and informative without being too attentive.

We got there 30 minutes before closing but the lady told us she would let us in for half price and we could stay an extra 30 minutes. She gave us an excellent overview and a volunteer took us to the second building. Both were very informative and made us feel we were on a tour made for us. Al... More
