If you love old cars, this is your stop.

This place has one of the best collections of restored autos within several hundred miles. I am amazed every time I go by.

We were camped right next door so thought we better take a look. Glad we did. Great antique car museum. Beautiful old cars and trucks. What a collection. If you are interested in old cars, this is the museum for you.

A little hard to find real close to Bernalillo and the Santa Ana Star Casino. Well worth the effort. All exhibits are roped off - but a great place to see a huge variety of old automobiles.

If you love and appreciate vintage cars and history, and shiny metal and chrome, visit J&R vintage auto Museum. It's big, it's quiet, it is packed with absolutely perfect specimen vehicles from Model Ts, and Packards, all the way up through the 1950s and 60s. Many car companies you've never heard of, many models and makes you've only dreamed of.... More

J&R Vintage Auto Museum may not be easy to find but it is well worth the effort. The classic autos that have been collected are outstanding. A large number of them appeared is several Great American Road Races. You can see Marmons, Packards, a T-Bird, an Edsel, Mack Trucks, and more. A varied and beautiful collection . Take the time...

A bit off the beaten path, this auto museum was awesome! We decided to try it after previous plans fell through and what a pleasant surprise! Plenty to see and drool over, there is a large selection of cars and information to keep you busy for a couple of hours.

Hubby is an old-car buff, so on a 'down' day at our home business, we went to J&R---it was very interesting and I even enjoyed the trip. It's not a place that I would want to go very often, who knows how often the 'attractions' change? But I liked it and it was a good and well-kept place.
