The Unser Racing Museum is a testament to the achievements of this racing family. There are several Indy 500 winning cars as well as many other winning race cars. The glass encased trophy room is unlike any I have ever seen. If you have any interest in racing, or in cars in general, this is a must. You can see... More

Well worth the time if you love cars and racing. Incredible race cars on display along with historical Motorcycles. As a privately owned museum, the Unser family of Racers gives visitors to the Albuquerque area a treat; if you know a lot or a little about Auto Racing, you will enjoy your time viewing what the Unser are presenting to...

The museum consists of 2 buildings which include race cars, vintage cars, memorabilia, art work, trophies and a gift shop. It was clean and comfortable and my husband, who is a racing car fan, loved it. Even I enjoyed it and I don't follow racing! We had a wonderful docent named Tom who has been there for years and knows... More

One of the most interesting museums ever. I'm not too familiar with racing, but went with my sister who is. Fantastic history and learning experience. She was thrilled to see so many items she knew about from decades of attendig races. Cars were in pristine condition, and great videos. I highly recommend for any age. Lots of hands on activities...

Very cool racing museum with many fun and interesting things about the Unser's, racing and there lives. Was very lucky to meet Al Unser Sr. the day we were there and got to talk about racing with a real legend. Was enjoyed by all in the family, even the ones not so interested with racing. Found it "really cool".

We are not racing fans, but we really enjoyed our visit! The employee and volunteer who helped us were super friendly and knowledgeable. The museum is well organized and lots of different cars from different kind of racing and different eras. And the trophy room? Wow! Lots of fun.

Certainly a must for any racing fan, and if you are lucky you might meet one of the Unsers there. Lots of cars, photos, history, etc. about the Unser family and their history of cars and racing. I am not especially interested in racing but the others I was with are, and we all found something interesting there. It is... More

My car-fanatic brother was in town and he wanted to go to this place. I went along as it was his first time in New Mexico. Absolutely first rate! I was amazed how fascinating it all was, very friendly tour persons, beautiful cars and a great story for each one. My brother and I got to "test drive" a simulated... More

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this museum. This place is a real gem. I never realized the amount of history the Unser family had.
