I had written this review in May of 2014 just after we went to the Unser Racing Museum, but writing my review so late, the earliest date I could put in was April 2016. My husband and I are NASCAR fans and took my sister and brother-in-law here - we all enjoyed it very much. The museum is very spacious... More

It was cool to see all the different cars and not all are race cars. If you can, try the race car simulator, I thought it was scary to go 150 mph.

I am a racing fan and knew the Unser name. It was interesting to see all the cars from the different periods, and they have 5 main areas of exhibits. They seemed to have lost interest after the mid 2000's as none of the exhibits were updated after that. Still worth it, thought a bit of an effort to find.

We stopped at this museum as my husband loves cars. The museum has two buildings. The first and main buildings has a movie of the Unser family and the history of the cars and races in the back of the building. The middle of the museum is one of the cars with wings off this area. Suits, cars, race info,... More

A huge surprise! We visited the Unser Museum because my husband has an interest in automobilia but not necessary racing. However, we'd grown up hearing the Unser family name on various Sports channels. Upon arrival, the docent explained the history, the layout of the rooms, and the family tree. We were then left on our own to look at the... More

I went here with my sister and niece when they were in town. My niece is a big Auto Racing fan, and was very impressed, my sister and I are not big fans, but were mildly interested. There are two different buildings on the site, be sure to visit both of them.

The Unser Racing Museum in Northwest Albuquerque is a must see attraction when visiting Albuquerque! You don't even have to be a racing enthusiast to enjoy and appreciate this well put-together collection of historic racing cars and their stories. The Unser Family has been in and around Auto Racing for many decades and their combined stories are uniquely woven together... More
