Wheels Museum is a 501(c)3 organization in the Albuquerque Rail Yards dedicated to collecting, preserving, and creating educational exhibits about the history of transportation in Albuquerque and New Mexico with emphasis on the impact on the development of the area. Our collections embrace the history of the railroads, the impact of the rail yards on Albuquerque, as well as automobiles, horse and wagon, and other modes of transportation.
Wheels Museum is now open Monday – Thursday from 9 am to 12 pm and on Sunday from 10 am to 2 pm and by appointment. Note: As museum hours are subject to change without notification and may be different during special events, please call (505) 243-6269 prior to your visit.
Wheels Museum is located on the site of the historic Santa Fe Railroad Shops in downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico. Built-in 1914, the Albuquerque shops serviced steam locomotives operating on the Santa Fe Railroad.
Wheels Museum is currently housed in what the Santa Fe Railyards once referred to as The Storehouse, a long and narrow structure built in 1914, in which was kept an enormous inventory of all manner of parts and supplies for the larger maintenance shops and the entire Santa Fe railroad system in general. Please call (505) 243-6269 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
