  1. This was so fun! The volunteers were very patient and gracious with our curious 4 year old. I suggest you add some toy train related items to their gift shop. We had a great time. 3 from Texas

  2. Thank you to Randall, Henry, and Tom for providing so much information for us as we toured the museum. It was a wonderful experience.

  3. The Wheels Museum is a gem in the middle of the city’s Rail Yards. The collection has evolved from a majority of space dedicated to model train sets to a wide variety of wheeled vehicles from antique bikes to old fire engines and finally to a horse drawn milk wagon from Albuquerque’s past.
    As a model train nut I visited the museum and was hooked – volunteering for a time and displaying one of my model train sets there.

    For the past many years The Wheels Museum has invited the Film Tech students from CNM (Central NM Community College) to film in the museum and to use the facility as a base camp while they shot in the Rail Yards. These are very generous people – The Wheels Museum deserves support !!!
