Keep things going the next day: examine the collection at New Mexico Steam Locomotive and Railroad Historical Society, get curious at Explora Science Center and Children's Museum of Albuquerque, and then wander the streets of Albuquerque Old Town.

To find maps and tourist information, refer to the Albuquerque trip app .
