Not well known (surprisingly even by the locals) but check it out - you won't be disappointed. Really nice, dirt cheap ($2) and well worth going out of your way to find it. If you bring the kids, they'll enjoy the hands on demo stations....More

This is a gem of a museum. It has 3 floors accessible by elevator, and is tucked a little off of Route 66 in Downtown Albuquerque. They have interactive displays for kids (and adults), and genuinely describes the evolution of tele-communications from tin cans and...More
