Lewis Antique Auto and Toy Museum

Lewis-Car-MuseumLocated along old Route 66, the Lewis Antique Auto and Toy Museum shows off Archie Lewis’ collection of cars, toys, trains – even old stoves that he has amassed over sixty years of collecting. He moved out to Moriarty from the East Mountains outside of Albuquerque a dozen years ago, so he would have the space to spread out. Inside his warehouse, there are about 30 restored antique cars and a vast array of toy cars, Lionel trains, and other toys. In the yard surrounding the warehouse, there are about 600 more, give or take, unrestored cars. You’ll see lots of Model A and Model T Fords and other old cars and trucks of every make and model. The museum is open most of the time and Archie Lewis is usually there to welcome visitors.
