The dumpsters provided by the City within the residential areas will terminate this Friday - July 23, 2021
Dumpsters will continue to be available at the old Recycling Center located Main Street and Impala Drive for flood recovery disposal.
If you have been affected by the flood please contact your American Red Cross.
They offer support with emergency needs and recovery planning to get you and your family back on your feet. Contact American Red Cross at 1-800-842-7349
From Albuquerque, head south on I-25 and exit 195. Turn left into Belen. Follow Main St south to Becker Ave. Turn left on Becker and drive east to the end. Turn left on First St. and the museum is on the right.
Many of our guests visit Belen via the Railrunner. Check their schedule at nmrailrunner.com. The walk from the Railrunnner is roughly six blocks and requires crossing a pedestrian bridge with a steep slope. For those who need assistance, there is limited bus service available when scheduled in advance. See http://riometro.org/rio-metro-schedules/bus-schedule/bus-valencia-county for more details.
From the Railrunner station, walk south to the stairs leading over the pedestrian bridge. Cross the bridge over the railroad tracks and then again cross the bridge over Reinken Ave. Come down the stairs and the museum is one block south on the left.
Yes, we accept donations of railroad, Belen, and Harvey house items. Please ask for a receipt when donating items. While we are unable to display every item in our collection, many displays are rotated throughout the year. If you are unsure whether we can use an item you wish to donate, please call or bring it by the museum.
We do! Our gift shop is stocked with plenty of railroad souvenirs, t-shirts, caps, and other items. We also have a bookstore with many books from local and national authors. We are proud to be one of the biggest book retailers in Valencia County.
