Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We had a fantastic visit and learned so much! Our family had a wonderful time. The sweet lady at check-in was super nice and very helpful. We appreciated being able to use the wheel chair (no fee), it helped make our visit more enjoyable. The museum was the perfect size, it wasn't too small or too large.

    I love murals, and this was definitely a scavenger hunt! The murals are spread all over downtown, and it's up to you to find them all. If you're lucky, the visitor center will give you a printout with the location of each mural. If not, you can always find this information online. We didn't find all the murals, unfortunately, but we sure had fun trying!

    A very well down fairly small (3 story building) museum, entirely volunteer staffed. Great information about the yes, Euro-history of Tucumcari and eastern New Mexico. Quite a lot to see here

    This museum is based in the old depot (station) alongside the current freight only railroad lines. Popped in and spoke to a very friendly informative volunteer who gave me a brief history of the railroad in the town. Had a browse around the museum as well.

    It is a small museum, but it houses the largest photo collection of Route 66. It was awesome seeing all the pictures from the mother road along with all the beautiful classic cars. The guy who took our money was really friendly and even gave us a printed map of where to look for the downtown murals. He also suggested Blue Hole in Santa Rosa, which turned out to be an amazing stop! It's $5 admission, and parking is free. Be sure to stop by and check it out.

    Fun little town with lots of old sights. Wish there were a few more shops with souvenirs, but it is a nice slice of history.

    Stopped by to see Flora May on our annual “Livin My Life Like It’s GOLDEN” road trip. Sam (my canine buddy) wasn’t there this time but the visit was wonderful all the same. Great Route 66 and other nostalgic merchandise! Great prices! Great conversation! If you go to Tucumcari, this is a must stop shop!!!

    Appreciate your testimony and the charm Flora May. To survive is the THRIVE!! God bless you!!

    My husband and I were traveling through Tucumcari and decided to have a picnic at Northside park. It was a quiet park. They had lots of playground equipment but older than what I have seen in most playground but still in good condition. There was one small pavilion, 3 picnic tables, lots of trees for shade but no restrooms. The park is one block by one block in size and well mowed. The chain link fence along the main road was 6 foot tall and the other 3 sides were 4 foot tall. The park has a basketball court as well.

    I needed a couple of local trinkets. Welcoming help. Found exactly what I wanted with a variety of options (hat pins). Good prices. Cute dogs.

    It's not fancy, it's only 9 holes, but it's super cheap with a cart and a very nice little course. With all the trees and surroundings, you'll be suprised at how nice it is out there, and they actually have a really good golf pro too...

    This is a really cool place. It's a combination of a souvenir shop, BBQ restaurant, supply shop and museum. Owned by the nicest people, it was really fun to stop and check it out. We looked around, took some pics, bought a couple of things, and picked up some delicious brisket for the road. Excellent food...super BBQ sauce! Definitely a must see if you're checking out the town. Lot's of cool old tractors and signs to see outside too.

    The theater is very cute. It’s obviously still under renovation, the ceiling needs repair. The prices are wonderful, we paid $11.00 for 2 people! Soda & candy was $5.00!!

    Chris Tapia at ArteFormz Custom Artwork has been an asset to us in creating logos for our business here in Tucumcari. He has suggested items to bring into our business that have been successful.
    He is always a phone call away and responds quickly. Definitely an asset here in Tucumcari.
