Albuquerque Is Home To One Of The Coolest Breaking Bad Stores & Museums
Alright so if you are a fan of the TV show Breaking Bad then you may already know what I’m about to share, but if you’re a new fan of the show then you may not know that Albuquerque has one of the coolest Breaking Bad stores AND a FREE museum!
My son recently discovered the show Breaking Bad (Mom of the year award goes to me) and he loved it so much that he googled places to buy Breaking Bad clothes and other items.
To his surprise there was a store only 4 hours away from us in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I wasn’t that shocked to read that there was a store there because that’s where the tv show was filmed.
We decided to take a mini road trip to Albuquerque to check out the store and let me be the first to say that even if you’re not a Breaking Bad fan this store is definitely something you should visit if you’re around the area because not only is it a store, there’s also a pretty awesome and FREE interactive museum inside!
The store is located in Old Town, one of my sons favorite places to shop at whenever we’re in Albuquerque, right on the corner of S. Plaza Street and Rio Grande St.
Right when you walk in you’re greeted by some of the friendliest staff I’ve come into contact with!
The store section has so many collectible items and other fun Breaking Bad souvenirs like t-shirts, mugs, posters. There’s even a section for dogs and little babies!
Once you’re done doing your shopping you can treat yourself to a FREE Breaking Bad museum that is open to the public.
The museum starts with you walking into a replica of Saul Goodman’s lawyer office with a cut out of Saul himself behind the desk.
You’re allowed to snap as many photos and videos as you want in the museum which makes it the perfect spot to grab some social media content!
The rest of the museum features other life size cutouts of the characters including “The Cousins” standing behind a wheel chair with a dinging bell on it.
Then you get to what I thought was the best part of the museum. Los Pollos Hermanos.
Now this section is even better for photos and videos because it has a replica menu and counter from Pollo Loco so you can get behind the counter and have fun with it. There’s also a life size cutout of the owner, Gus.
I’ve been to the store twice already and even though I already know what to expect, I still get excited to head out there because you really feel like you’re a part of the show the second you step into the museum.
