Wonderful and fascinating overview of the history of ballooning. A museum well worth the time to go thru and see it all. Conveniently located right next to the area where balloons are launched for the annual festival.
Awesome history of hot air ballooning. Wonderful photos, hands-on exhibits. Great for kids of all ages. A MUST SEE in Albuquerque. Been there 20+ times over the years.

If you into ballooning and hang gliding you will love this place. Other wise it is not work the trip. You can get through the museum in about 30 minutes if you take you time.

I always look forward to the lift off and coloration of the those huge hot air balloons. It's amazing to watch each pilot navigate the winds and airways as they maneuver those colorful vessels along the atmosphere. Excellent...!
We learned so much go through the exhibits that we never knew about the Balloons. They also have an excellent area for children to explore and do and learn. A very fun place to visit.
