We were welcomed by a docent/volunteer who introduced a small group of us to the "beginnings of ballooning"--why the basket is referred to as a gondola; why there's a champagne "toast" after a balloon flight lands, and other interesting history. There is a walking-guide pamphlet they give you so you can walk along and see by the number.....each display and... 更多
I enjoyed sharing our NM ballooning with a friend from out of state. I also learned a lot about the history of ballooning. A lot to see for anyone interested in ballooning and/or aviation.
My title pretty much says it all. It's a gorgeous building designed with the whole idea of lighter than air flight. The architects nailed it. There are lots of well designed and crafted exhibits. I was maybe halfway through them all when I had an epiphany. I like watching balloons. I'm not so into the history or culture of ballooning.... 更多
Go at your own pace tour of the history behind ballooning! Went with my husband and we enjoyed the interactive activities (most likley designed for kids) but since were kids at heart and knew nothing about ballooning all the activities and displays were right at our level! Worth the trip:)
This museum is full of history about balloons, and it has many on display. The cost is reasonable which makes it even more of a reason to go. It seems like it has some renovations going on, but that does not get in the way. Make sure to visit the gift shop on your way out.
We felt that the Anderson-Abruzzo Balloon Museum is a must see while visiting the area. If you are going to attend the Balloon Fiesta, the museum is “free” the day before the start of the Fiesta.

This was an enjoyable visit to the International Balloon Museum. We don't know much about Balloons but this is a great place to learn. The exhibits were very good and this was something different from the usual tourist attractions. Highly recommended.
Albuquerque is the balloon capital and this very colorful museum covers it all. See early depictions and samples and some of the modern ones that highlight the city. Learn all about the early days of ballooning and the amazing feats. Guided tour is by far the preference. Quite a bit more enjoyable than expected.
