After spending some time at the Balloon Fiesta, we came back to explore the Balloon Museum on a different day. As seniors, It only cost us $4 admission. I see that it is free on first Fridays, and on Sundays from 9 to 1:00 p.m....More

This was a fun event. The mass ascention was beautiful against the backdrop of blue skies and rugged mountains. Best to pay for special tents with breakfast and chairs and bathrooms.

I agree with a TA reviewer "nothing to get too excited about"...that's how I felt after visiting. Walking in the museum, I did get a "wow" feeling but it didn't go anywhere. Its beautifully curated, lots of interactive displays, but they just didn't engage me....More
