This was a gem of a museum! There were examples of earliest hot air balloons and more modern devices as well. This is not a huge museum, but definitely very interesting. I think it's the perfect size to take small children and have them entertained....More

If you can or can't come to the annual October Balloon Fiesta (first weekend in October) this is a great way to learn about the history of ballooning from the beginning to current. Informative and fun.

Since we will never be able to ride in a balloon due to physical issues, we hoped the museum would be able to give us a visceral sense. It did not though we picked up some new knowledge. Took about an hour. Well worth the...More

Since we didn't know what to expect we came on Sunday morning for free admission. But we also had to get to the BioPark so by 11:00 we were gone. 2 hours was not enough time. I would have liked to have spent more time....More

An interesting thing to do while in ABQ. See some balloons up close and personal (although different ones than I expected.) The videos are fun and a "must do" while there. They run every 15 minutes and last for 12 minutes. Don't leave after the...More
