This museum helped us enjoy the balloon festival even more than we would have otherwise. It's reasonably priced and a very enjoyable place.

So amazing. Just a perfect day with blue skies, friendly people, so many beautiful balloons going up at one time.

So much more to see than we expected. It covered the total history of ballooning and how the weather affects them. Very interesting.
