Outstanding exhibits! I visit ABQ at least 3 times a year. This city never ceases to amaze me. People here for the most part are very friendly, a few of the security people need to work on their people skills.

We didn't get to visit Albuquerque during the Balloon Fiesta but this museum gave us an opportunity to learn more about the history of hot air ballooning. This is a small-ish museum that requires maybe about 60-90 minutes for a visit but there's lots to...More

The museum is fun, uncrowded (on a free Sunday morning in November) and interesting. We spent an hour and felt it was worthwhile. But...we had another destination further up the highway, so we didn't have to make a special trip. I'm guessing that this would...More

We know about the annual balloon fiesta that makes the national news every year. However, ballooning goes back hundreds of years and there's plenty of significant research that has been done using balloons. The museum is packed with exhibits that document the history of ballooning...More
