Reviewed 27 March 2012

Ballooning may not have had its beginning in Albuquerque, but we are passionate about it. This museum is great!

“Not too much display”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

One will think since it is a ballon museum, there should be a lot of displays of balloons. However, the museum actually is not that big, there are not that many balloon displays. It covers various angles on the history of ballon flying but we don't find it too interesting.

“Worth the trip!”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

Both children and adults alike will find this facility most interesting. There are many hands on exhibits, and the displays are first-rate. The docents are well versed and very helpful in explaining the various items found in the museum. You can easily spend a couple of hours here.

“I'd rather be at Explora.”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

It is okay but as locals it is not a repeat for us. Lots of concrete floors kind of gives me achy feet.
