  • It has a lot of balloon information on display in an interesting way. If you're interested in balloons and flying it's a must see. Cute gift shop too
  • Fantastic museum with amazing articles of history on exhibit. Also, their balloon pilot simulator is really fun! Great place for kids and kids-at-heart!
  • An OK place for people who like hot air balloons. It needs more interactive stuff. If your in the area and like hot air balloons it's worth a stop if it's free. Wouldn't go out of my way.
  • An inexpensive way to spend a couple of hours learning the history of, and other interesting facts about Ballooning. It is really worth a visit while in Albuquerque.
  • World class history and exhibits. Festival grounds across the street. Free admission until 2 on Sundays
