Balloons! Albuquerque is noted for and defined by its balloons. Here is the primary place they take off and reside. During the balloon festival they fill the sky and it is wonderful. A defining feature of ABQ.

I visited the museum with friends, it was very informative and the team of volunteers very friendly. The gift shop has something for each family member age.

Everything you ever wanted to know about balloons..! Lots of information and exhibits to keep you interested. A fun 4D film - although I wish it was more about ballooning than flying. Nicely stocked shop.

Please give yourself lots of extra time if you arrive for the morning lift. The freeway is bumper to bumper. I had a disabled placard for parking but they could not accommodate me. We ended up sitting in the car to watch the early morning...More
