Great to learn all about the history of flight and weather. Beautiful views from all over. Great arrangement of balloons. Only drawback the movie room does not have handicap seating, other than that the movie was also great.

The balloon museum was excellent, a wonderful collection of real life artifacts. Albuquerque is the home of a lot of ballooning history and the people that made it happen. Sid Cutter, founder of the International Balloon Fiesta helped put NM on the map!
