This is a large musium with lots of information on balloons and the history of balloons. On the day of our visit there was a program for younger children which was in the seprate area and they kids were not running loose.

We enjoyed our time there, particularly the main exhibits and the gift shop. The docents are helpful. The price is better than reasonable. We left with knowledge and appreciation we hadn't had although the movie is meh.

This museum is great and has some really cool exhibits. They also have weekly story and music times that are free. The outside is green and spacious and a good place to let the kids run around.

Great place to learn all about balloon flying with nice interactive displays. There's something for everyone even younger children. The gift shop had some cool things to take back. I'd recommend it for adults and kids.

Of course I love this museum - my dad's balloon gondola is in it! But, there is a lot more to see here. You really get a sense of the long history of ballooning. I love the dioramas of old French ascensions - but seeing...More
