This is a wonderful yearly event in ABQ. The balloons are unreal. You can walk among the balloon and watch them take off first hand. Buy the parking pass and it makes the entire trip easy and pleasant. You will love it.

This museum on the grounds of the Albuquerque International Balloon Festival is small but very interesting and I would suggest very strongly making a visit here. I normally think of "balloons" as a large gas-filled balloon with a wicker/woven basket hanging from it. So it...More

Remarkable in size and color. The annual Balloon Festival is the largest balloon event in the United states.

The museum was not too crowded the day we were there. It is a very engaging and informative exhibit of balloon history from the beginning to today. We really thought this was one of the primary attractions of the area. Keep it up!!!
