Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum
This one of its kind museum features exhibits chronicling the history of ballooning, with a special focus on Albuquerque's contribution (as "Balloon Capital of the World") to this lighter-than-air art form. Famous history-making balloons are on display, as well as other intriguing exhibits like nineteenth-century Japanese ballooning outfits, German war-balloons used for bombing operations, and artifacts from the very beginning of hot-air ballooning in the late eighteenth century. The museum facility overlooks the field from which balloons take off during the world-renowned annual Balloon Fiesta. Call ahead or check the website to know more.

Admission was very inexpencive. Military, students, and New Mexico residents get a discount. The staff was very friendly, informative, and helpful. There are so many interesting things to learn about balloons. We could even get inside some of the exhibits. Taking pictures is welcomed. There is also an awesome view of the balloon fair grounds.
