"High-Flying Fun"

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.
