What a beautiful venue for a wedding reception! As guests, we had access to the museum and gift shop. The catered reception was upstairs with 360 degree views of the city. There was an area for dancing, access to an outside patio, and more.

This tour was fascinating and informative! Loved the gift shop and bought wind spinners and lots of hot air balloon related gifts for others and myself. Would love to come back for the festival and also take a balloon ride! My grand daughter is going to have an hot air balloon theme birthday party. This was perfect to get some... More

Several of museums in Albuquerque offer free admission up to 1:00 pm on Sundays (and other days). The place was not overly busy when I arrived...no gate attendant...I found a self-guided tour brochure (very helpful) and started upstairs to get some overhead shots of the gondolas. Great second level deck that offers great views of the Sandia Mtns and across... More

We spent close to 2 hours in this museum and could have stayed longer. The history of the hot air balloon, and all the exhibits were so educational.

The Anderson-Abruzzo International Balloon museum is home to a museum with very informative displays and interactive areas for all ages. Families can learn about flight and during the baloon fiesta thousands of visitors head to the park to watch the balloons ascend and partcipate in the balloon glow! The Anderson-Abruzzo Museum and Park has a well-stocked gift store with reasonable... More

I always loved the Dawn Patrol. To see all the different size, color & shapes of balloons taking off at dawn is so awesome.

This venue does an excellent job of taking you back to when hot air ballooning began and how it developed over the years. They have recently added on a section detailing the annual ABQ Balloon Fiesta. There is hands-on stuff for the kids.

This is a fascinating place to learn about the history of Hot Air Balloons, the people who invented and improved upon them, etc. I would highly encourage guests to go here, prior to the Balloon Fiesta. It would really enrich the experience.
