This was an enjoyable visit to the International Balloon Museum. We don't know much about Balloons but this is a great place to learn. The exhibits were very good and this was something different from the usual tourist attractions. Highly recommended.

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.
