The entrance fee was 2$ per person. Money well spent! The museum gives an excellent overview from the very first beginnings of balloon rides to the record flights over the Atlantic, Pacific and around the world. Even the latest record ascent and skydive decent (Felix Baumgartner) is not missing. You will learn how ballooning works in the first place. Then you'll understand the different types of balloons and their role in history. Some hands on interactive exhibits make it more interesting. Take your kids to the large kids area, to play and experiment. Then go and step into a real balloon basket and try your skills starting, flying and landing a balloon in a target area (all simulated of course, but very realistic as you pull ropes instead of moving a computer mouse). Also don't miss the video of the annual Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, a three day Balloonista (?) event in October. We'll go there next year and see the real thing!
