I was really looking forward to this Museum and unfortunately was very disappointed. To start with the movie, you couldn't hear what they were saying because the music was to loud. Some of the info was interesting but I expected to see more balloons and...More

We visited this past fall and it was more than we ever expected! The events from the morning launches to the evening "glows" were so much for us to do and take in. We loved watching them inflate in the early morning and then launch....More

I'll give the museum a four, though it could get a three. It's really not bad, but not anything to get excited about, and I wouldn't go out of my way to see it. On the other hand, my 16 year old daughter really loved...More

Small but very informative about the history of ballooning. Many actual balloons included in the exhibits so could be good for kids as well. Also lots of weather information, about storms etc related to weather balloons. Definitely unique and a way to learn more history.

This was a gem of a museum! There were examples of earliest hot air balloons and more modern devices as well. This is not a huge museum, but definitely very interesting. I think it's the perfect size to take small children and have them entertained....More

If you can or can't come to the annual October Balloon Fiesta (first weekend in October) this is a great way to learn about the history of ballooning from the beginning to current. Informative and fun.
