Balloon Museum Main

In 2015, the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI) awarded the rare title of FAI Recommended Museum to the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum.

The FAI Recommended Museum Program exists to recognize worthy and notable museum collections of an aeronautical nature which are used to further the education of the public, particularly children, in the history and practice of air sport, aeronautics and astronautics, and/or commercial or military aviation.

Permanent Exhibitions

The Anderson Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum is home to one of the most complete collections of artifacts, images, and stories from the world of ballooning.

Special Exhibitions

The Balloon Museum features new exhibits that explore the past, present, and future of ballooning, as well as subjects related to the science, engineering, and technology of lighter-than-air aviation and other innovative forms of flight.
