Balloon Museum Honored By Fédération Aéronautique Internationale

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.
