Tim Anderson 4-D Theater

A film-going adventure at the Balloon Museum you won't want to miss!

For fans of experiential film viewing, the Tim Anderson 4-D Theater will engage audiences in visual, aural, and physical sensations as they watch ballooning and other flight and science-related short films.

Entry to the theater is included with admission to the museum (except as otherwise promoted for a special event).

Now Playing

Currently, visitors may enjoy two excellent 2D videos, which are shown back-to-back:

  • The first, Remarkable Tales of Ballooning, is a four-minute film that uses the Balloon Museum's collection and exhibitions to tell the story of ballooning from its earliest days to the modern era.
  • This is followed by My Balloon Flight. Climb aboard Sandia Sunlite and experience what it is like to fly in a hot air balloon above the city of Albuquerque in this nine-minute film.
