This major special exhibition chronicles the unprecedented attempt in 1897 to reach the North Pole by balloon.

When the bold flight of S.A. Andrée began on July 11, 1897, no one had yet reached the North Pole. There had been other attempts, all unsuccessful, but this expedition intended to fly there by balloon from Danes Island, an icy outpost at nearly the top of the world.

This dramatic and often misunderstood story is the subject of the Anderson Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum's groundbreaking special exhibition, "Arctic Air: The Bold Flight of S.A. Andrée."
