Balloon Museum – Albuquerque, New Mexico

The motorhome is still parked at VFW Post #401 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Yesterday we took the Bronco to the Balloon Museum where a very knowledgeable docent told us that Albuquerque claims the title of Balloon Capital of the World. Every Fall Albuquerque holds a Balloon Festival and a few years back set a record with 1,000 balloons participating. However apparently they found that number to large to handle safety-wise and have since cut the number back to seven hundred.

Here are some photos that I took…

The Balloon Museum proved to be a very interesting and colorful place to visit. Visiting lots of different kinds of museums is another enjoyment of the full-time RVing lifestyle.

    I have been to the Balloonfiesta 3 times and crewed each time. Got free rides and lots of other perks. It’s a blast. I was there they year they had 900 balloons. Not enough sites since the city has expanded northward. Put it on your bucket list.
