The Balloon Museum in Albuquerque is a unique Southwestern venue in New Mexico’s largest city. The often-colorful exhibits in the halls showcase everything from the wartime history of ballooning to “Canopy of Color,” a celebration of the 50 years of the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, which marked its golden birthday last year.

Meeting planners can reserve the entire museum and grounds for gatherings. With expansive views of the Rio Grande Valley and the Sandia Mountains, the museum can accommodate events of up to 200 meeting-goers. Groups can also expand their get-together outdoors to a large patio, balcony, and lawn. The museum offers customized catering and bar service.
