Balloon Museum Launches Several New Programs in the New Year


We’re a ballooning town, and even in the dead of winter, we can get a wonderful dose of everything ballooning at the Anderson Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum.  Here are a couple of upcoming events we think are well worth considering:

Curator’s Coffee and Gallery Tours

This Saturday, January 22, plan on hanging out with Marilee Schmit Nason, Ph.D., Curator of Collections at the Balloon Museum, as she offers an insider’s view with museum patrons on the challenges and rewards of putting together a new museum exhibit.  Find out all about cluster balloons over a cup of coffee in this next installment of the museum’s Curator’s Coffee and Gallery Tours. ($4-$1 with kids 3 and under free.  See website for full details.)

If you’ve never been in the Balloon Museum at night, suffice to say it’s absolutely magical.  The Salon Series’ first session will be held on March 30, where you can attend an after-hours mix and mingle event followed by the presentation Gliding in Space by astronaut Mike Mullane. Food and cash bar provided by Il Vicino; music by Aaron Lewis. ($4-$1 with kids 3 and under free.  See website for full details.)
