Who we are...

We are a 501(c)3 Non-profit Charitable Educational Organization dedicated to the concept of exploring the wonders of ballooning through hands-on learning for children of all ages.

What we do...

Each year, around the anniversary of the Montgolfier brother's first hot air balloon flight, the Balloon Explorium invites students from 5th grade classes in Albuquerque and Rio Rancho Public Schools to participate in "Paper Takes Flight". The event which started in 1999, now brings over 500 5th grade students to the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum to launch about 125 6' high tissue paper balloons the students have made in their classrooms the month before.
