“Buckle up and hold on tight and see and hear about his flights,” said Balloon Museum Manager Paul Garver. “He's had numerous flights and taken photos so he's going to take people through a flight on the shuttle.”

This particular event is now sold out, but families can watch video of the talk here: https://www.cabq.gov/culturalservices/balloonmuseum/events/an-escape-to-space-lecture-by-former-nasa-astronaut-sid-gutierrez

Typically, the Balloon Museum is known for its exhibits on gas ballooning and hot air ballooning, but in keeping with its new mission, there are new informative stations about planes, drones and beyond that families can explore any time throughout the year.
