Balloon Museum set to temporarily close for nearly two months

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Beginning March 20, the Balloon Museum is closing for nearly two months for roof construction and repairs.

The museum closure will go through May 15. During that time, the museum will block off all of the front entrances.

The museum will then reopen with two brand-new exhibitions for guests.

The cost of the roofing project is $1.5 million. Crews will replace all of the building’s roof covering.

Virtual tours are available during the closure.
