Exhibition: Arctic Air-The Bold Flight of S.A. Andree at the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum

"Arctic Air" explores the history and technology of the expedition, and it delves into who these explorers were, their experiences in the Arctic, the people in their lives at home, and the motivation for such a journey.

Journals of the crew, as well as photographs taken on the journey, tell a detailed story, one that the Balloon Museum presents in an immersive display.

The façade of the exhibition is a replica of the pre-fabricated balloon house, or hangar, that Andrée transported from Sweden and assembled on Danes Island in 1896.

An interior portion of the replica balloon house forms one of the exhibition's galleries. Another is designed to look like a late-19th Century parlor, while the third simulates an Arctic camp used by Andrée and the two men who joined him on the flight, Nils Strindberg and Knut Fraenkel.


Event Cost: $1. - $4.
