Follow the chronicles of the unprecedented attempt in 1897 to reach the North Pole by balloon.

Join us for a guided tour of the Balloon Museum's newest exhibition,  Arctic Air: The Bold Flight of S.A. Andrée.
"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.

No reservations are required for this guided tour. It is available at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. for interested museum guests.

Regular museum admission rates apply. After the tour, enjoy a visit to our Tim Anderson 4D Theater!

An Official "Rise & Try Week" Activity!Admission for entry to the museum is $1-$4 per person.
