Welcome Balloonists and Balloon Lovers!

Tinkertown Museum is thrilled to be open daily during Balloon Fiesta week — October 2nd through October 11.. Our hours are 10am to 4pm (last tickets sold for entry at 3pm).

This is always our busiest time of the year and our parking lot and capacity is limited. We encourage you to Beat the Rush and Beat the Wait by purchasing tickets online in advance. We may have room for walk-ins but our parking lot fills up quickly and it is not safe to park on the road. To avoid any inconvenience we strongly encourage you to purchase tickets in advance. Your ticket will include reserved parking, as available.

Masks are required for entrance to the museum.
