About the Building

 

The Museum building upper structure was designed to suggest two inverted balloons. The entrance arches made in graduated sizes are intended to give the feeling of entering an inflated balloon before it is heated enough to stand upright. The structure is trimmed in blue, yellow and white ceramic tiles that represent the serenity and gracefulness associated with balloon flight.
