After finding out that the first Friday of the month the Balloon Museum is free, we decided to check it out. I found it to be fascinating, and it included a lot of additional history that I like most Americans were unaware of - Japanese Balloon Bombs. There were more than 9000 balloon bombs launched towards the United States during World War II. The Balloon Museum is well worth a visit and should take no more than a couple of hours to walk through. And if you can catch it the first Friday, the price is just right! Although, it's not very expensive if you can't make it then. See below for the cost.

Thank you Mona, Mark, and John for joining me and making the visit memorable.
