Exhibit: The Weather Lab


Inside The Weather Lab, museum visitors will encounter the sun, wind, clouds, precipitation and storms. Along the way, they will learn about the inextricable relationship between weather and humanity, and efforts through technology to better understand and forecast weather conditions.
The immersive and interactive exhibition includes weather pods, artifacts, interactive touchscreens, videos, images, and text panels presented within a one-of-a-kind space, created solely for the Balloon Museum by the University of New Mexico's School of Architecture and Planning.
The Weather Lab also highlights two weather conditions that are important to Albuquerque, but for very different reasons: The famous "Albuquerque Box" and fire weather.
