The British Balloon Museum and Library is the official museum of the British Balloon and Airship Club. It was formed in 1979 by a small group of balloonists, with the objective of preserving the many different items associated with and used in hot air and gas ballooning.

The museum is run entirely by volunteers – not all balloonists – and is funded by private and corporate donations and annual subscriptions of the “Friends“.

The museum has an updated Privacy Policy.
