MIM ranked the #1 Attraction in Phoenix on TripAdvisor


Take your senses for a ride with a half-day excursion from Hot Air Expeditions and the Musical Instrument Museum! Your day begins at sunrise with the hot air ballooning experience of a lifetime, where you are treated to soaring over the breathtaking Sonoran Desert in the oldest form of aviation, a true feast for your eyes and adventurous spirit. Our full experience including a post-flight champagne toast, gourmet breakfast and balloonist’s ceremony ensues, and before you know it, you are off to the next portion of your tour.

Your Hot Air Expeditions driver transfers you from the desert to the Musical Instrument Museum, where the second part of your day begins. With vouchers for admission and lunch in tow, guests embark on a musical journey using wireless technology for a self-guided tour that is entertaining, interactive, and engaging. The MIM showcases over 6,500 instruments and objects from 200 countries and territories, and with the audio and video segments, you will hear, see, and feel the creative spirit of the musicians as they play their instruments. Within the museum, there are exhibits that pay tribute to musicians who have touched the lives of many, and feature an expansive collection of instruments from famous performers such as Maroon 5, Taylor Swift, Elvis Presley, and more in the Artist Gallery.
