A large collection of balls under the ceiling is also full of balls representing a new big world, impossible shapes made of inflatables and colours… The Balloon Museum is an experience for the senses. It's not just about meditation. This exhibition invites its visitors to interact with everything they see.

This is the first exhibition dedicated to inflatable art, which gives a vision of the result of encountering an element such as air through a path with inflatable sculptures, interactive works and large-scale installations. They explained from the exhibition that “the popular air reflects new artistic expressions and techniques associated with travel and the promotion of unpublished contemporary works.”

They explained from the exhibition, “The Balloon Museum’s installation responds to the sensory immersion in which the viewer interacts between unexpected shapes and moving works that he can touch and feel, and through which he can dialogue and be affected.” A way of orienting culture as contemplative pleasure that calls for physical, digital and cultural socialization. “People are constantly stimulated to see, feel and live thanks to inflatable art,” he says.
