Visiting Longview

Great Texas Balloon Race Historical Exhibit at the Gregg County Historical Museum

Gregg County Historical Museum has opened a new and improved GTBR historical exhibit that provides so much of the history of our world class Balloon Races.  You will learn how our event came to be and what we are all about.  There are multiple items on display that have their own stories to tell, such as trophies, medals, shirts and tons of memorabilia from Dr. Bussey's own personal collection.  Learning and understanding the history of the Great Texas Balloon Race will make our event just as meaningful to you, as it is to all of the wonderful people who are committed to making this event successful year after year.
