Local Field Trip to the Albuquerque International Sunport including the Old Terminal Building and Fine Art Collection
Tour Directed by
Doug Lutz, Sunport Volunteer Coordinator
A “Behind the Scenes” visit of the Albuquerque
International Sunport and the Old Terminal Building.
Description: An exciting opportunity to see the newly
renovated Sunport and to see and hear about the airport’s
art, history, and architecture. We will start with the exhibit
of the Old Terminal, see some of the art collection featuring
Wilson Hurley, Gary Niblett, Fritz Scholder, Allen Houser, and Pop Chalee
and others. Then, we’ll process through the TSA check and go behind the
scenes where under the terminal we will board special buses that will drive
us around the perimeter of the property, braking and stopping for planes
taking off. Our guide will explain the purpose of the different buildings we
pass. And, then on to the Old Terminal where we can go in and see how it
looks now. We finish up our tour at the Sunport Terminal.
