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.
