  • One of the most meager museums I have ever seen. Although it may be able to tell some details of history of El Paso, the Museum seems to be incomplete and appears immediately, without any appeal. Cute anyway digital and interactive screen that allows you to "visit" El Paso and surroundings as well as to see recent photos or old and about some historical facts of the area.

  • The History Museum is very cool in learning about El Paso. It has lots of local reference stations. Only down is that it hasn't changed much in the last 5 years so if you have been by once that's pretty much the only visit you need.
  • Educational museum that claims to present the culture and history of El Paso. It's wonderful that it celebrates the contributions of Hispanics, but it's very sad that it ignores the substantial impact of the other (generally marginalized) ethnic groups (such as Jews) who significantly contributed to the development of the city's vibrant and inclusive culture including the sponsorship of important civic and cultural (including Hispanic) institutions.
  • A very organized and unintimidating museum. Very helpful and informative staff.
