Noon - 5 p.m. Free Admission
Come celebrate 400 years of history.
Music, dance, craft activities, face-painting and much, much more……bring the entire family!
The new El Paso Museum of History is located just off I-10 in downtown El Paso's Cultural District (on the corner of Santa Fe and Missouri). Enjoy exploring more than 400 years of regional history as you meander through visitor-friendly, bilingual exhibits designed for all ages.
The El Paso Museum of History is one of three City-operated museums overseen by the Museums & Cultural Affairs Department, including the El Paso Museum of Art and the El Paso Museum of Archaeology. The El Paso Museum of History was established in 1974 as the Cavalry Museum but quickly served a scope and purpose beyond its title and began to function as a local history museum. In 1980, the name of the museum was officially changed to the El Paso Museum of History.
Entrance to the museum is always free. For more information, call 915-351-3588 or visit the Museum's website at: www.elpasotexas.gov/history
Hours of Operation:
Tuesday - Saturday, 10am - 5pm
Sunday, noon - 5pm
