Stopped in there today. The museum is small but has some very nice artwork and both my friend and I were impressed with the design and presentation of the art itself. The colored galleries were very well done! Worth a visit.

The museum is free and well worth a visit. The special exhibits have a charge but are free with a military ID. It took less than 2 hours to go through the whole museum. Great if you like southwest style art. I also leared that they have art classes for both children and adults on Saturdays which I will be... More

Not sure why every city seems to spend lots of cash on Art Galleries when the challenge is to actually obtain enough quality artifacts to justify the outlay. This is another build it and they will come facility and I will admit it has more than that of our hometown to recommend it . Overall not much to see regardless.

OK, this is a small museum, and the entrance is unimpressive. However, there are astounding pieces of art which were donated by the Kress Foundation on the second floor. This is a hidden gem. Also, it's free!

It's a small museum which can be toured in less than one hour. I wasn't expecting much so I wasn't disappointed. Some impressionist paintings, a Picasso, a Cezanne, and a pay per view Remington exhibit when we were there. They also have a Gilbert Stuart painting of George Washington which I always find interesting. It's worth a visit but not... More

The art gallery offered a major collection of the masters right here in El Paso. To think that one would not have to travel to Europe or to a big city in the US to experience these art is just fantastic!

Went to the el paso museum on a sunday after church. Was greeted by the curator. It was real interesting looking at the sculptures and pictures and talking about your thoughts on each one.

Went there in July 2014 It was free which was good, yet it was too small in my view We really liked some of the displays, they had posters of western films from the 60's which was really cool and also some Beatles memorabilia. They also had a few really cool sculptures. We stayed for about 10-15 minutes before we... More
