Went to see the Hal Marcus collection, local artist of international acclaim and the exhibit with beautifully displayed. The museum collection is outstanding and the facility is well arranged. The lady at the gift shop is very helpful and informative of any local questions. Very enjoyable. The walk around that area to include the plaza theater (which has tours) is... More

I visited the museum last weekend, when I was in town to visit friends. The museum was a weekly activity I participated in when I lived in El Paso years ago, and it did not disappoint this time. Wonderful temporary exhibits. Spectacular religious art. My favorite are the Tom Lea works. If you're unfamiliar with him and his body of... More

The museum has a nice variety of art ranging from classical, to modern. The modern was not my taste, but there was a wonderful exhibit of local artist Hal Marcus, who has studied Chagall, Picasso and other of the genre, and has produced some really remarkable pieces. He has his own studio not far from the museum (which is worth... More

I enjoyed going to the El Paso Museum of Art. They had really neat paintings from the European era as well as some interesting statues. The trip is good for a family setting or for those who enjoy the arts, nothing extravagant but non the less enjoyable.

Free entry so stop by for a visit. There is street parking in the area. Small collection but worthwhile to take a look. Beat the heat with AC.

Very impressive collection of art. Wide variety of styles in a very small place. Galleries are very well organized. A great way to escape the heat for a few hours and get some culture.

While not overly large, the El Paso Museum of Art has a very impressive and sophisticated collection. Having received a significant number of pieces from the Kress Collection, the Museum has grown its collection over the years and acquired many significant pieces. Additionally, the director keeps with the exhibits fresh with regular special exhibits featuring noted artist. It is often... More
