The day we went the museum was closed but we were able to wander through the outdoor exhibit. The grandkids loved looking at the different tanks, missiles and helicopters.

It is entirely free (donation requested but not required). It has an outdoor area of tanks and helicopters, etc. That are pretty cool to look at. Inside they have history from Indian days to present. This won't take you long to see, but worth fitting it in if you are in the area.

Had trouble finding it at first. There are several Tanks outside on display. Inside there are more military vehicles, as well as displays on military history. Nice place to walk around and learn.

There are lots of jeeps, tanks, and humvees to see, as well as many historic artifacts and pictures. This museum is free and well worth the trip.

The US Army Air Defense Artillery and Fort Bliss Museum has grown significantly since the 1st Armored Division moved to Fort Bliss. This brought money and artifacts to the museum. It houses one of the greatest collections of military vehicles that I have had the pleasure of seeing. The exhibits are very well put together. The admission is free, so... More
