Nice Museum

Our good friend was stationed at For Bliss many years ago. The equipment and museum displays brought back good memories. It made him happy.

I got lost and drove around on the base, it's very impressive. They even have their own mall there. I didn't like inside the museum as much as I liked the outSide. It's free to come here, nice little gem, a must do when visiting El Paso, Texas.

I wanted to visit the museum on Saturday, by the time I arrived, it was late afternoon and they were already closed. But at least I got to enjoy viewing all the tanks and artillery displays in the parking lot. That was cool.

This is a really great museum. Has some great pieces of history in it. One of the best parts was the section over Omar Bradley. Really enjoyed the tanks outside and the WWI section.

loads of memories at this base. Enjoyed seeing the upgrades that the military has done, but yet still was able to see the old barracks ( a few of them are left) of where hubby lived while we were dating. If you are ever in the area, go see the museum of the original fort and enjoy the history.

We did stop here on our trip and took about 2 hours to really go through to look and read everything. They have some amazing equipment and real pieces that were brought back from different wars. I was pleased with this stop. I learned a lot and got to see things in person I have only seen on TV. Great... More

This is an excellent Military Museum. There are exhibits outside and inside. My defining moments in this museum is seeing an Iraqi tank that was captured and on display.

Check out the assortment of Army vehicles, tanks, air defense artillery, and helicopters. It's free and you can take all the photos you want. Do Not climb on any of the display equipment.

The museum's on post were disappointing to us! They have some great artifacts and history to share but it was very discombobulated, the desk personnel were less then helpful, there's no info on the post historical society at either one. We've been to many museums on the posts we've lived on and these were just not up to par. There... More
