base is an open base so anyone can get on the base, lots to do on base and to see. you need a person who is in military to do some things.

We were surprised by how interesting this indoor museum was. It had artifacts dating to the civil war and a few engagements even earlier. We had the opportunity to walk around and really look at things. Took a few pictures for the scrapbook. Wish they had a gift shop. My son is stationed there and he had never been inside... More

I'm researching for a book and Fort Bliss was one of the places I wanted to see. If you have proper identification you can visit the museum on Fort Bliss. Be sure and check the base website and be sure to go to the proper gate in order to get in. You can also check the day and times the... More

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.

The conference at the museum was just breaking up. The exhibits take you on a set of groupings that are mostly vehicles and from the earliest days including offices and uniforms from those eras. Want to see a Sherman tank from WW-II? How about an Abrams from Desert Storm? adopt an artifact put one here. German panzer? Russian armor? Jeeps,... More

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.
