The museum is still open with an assortment of military equipment and tanks. Several large ones are also displayed in the parking lot.... More

Outside is a great display of armor, a German V-2 rocket, artillery pieces and a couple helicopters. Inside the giant museum is lots more armor and artifacts from the indian wars to current conflicts. You... More

While in El Paso we ventured just past the visitor checkpoint to see the memorial. You will need to provide identification and personal information , including your social security number to obtain a pass to enter Fort Bliss.

The 3rd Calvary Museum contains artifacts that relate to the 3rd Calvary's history. These artifacts date back to the mid-19th century. The artifacts at the Fort Bliss Museum are relevant to the...

The static display out front is interesting, though would benefit from refershing the signage and explanations for those not familiar with the pieces.

The fort bliss museum honors artillery men from all of our wars. The exhibits are imposing, and very educational. Reading the placards just added to my knowledge base. Also interesting was the fact, that the Sgt Majors academy is located on the premises. Great day trip, don't miss it!

The bad - completely disorganized...you'll jump from Indian wars to Iraq/Afghanistan to WW 2 then back to Civil war to the gulf war back to WW 2. There displays with Gulf war pictures and in front was a German WW 2 anti tank gun? Perhaps we visited a t a bad... More
