History of Armor Vehicles

the Museum has a history of armored vehicles from WW1 to Present day. A good way to get out of the heat of the desert and get some history

It's sure a lot better place to take basic than many bases. In 1968, the trainees were thick on the ground.

History was always a good subject. Everything has history. There are tanks small range missiles,,different guns and cannons that were used from the early 1800's to present day. Great for school field trips or folks new to the area. It tells you of past history and how technology has advanced..

Traveled to El Paso with my immediate family to witness my nephew's high school graduation and my brother in laws redeployment parties. Had the honor and privilege of hanging out with them on base at Ft. Bliss and catching a movie at the Freedom Center's grand theater. Movie theater is average, but the base and the commons area is outstanding!

I loved seeing all of the old weapons and talking with the soldiers that were assigned there. I was disappointed that a Medal of Honor recipient was not honored there. CSM Robert M. Patterson spent a large amount of his stateside time at Fort Bliss. This oversight was pointed out to the staff.

Nice museum with old, but good exhibits. The vehicle and weapon artifacts are the highlight. Guides were helpful. The area can double as a presentation area. The gift store appeared to be closed or relocated

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
