Defining Moment

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

If you like history this is a great place to go. History at its finest they no longer teach about these things in the schools. Thanks to all those who have and are fighting for our freedom

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

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

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.

Excellent war museum with lots of vehicles and tanks. Great World War II artifacts. A nice way to spend the afternoon while in El Paso.
