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.

Had trouble finding it at first. There are several Tanks outside on display. Inside there are more military vehicles, as well as displays on military history. Nice place to walk around and learn.

There are lots of jeeps, tanks, and humvees to see, as well as many historic artifacts and pictures. This museum is free and well worth the trip.

The US Army Air Defense Artillery and Fort Bliss Museum has grown significantly since the 1st Armored Division moved to Fort Bliss. This brought money and artifacts to the museum. It houses one of the greatest collections of military vehicles that I have had the pleasure of seeing. The exhibits are very well put together. The admission is free, so... More

Very informative. Outside the building it is very easy to step back in time and imagine the different ages of this fort. Nice shopping mall and theater with a very very large chess set on the plaza.fun experience in a serious setting.

Good assortment of military equipment and tanks. Several large ones are also displayed in the parking lot. They were closed the Monday following the 4th of July weekend for a 4 day holiday. We were able to explore the tanks in the parking lot even though they were closed. The gift shop was closed, possibly permanently. They operate on donations.... More
