Former ADA officer the post has changed tremendously and lost some of the charm . Not much ADA on the post but the Hq of 32nd ADACOM.

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

Lots of information and great for military history buffs. Easy parking-signage while off-base could be better but on base really clear. Old Ironsides pictures and the General Patton pictures are really cool. I thought Ft. Knox had a good one but this one ranks right up there!

This is now the 1st Armored Division - Old Ironsides Museum, since they are moving them in and air defense out. Disappointed because air defense equipment is the entire reason we went.

What a wonderful place to connect the dots of history! This museum has many awesome displays to highlight the powerful service our military has contributed to this nation in the areas of Air Defense Artillery and more. I spent about two hours here, but wish I had time to spend much more. On my next trip to El Paso, I... More

Great place to bring the kids if you're nearby and need something to do! Getting to stand face-to-face with actual attack choppers and tanks is a one-of-kind experience for many of us civilians!

I visited while stationed to Fort Bliss. If you are into military vehicles then this is a must-see. My mom and siblings flew down to El Paso to visit while I had some days on leave so naturally I took them to an Army themed museum. They really liked it, I think my mom mostly enjoyed me explaining some different... More

The U. S. Army Air Defense Artillery and Fort Bliss Museum is an excellent historical discovery about air defense artillery. The museum is beautifully appointed, air conditioned, and has clean restrooms. The museum is currently in the old Fort Bliss PX. There are many displays with artifacts, as well as displays in the parking lot with larger equipment, to include... More

Free entrance once you are on post-Ft Bliss- museum is easy to find but is a bit lacking in exterior curb appeal. It has several good outdoor displays, including several historical American tanks and vehicles, a German V-2 rocket, a HAWK Missle system, a T-34/76, and a T-72. Inside is a small auditorium, past that is the museum proper. It... More
