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

In its entirety it is an average museum. However, it is on the fast track of improvement. Also, there is a wonderful section on the Red Baron "kill" theories - very interesting! Super section on the past, present and growing participation of women in the Armed Forces.

This museum is very interesting for those of us interested in military history as well as the local Fort Bliss angle. I was at this Fort years ago when I was in the Army so I appreciated that aspect of the Museum. It's a good size museum but not so large one gets bored with too many displays of related... More

Don't forget to visit the replica of the old Fort Bliss, it is located at the same site, just follow the sign to Welcome Center. The museum itself is mostly focused on WWII but with some attention to other conflicts. The display in the back from the later part of WWII with a backdrop of houses, and old bridge etc... More

Good place to pass some time and learn some military history. It's a big open space with lots of replicas.

A slice of American Military History, a must see. Visit historic Fort Bliss and experience how US Soldiers live now and how they lived then, 100years ago on the US-MEX border.

In this large, open building you will find life-sized displays of military weapons and vehicles. In addition, the museum tells the history of both Fort Bliss, and the 1st Armored Division. It is a great place for all from the history buff, to the family with kids, to the casual tourist.

I have been to much better military museums. It was free and passed the time. There were a few interesting artifacts. I guess for El Paso it wasn't bad since it isn't a huge tourist destination.
