We had a few hours in El Paso before our flight left, so we looked to tripadvisor for something to do. The Magoffin Home was very highly reviewed, so we decided upon that. My husband and I were the only ones on the guided tour. It is a very well preserved home, and the stories of the family are interesting... More

We very much enjoyed our visit to the Magoffin House. We arrived around 1015AM it was to late to join the 10AM tour so we waited until the 11AM one to start. We were welcome to walk around the grounds and look at all of the flowers and other plants. One of the employees brought us both water and tea... More

The story of this historic home spans many generations and the character of the home, the pictures and artifacts are well maintained. The docent was very well spoken and entertaining in his presentation through the many rooms and the telling of the years of its familial occupation, with many pieces of family history quite interesting. The grounds are beautiful with... More

My family of 4 visited on July 5. I have a 20 year old soldier at Fort Bliss and an 8 year old. It's hard for us to find attractions to meet the interest level of both kids! I love historical homes that have been restored to their former glory and this did not disappoint. Our tour guide was knowledgeable... More

I've been going to El Paso for decades, and just stumbled upon this attraction. My sister and I went. It was very informative. It was the guide and us, and we spent well over an hour on the history of the house, the family, and El Paso in general. Very wrothwhile!

This museum was a great surprise! The grounds are grassy, impeccable, and gorgeous. The house itself was great. We went on a week day and had a private tour. It's not like most old, historic houses. We were allowed to walk around all of the rooms and the extremely knowledgeable guide had lots of pictures of the residents and what... More

The Magoffin Home is a lovely green spot on the outskirts of downtown, with much history to tell. There are many special events here, and the guided tours will give you an understanding of early El Paso and frontera history, especially the seamless cross-border nature of the society in the late 19th century.

Very well preserved adobe home in the middle of town. We arrived at opening on Sunday morning and was greeted by the curator of the museum. He was a very nice and knowledgeable young man who was extremely proud of his museum. Gave us a personal tour and explained who and what we were looking at. If you like history... More
