We visited the home on 12/13, it was the day they had the ribbon cutting for the new visitors center. The visitors center is located across the street and had just undergone a beautiful restoration - back to it's original charm. The Magoffin home was decorated for Christmas, it was beautiful! The period furnishings in the home are lovely. The... More

Home of one of El Paso's founding fathers. Beautifully restored and shows what life in the 1800's was like on the US/Mexico border.

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
