Do visit as the collection is good

Very nice and free museum. Depending on what you like to see, you can spend from 1/2 hour and up. There is a lot of religious art. I especially liked the European art, especially the Canaletto painting, which is a special interest.

There is no gift shop of cofe services, but don't let that stop you from this very nice museum with a helpful staff.

Must do & it's free

Outstanding museum, must see to appreciate, set your own pace. OK to take pictures (no flash allowed) Don't forget the children's area even if you don't have children with you. Spotless restroom's. A bit pricey but unique gift shop.

Art it is.

Entrance is voluntary donation based. I used the map to make sure I saw everything & there was much to see. I read all of the accompanying cards some of the pieces are very old & interesting. I enjoyed the interactive wall placing the various felt pieces in designs. I purchased boxes of chocolate as gifts from the gift shop I wish I would have purchased more they were really delicious.

Small. Free. Well-done. Several interactive exhibits, a wonderful European collection, and modern art unique to the borderland.

I was surprised at the size and collection of art on display. Well worth a visit for individuals and families. Complimentary admission. The El Paso Museum of Art also offers a gift shop and paid membership for those who support the Arts and are interested in taking various classes. There is Pubic parking nearby for a minimal fee. The overall collections were interesting; both modern and historic.

Admission was free and the exhibit of modern art was very interesting. Collections are limited but this is a growing museum that I think will get better each year.

Free Art Museum!
Nov 2019 • Couples
This a smaller museum with a very good collection of art. We saw a Remington, Toulouse-Latrec, Whistler, Degas, Ansel Adams, and Gilbert Stuart portrait of George Washington in addition to interesting modern art and special exhibits. We were there on a Friday morning and were treated to a mini-recital of Classical music by a string quartet, which enhanced the experience. And did I mention it's free? Nice gift shop, too.
