The mural is a lot of fun but inside there's not that much history (or much else) inside the building.

Chamizal is a hidden gem within a stones throw of the US/Mexico border in El Paso Texas. This is managed by the US National Park Service. Entrance is free and there’s a wonderful museum on the history of Chamizal and how this became such an...More

The history of Chamizal is very interesting and this is a good monument to check out. It's in a park so little kids can run around. We only spent about 15-20 minutes but are glad we went.

There's a wall of art at the main entrance, a small museum inside, and that's pretty much it. You probably won't need more than 30 minutes.

I regularly pedal by and through this incredibly historic site that is the resolution of a century-long border discussion between the USA & the EUM, and am always awestruck with the amicable settlement. I've been saddened, though, that official camping is permitted only South of...More
