Even with a name of an invader, this is a must-see park. First start with the short movie presentation to get an historical context. Then the surprisingly large exhibition area goes in depth to showcase not only the invasion itself but also the repercussions. You will learn that this invasion had enormous consequences for the United States because the methods used to hunt down and punish the Villistas prepared the U.S. military for the upcoming battles of World War I. The museum has a replica airplane and automobiles with bullet holes from Pancho himself so even the younger visitors or those not into history can have some appreciation of the event.
The museum also goes beyond the historical aspect with information on the desert plants and wildlife. You can hike to the top of the hill to get a view of the battleground and the town. There is also a campground that seemed to be empty because it was almost summer (i.e. HOT). It probably is used a lot more in the winter.
Not a bad way to spend a few bucks and a few hours.
