Everything was so original. It was set up so you could walk around very carefully and enjoy all there was to see. I especiallly liked the old cars and buggys.

This is a cute museum worth a quick visit. The museum space is split in two. To the left are vehicles, helicopters, etc… (kids can sit in them) and a memorial space. To the right is the official museum part with exhibits spanning the history of Border Patrol, service dogs, and various weapons and vehicles that people have used to get over the border. It’s a bit outdated and low tech but it give a great overview and I enjoyed seeing the different vehicles and methods that people use to get over the border. The museum gift shop had some great deals too. I’d recommend combining the Archeology Museum next door for something to do in an afternoon.

Not the biggest or fanciest museum you will ever visit but very informative. Gives you a better appreciation for the service border patrol agents perform.

Traces the roots of the current CBP to its inception in El Paso. Lots of neat artifacts, interactive displays and just plain cool stuff. Admission is free, although they ask for a donation at the end. Well worth the time to see. Travel safe enjoy the ride.
