“Learn about the challenges of being a Border Patrol Agent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

This museum was founded not by the Federal Government, but by retired Border Patrol agents and their families who donated their time, money, and memorabilia to showcase the profession for which they were sincerely proud. The result is a small but growing museum that takes a visitor through time from the beginning of the agency. The staff also does a great job with student tours and the children were spellbound listening to the tales of those brave men who guarded our borders.

“Great Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Most people don’t think that there is a lot of information you can put in a museum about protecting the border. How wrong they are! This museum shows some of the challenges facing our Border Patrol Agents on both the Southern and the Northern borders of our country. The museum has a jeep and a snowmobile that you are able to sit on & a helicopter that allows you to sit in the cockpit. Many schools use the museum as a destination for field trips. The museum also has a memorial room dedicated to all the El Paso Border Patrol Agents that have lost their lives in the line of duty. We have taken many out of town visitors to this museum and the have all walked away with a greater respect of the jobs the Border Patrol Agents do for our country.

“Birder Mission”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

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.
