Fun day for the kids, but it is over so quickly. Also has a sort of dirty feeling about it, relatively nice price but would get better review if it was cleaned up a bit.

My 15 month old granddaughter really enjoyed it. It has potential but needs some updating. Next to the convention center, hidden away a little bit.

I'm not sure what is going on in El Paso, but everything other than shopping is closed early or not open at all on Sundays and Mondays. Get a hotel with a pool so you have something to do on those days.

This is an OK children's museum. If you live in the area, you should consider an annual pass. The museum is not very large, and and very nondescript from the outside. There is a "western town" with a general store, bank, jail, school area, there...More
