“Only one in the US! Lots of cool things to see and touch!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

Took my kids here and it was pretty neat! Lots of different vehicles- helicopter, snowmobile, boat, cars etc most the kids can climb into and check out first hand. Very informational guide told us all about the history of BP and most importantly this is the ONLY boarder patrol museum in the United States! Admission was free but donations keep them alive!

“Better than expected”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

The museum is situated on the outskirts of El Paso in some mountains. I knew it was a small out of the way museum but wanted to stop for personal reasons. The museum was better than expected with some photos and displays. They even had a jeep and helicopter you could climb on and around if you wanted. It has a small gift shop with some neat things. It is obviously privately funded but nice none the less.

Reviewed 1 March 2014

This is worth every moment of your time to honor and learn about the men and women protect us every day without is ever knowing. The young lady who tends to the museum is so proud of her husband who served us all for many years. Thank you!

“Very Interesting”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

I really enjoyed my visit to the Museum. Brenda at the front desk was very friendly and lovely to talk to ( Thanks Brenda). This is a small museum but packed full of interesting subject matter. Lots of exhibits, a video to watch, I probably spent about hour and half wandering about... really worth a visit.

“Great History”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

They change the artifacts from time to time and it proves to be interesting the extremes that an individual will go to, to illegally enter the UNITED STATES of AMERICA.
