  • You can finish the tour in about ten minutes. But it it entertaining, and informative about parts of history of El Paso. There's a TV room where occasionally they'll show a movie, there's a small adobe house that you can touch. Also lots of pottery and pictures, and a gift shop to remember the experience. Outside there's a trail with plants and there names. Pretty great to be when you get a chance. People were nice.
  • It is a small nice museum with beautiful pottery collection, weapons, clothing, jewelry and sculptures of the local tribes. Life-size dioramas show what life was like many centuries ago. There is no fee. Donations welcomed. The staff was helpful and knowledgeable. They also have a nice small gift shop. Nice place to visit with children, I think they'll love it. Worth to visit!
