  • It's a beautiful house with an impressive history. Our tour guide was friendly and allowed us to ask many questions! A wonderful piece of history. Another friendly/knowledgeable employee also shared some information with us. Great place for cooking classes. The film they showed us before viewing the house made the tour more interesting. I will visit again when in El Paso.
  • An amazing place to go by yourself or with your family. Very educational and entertaining. They have events sometimes for free or just a few bucks. I went there for a school project, but will definitely come back for the next event. Staff was really attentive and nice, which made the experience even better.
