Museum of Archaeology
The El Paso Museum of Archaeology presents 14,000 years of prehistory in the El Paso area, the greater Southwest, and northern Mexico. You’ll see dioramas and exhibits of American Indian lives and their material culture, from the Paleoindian hunters of the Ice Age to their modern descendants. The exhibits are periodically changed to reflect the scope of the Museum's collections and the interests of the community. Special exhibits are located in the auditorium and the North Gallery. The auditorium also houses explore-able drawers of artifacts from across the US.
Walk nature trails on our 15 acres with more than 250 varieties of Chihuahuan Desert native plants, outdoor exhibits and an Indian Garden.
Free tours of the Museum and grounds may be scheduled in advance.
