El Paso Museum of Archeology, El Paso

I’m sure the The El Paso Museum of Archeology has some wonderful exhibits, and I was really excited when I read that each Saturday they offer a FREE Tour, Archery and Atl-Atl demonstrations.  However, we didn’t actually go inside the museum when we visited!  I know, I really regret it.

That’s because we stayed out at the Chihuahuan Desert Garden and Nature Trail behind the building.  Fifteen acres include numerous native plant life, an easy walking trail, native wildlife and an Indian garden and some exhibits.  We spent so much time walking, enjoying the beautiful blue sky above and yellow fields below that we missed the museum, which is a shame because not only does it seem to have some nice exhibits, it’s even free.

We went to see the poppies that grow wild all over El Paso in the spring, similar to bluebonnets in Central and East Texas.  We spotted the bright yellow flowers all around us while we were in El Paso, but no place was as plentiful as the around the trail at the Archeology Museum.
