UTEP's Centennial Museum

A hidden gem of the region is University of Texas-El Paso's Centennial Museum, with impressive changing exhibitions on history, natural history and culture of the region, as well as permanent displays.  A lovely garden on the grounds presents native species of the Chihuahuan Desert.  We encourage you to visit this great museum! 

The Museum's website says this,

"The Museum’s permanent exhibits focus on the natural and cultural history of the Chihuahuan Desert region. The extensive stored collections of the Centennial are available for scholarly research. In the temporary galleries the Museum presents a wide range of exhibits on themes related to border life and culture, the Americas, and UTEP activities. "

We send our thanks to Randy Mallory and the Texas Historical Commission for use of this photo!
