Nice little museum. The displays are very well done. There's just not a lot of them. It only took us 10 minutes to see everything. There was an outdoor section to see as well, but it was locked up. The restrooms also required a digital code to open. Since the one employee was busy, we just went somewhere else. It is a nice place, just not a lot to see for the average tourist.

Free museum with interactive exhibits based on local history. Had an awesome time and the building is beautiful. You can even see them currently excavating an archeological dig site on premises!

Friendly staff and wonderful bilingual exhibit on Borderlands of Southern Colorado featuring Original Treaty of Guadalupe- Hidalgo. A re-created 1840s adobe trading post and plaza, and the archeological excavation site of the original 1842 El Pueblo trading post. Nice little garden near front entrance with small fountains. Paddle boats that kids and mom and dad will enjoy at nearby Riverwalk pond. Enjoy!

I recently saw an exhibit that feature actual pages from the Guadalupe Hidalgo treaty and it blew my mind. They also had Zebulon Pike's sword. Great place to learn about the region's history and people. Close to the Riverwalk and downtown.
