The National Border Patrol Museum and Memorial Library Foundation
is a private, not for profit, 501(c)(3), tax exempt corporation. We are funded by donations only.

One of our Nation's best kept secrets is the National Border Patrol Museum & Gift shop, located in El Paso, Texas. Here you can journey through the history of the U.S. Border Patrol from the beginning in the Old West, through Prohibition, World War II, into the high-tech Patrol of today. The museum exhibits uniforms, equipment, photographs, guns, vehicles, airplanes, boats and documents depicting historical and current date sector operations throughout the United States. The Museum is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 9am to 5pm. NO ADMISSION FEE, but we cheerfully accept donations. RV's and buses are welcome. The National Border Patrol Museum offers guided tours with advance notice Tuesdays through Fridays. We are located at 4315 Trans Mountain Rd., just west (mountainside) of highway 54 to Alamogordo. For more information, please call (915) 759 - 6060.
