Border Patrol Museum

On 29 December 2010 we spent a little time at the Border Patrol Museum in El Paso. It was a lot smaller than we originally expected it to be. However, we ended up enjoying ourselves and the time we were able to spend together. The kids enjoyed it, especially seeing the vehicles and being able to climb inside or on a few of them.

We were able to see the uniforms that they Border Patrol has used over time, as well as weapons, certain equipment, vehicles, a helicopter, a boat, models of the job and what it entails, all types of photos from over the years, the first women of BP, and of course a section devoted to the Canine’s that have taken part in Border Patrol. The stories on the dogs that have been used, as well as the vehicles, seemed to be the big hit of the day!
