I have visited the Border Patrol Museum many times. They are always updating and displaying new items. Just the transporation items are worth seeing It is a pleasant way to spend a afternoon on a hot day in a cool place.

This museum is pretty great. So interesting to see all the vehicles they use, what is used to make their way here, and just the pure creativity of it all. A must see. Loved the K-9 section as well.

This is a very informative museum. Several vehicles, a helicopter that you can actually sit in, and some dioramas that demonstrate what border patrol agents have to do. Small section dedicated to the memory of K9 agents. Lots of photos and information.

Great Museum! You'll learn a thing or two...or three..or...admission is free. You could take some great photos to share your experience and tell others to brush up on their history about our Border Patrol friends.
