Group Tours

All community and school groups are welcome to visit the El Paso Museum of History to experience the history and culture of our region known as the Pass of the North. The museum tours offer age-appropriate, in-depth overviews of the museum’s exhibits and bring the past alive for students as they experience history through object-based learning.

Tours are available to groups:

  • 10 to 60 people 
  • Guided tours are generally an hour and are available to groups who plan to stay longer than 30 minutes.
  • Tours may cover a wide variety of topics, including history, science, and technology
