The El Paso Museum Pays Homage to Its History During This Exhibit

History enthusiasts, listen up! The El Paso Museum of History invites you to one of their most popular exhibits, “Changing Pass: People, Land & Memory” on Saturday, January 25th.

For many, Changing Pass is their first introduction to El Paso history. The exhibit serves as a learning tool for classrooms and organizations throughout the area as well as an attraction for those visiting from out of town. In its new location on the first-floor gallery, Changing Pass immediately greets visitors who walk through the door, inviting them to explore and reconsider what the borderlands are all about.

Covering more than 400 years of El Paso del Norte region history, Changing Pass begins with early Indigenous settlers and concludes with ASARCO in the 20th century. As visitors move through different exhibits, they are invited to explore how the El Paso del Norte area, along both sides of the Mexico-United States border, has been defined not only by the unique Chihuahuan desert but by the different groups, countries, and empires who sought to control it.

New artifacts, interactive displays, and text panels encourage guests to examine how El Paso’s political, economic, social, environmental, cultural, and religious past has evolved across centuries. So, stop by the El Paso Museum of History and discover it all for yourself!

The venue for the event, The El Paso Museum of History, exists for the educational benefit of the community and visitors. It promotes the understanding and significance of the rich, multicultural and multinational history of the border region known as, The Pass of the North. Through exhibits and programs, the museum involves diverse audiences in exploring varieties of human experience and encourages individuals to explore the past and reflect on their own place in history.

The museum is free and open to the public. For more information, please call (915) 212-0320.
