It is a smaller museum with well designed exhibits, some video presentations, and it shows a part of mexican history I didn't know before. I know a lot- this was new. Well worth visiiting and free!

Very interesting piece of history I was lacking. Museum is clean, modern and easy to navigate. Staff is friendly and helpful. Headset in all languages guides you room by room through the history of this boarder town at your own pace.

This is the historical customs house right in the heart of downtown CdJ. If you come from the Santa Fe bridge crossing, it is a (give or take) 10 minute walk on that street (Av. Benito Juarez), you arrive. The building is very characteristic, you...More

I don't know how I had missed this place but my first time visiting it was this year and my kids and I loved it.

Is small enough that you can easily be done in an hour but the most amazing part is that it shows the incredible history of the Mexican revolution in the border. So, what you see is what happen on the land you are standing.

During brief stay in Juarez, we spent a couple hours perusing the exhibits in this museum. Many displays have English descriptions. I believe there are English audio units that you can rent; otherwise there is no cost for admittance. I recommend that you take the...More

The entrance to the museum is on the backside of the old Customs House. There was no fee to enter. Not sure if that was just for Sundays. Donations were accepted at the end of the visit. There were many rooms, organized by subject, surrounding...More

Good museum in a historical building with lots of history on the Mexican Revolution, and some good history about Pancho Villa. They also have a room dedicated to the old cameras that were used during that era. After you visit the museum you can check...More
