New Museums!

It seemed all of Alpine turned out on Saturday for the grand reopening of the Museum of the Big Bend. The much anticipated new permanent exhibit is a terrific introduction to the region for visitors heading to Big Bend National Park or the Davis Mountains.

Earlier this summer, there was an equally anticipated opening of the new El Paso Museum of History. It tells the story of the El Paso area, and its relationship to Mexico and New Mexico. If you're headed to the Sun City, head downtown for a visit to the museum!
