El Paso Museum of Archaeology to Close for Renovations This Week

Starting September 9, the Museums and Cultural Affairs Department will close the El Paso Museum of Archaeology for renovations.

“This project will improve our restrooms and parking lot to ensure ADA compliance,” said Museums and Cultural Affairs Department Director Tracey Jerome. “We will also install additional emergency exits in the galleries and the collection storage space will be expanded. These upgrades to the facility will support our mission of serving all sectors of the public with enhanced visitor amenities.”

The museum will undergo capital improvements that include expanding the hallway, remodeling of staff breakroom, parking lot improvements and other enhancements.

While renovations are underway, visitors may still park in front of the museum to use the walking and hiking trails.

Improvements are being funded with Quality of Life bonds approved by voters in 2012. The El Paso Museum of Archaeology is expected to re-open in mid-November.

For more information, visit call the Museums and Cultural Affairs Department at (915) 212-0110 or visit the archaeology museum website or Facebook page
