El Paso Museum of History Extends Digital Wall operating hours

The El Paso Museum of History (EPMH) has extended operating hours for DIGIE, the nation’s only Digital Wall, to include 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays.

“DIGIE is a valuable resource that the history museum makes available to the community.” said El Paso Museum of History Director Vladimir von Tsurikov. “We are excited to further serve our community by extending DIGIE’s operating hours beyond the museum’s operating hours. This allows for greater accessibility to visitors and community members interested in viewing El Paso’s digital community archive.”

DIGIE stands for Digital Information Gateway in El Paso. The digital wall sustains a vast collection of images and videos exploring El Paso’s past and present through a giant 3-D touch-sensitive TV screen, an online database and the mobile Mini DIGIE.

Museum staff encourages the community and surrounding regions to share their story by uploading files to digie’s website. The website is user friendly and easy to navigate. The content is curated by the community and available for browsing online.

Since opening on Valentine’s Day in 2015, DIGIE has captured 48,080,491 touches and currently holds a collection of more than 14,000 images and videos.

The wall was the first project completed as part of the 2012 Quality of Life Bonds and is one of only four in the world. The others are located in Copenhagen, Denmark; Cairo, Egypt; and Christ’s Church New Zealand.

The El Paso Museum of History, 510 North Santa Fe Street, is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
