El Paso Centennial Museum

The Centennial Museum is an academic support and outreach unit of the University of Texas at El Paso focusing on the natural history and the indigenous, colonial, pre-urban, and folk cultures of the border regions of southwestern United States and Mexico. It promotes and shares knowledge and understanding of the natural and cultural diversity of the region and its peoples. The Museum meets its responsibilities through the presentation and curation of the permanent collections and by scholarly research. It also presents programs that promote the more general mission of the University of Texas at El Paso.
