About the Museum
Founded in 1959, the El Paso Museum of Art (EPMA) is a major cultural and educational resource for West Texas, New Mexico, and Mexico.The El Paso Museum of Art continues to be a proud year round participant of the NEA’s Blue Star Museums Program which grants free admission to ticketed exhibitions for active military personnel and their families with valid ID. Active duty military include Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, and active duty National Guard and active duty Reserve members.Blue Star Museums grew to more than 1,500 museums this past year, including over 700 museums that participated for the first time! This program enables us to thank our military families for their service and sacrifice to our country by inviting them to enjoy the best of American culture. Especially for families with limited time together, those on a limited budget, and ones that have to relocate frequently, Blue Star Museums offers an opportunity to enjoy one another and become more fully integrated into a community.
