The Changing Pass @ El Paso Museum of History
Jul 4 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Changing of the Pass

A traditional, chronological journey through the major events and influences that have shaped El Paso into the city we experience today. The cannon is from the Mexican Revolution period, around 1910. The ox-cart was used to haul goods along the Camino Real (King’s Road) reaching from Santa Fe, NM to Mexico City

 

Neighborhoods and Shared Memories

The Neighborhoods and Shared Memories exhibit is composed of cherished photographs, special mementos and keepsakes from past and present residents of Chihuahuita and El Segundo Barrio. Every two years, the exhibit will feature a new set of neighborhoods. The Neighborhoods exhibit seeks to preserve, interpret, and increase an appreciation for neighborhood-based history.

 

Up in Smoke: The Early Days of the El Paso Fire Department

As El Paso changed from a small adobe village to a railroad center built of brick and lumber, the possibility of disastrous fires dramatically increased. Not until El Paso organized a volunteer fire department, with City funded equipment, could the community seriously consider building up and out. The exhibit includes the El Paso Fire Department’s 1901 Steamer, Engine No. 2, and other early fire memorabilia.

 

Namaste El Paso: Celebrating Indian Culture Open Now until June 21, 2015

India, the largest secular democracy in the world is a beautiful kaleidoscope of different languages, religions, landscapes and people. India goes from the snowcapped peaks of the Himalayas in the North to the beautiful beaches of the peninsular south. There are 2.81 million Indians in America and a small portion of that right here in the Borderland working in hospitals as doctors and nurses, as restaurateurs, motel owners and as professors and students. Come and see this colorful and interesting exhibit!

Science of Bowling @ El Paso Exploreum
Jul 4 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

As El Paso welcomes thousands of bowlers to the USBC bowling championships, the El Paso Exploreum Children’s Museum is opening its “Science of Bowling” exhibit at 300 W. San Antonio Ave. to explain exactly what it takes for one ball to knock down ten pins!
Did you know a bowling ball can float? Did you know that understanding physics can help you deliver a perfect hook? Did you realize the amount of oil on a lane requires you to change your technique? The Science of Bowling answers those questions and more.
On Wednesday, March 4, Science of Bowling opens at the El Paso Exploreum, directly across the street from the El Paso Convention Center, home of the United States Bowling Congress Open Championships through July. The majority of the exhibit is free, located inside the museum lobby. Additional exhibit elements are located inside the museum complementing the existing permanent collection and require an entry fee.
With equipment and support provided by El Paso’s Fiesta and Oasis Bowling Lanes, the USBC, International Bowling Campus Youth Development, and the J. Edward and Helen M.C. Stern Foundation, the Science of Bowling addresses science, technology, engineering, math, physics, and even health. National manufacturers, including Hammer, Storm, Columbia and Kegel, provided sectioned bowling balls and pins to show how complicated equipment can be. The exhibit appeals to all ages. It gives students the opportunity to learn bowling technique while focusing on complex science concepts such as Newton’s Laws of Physics. Adults will see how the USBC regulates bowling equipment and learn about local pros. Younger children will experience the fun of bowling through lightweight Bowler’s Ed kits or the new virtual bowling exhibit.
