Took my kiddos (3&10) to explore and the rangers were fantastic. Really knew how to talk to kids and explain or their level. You can get a stamp for your National park passport book and your kiddos can becae jr rangers.

I would say this place is worth a quick stop, but don't expect to stay long. It is a nice park and mural commemorating the cultures of the bortder area and the end of territorial disputes between the US and Mexico.

My husband and I visited the Chamizal National Memorial on a Sunday. The Park was small, but clean and well kept. The outside bathrooms were clean. However we were disappointed that the visitors center was closed.

The mural is a lot of fun but inside there's not that much history (or much else) inside the building.

We spent several hours here, both viewing the displays and doing the outdoor walking tour. There were plenty of shaded benches on the tour, which made it pleasant to walk in 80 degree weather. The ranger told us that the indoor displays are in transition...More
