Stopped here to learn more about the Border Patrol and found the exhibits informative. Learned about the history and that they do more than just guard our borders. They help in rescue efforts for one thing. They also were the first sky Marshall’s.

This museum is way more interesting than I thought it would be. We learned so much. For one, it's the only Border museum in the US. Admission is free but they take donations. I highly recommend it, lots of history. May be a bit hard...More
