The 7000 square foot museum in the Visitors Center is well worth the time. It has a number of interesting displays about the raid in 1916 by soldiers loyal to Pancho Villa and the punitive mission led by "Blackjack" Pershing that followed. The displays are very well presented. A must see for museum enthusiasts. If you have time, watch the video.
