El Paso Children’s Museum and Science Center

The Children’s Museum and Science Center will be an integral part of the educational ecosystem of our community. It will be an educational institution open to every member of the community. The new museum will be designed specifically to maximize open-ended and imaginative play and exploration. It will be a true community asset, among the best children’s museums in the nation, but designed especially for El Paso by the esteemed architecture firm Snohetta. The museum is under construction now, with a late 2022 completion expected, and will be located in the heart of El Paso’s Downtown Arts District.

Sponsorships, naming rights, and other funding opportunities are available. Please email for more info.

El Paso Matters

El Paso Matters is a new nonprofit digital news organization dedicated to reporting that gives El Pasoans the information they need to make informed decisions and it encourages governments and key institutions to operate in a transparent, efficient and ethical manner. Founded by renowned journalist Robert Moore, El Paso Matters was born out of the need for El Paso and the El Paso del Norte region to have a nonprofit, member-supported digital news organization that dives into the complex issues shaping our region – and serves as a catalyst for solutions-oriented conversations.

Murchison Rogers Park

Since 1963, Murchison Rogers Park is where countless El Pasoans come to take in the beauty of the borderland. This park belongs to all of us, but it hasn’t always been easy for everyone to enjoy. Now, for the first time in its nearly 60-year history, it will be accessible for every El Pasoan to experience thanks to an award-winning, pedestrian-friendly redesign with even more breathtaking views of the El Paso-Ciudad Juarez borderland! This is your chance to give El Pasoans what they deserve – a magnificent public space for everyone who lives in and visits our city to enjoy for generations to come. Help us build the dream of an iconic and reimagined El Paso park.
