Lonely Planet review

At first, this may seem like a weird little niche museum, but the more time you spend in west Texas, the more you recognize the Border Patrol as an integral part of the culture. There's not much nuance to the exhibits – it feels like they just stuck some of the more interesting stuff they had in storage into one big room, with some rather big and intimidating chase vehicles at the other end. But there are some interesting artifacts representing both sides of the river. As for the gift shop: what little girl wouldn't be thrilled with a plush pink pony with a Border Patrol logo embroidered on it?
