Explore Chamizal History


Experience Borderland Culture

Performing Arts

Chamizal National Memorial is uncommon among more than 400 other national parks, both as an urban park and because of its full performance theater, which seats almost 500 people. This indoor theater and an outdoor amphitheater are stages for sharing the park’s history and borderland culture during various major events and other programs throughout the year.

Visual Arts and Exhibits

One of the first things you will see when you come to the park is the Nuestra Herencia mural depicting elements of history and culture reflected in this area and the Chamizal story. Inside the Cultural Center you will find paintings and an exhibit of the Traditional Dress of Mexico in addition to our history museum, and temporary exhibits are on display in the Franklin G. Smith Gallery.

There are many things to do at Chamizal National Memorial, so plan your visit and check our calendar to find your next great cultural experience!
