The highlight will be a storytelling event Friday led by Alex Mares, co-owner of Furs-N-Spurs, an agri-tourism business in Clint.
This cultural storytelling program is for adults and families with children in at least the third grade.
The program starts with a museum tour and then goes outside for a tour of the 1-mile loop trail on the museum grounds.
As twilight begins, participants will enter a teepee and Mares
will tell stories from the Navajo, Pueblo and Apache tribes.
After dark, participants will leave the tepee and view the night sky and learn tribal stories about the stars and constellations.
"We always try to make our events fun and sneak in the education," said Mares, a former lead ranger at Hueco Tanks State Park and State Historic Site.
This storytelling event is designed to teach participants more about the culture of the El Paso area and the greater Southwest, he
"In addition, they will get a deeper appreciation for not just the history, but the prehistory of the area," Mares
said the storytelling event fits in nicely with this year's theme for International Museum Day
"Native people always try to remember that we live in the generations," Mares
