  • A great museum. Very well curated and displayed. FREE! Traditional, modern, politically active art. Next door to a park if you need to play afterwards.  more »
  • This is an out of the way museum for your average tourist, but it is a hidden gem and it is FREE! The exhibits rotate, so there is always something new to see.  more »
  • It's not kids friendly. You will learn about the culture through the art point of view. Free admissions and parking. Self service.... no tours  more »

  • A very low-key, yet powerful museum. Always free admission, but it has the quality of museums that charge a much higher entrance fee. Absolutely must-see if you live in the city.
  • This is a beautiful, community space. It's also free (though I recommend a donation)! They highlight local artists all the time, which is always great to see. Highly recommend this Pilsen spot!
  • Small but free and full of high quality Mexican / Mexican-American art. A good survey of the genre.
  • At the beginning I wasn't comfortable with all these skulls and death exhibition. Those people love death and married mummies. But I found some interesting stuff from mixing old and new Mexican art. I loved some of the exhibitions which represent natural facts. It is also free for admission.
  • The museum is not very big, but worth the visit! Very interesting collection of latin american art, specifically modern art. In addition, there is huge mural wall anong the 16yh street, 2 blocks away from the museum.
