    I've seen museums around the world and to me this is one of the best. Some stunning artwork. And it really drives home the importance of Mexican American and Mexican art. A great attraction in the wonderful Pilsen neighborhood.

    The art collection is impressive. Old artist and new. I've also been here for fundraiser and the banquet hall is small but cozy. They have a stage which I love because no matter where you sit or stand you are always engage in the presentations or entertainment.

    A cute and small museum, full of interesting and lively pieces. It was really nice to know it is free and open to the public. They have a special exhibit with Francesco Toledo which was beautiful, unique, and wonderful. It was nice to see the transition of art style through history, giving you a true feel for Mexican art.
