National Museum of Mexican Art

National Museum of Mexican Art Review

As the largest Latino museum in the country, this is the one musuem you shouldn't miss after you've done the big museums downtown. Galleries house impressive collections of contemporary, traditional, and meso-American art from both sides of the border, as well as vivid exhibits that trace immigration woes and political fights. Its 5,500-object permanent collection includes pre-Cuauhtemoc artifacts, textiles, paintings, prints and drawings, and folk art. Every fall the giant "Day of the Dead" exhibit stuns Chicagoans with its altars from artists across the country.

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
