Museum admission includes celebrations and activities near the Day of the Dead/Dia de los Muertos exhibition, complete with storytelling, costumes, ceramic skull painting, sweet treats and more. Marvel at the exquisite artistry and touching tributes of Dia de los Muertos, the colorful religious celebration honoring deceased loved ones, which is practiced by Meso-American cultures. Explore the traditions of Dia de los Muertos via full-scale models of a traditional Mexican home and graveyard, as they would typically appear during this celebration, and a customary ofrenda (memorial tables or altars) featuring decorative elements to honor their loved ones and items to be “enjoyed” by the deceased.

Each year, the Museum celebrates the holiday with a special community altar where visitors are encouraged to bring and leave mementos of their loved ones and authentic ofrendas decorated with photos, candles, flowers, breads and other memorial objects. The altars will be on display throughout the month of November.
