Opening at the National Museum of American History.
About the Molina Family Latino Gallery
The Molina Family Latino Gallery will be the very first dedicated museum space on the National Mall celebrating the U.S. Latino experience. With major support from the family of Dr. C. David Molina and stewarded by Smithsonian Latino Center, this 4,500 square foot gallery is scheduled to open at the National Museum of American History in fall 2021, presenting stories of discovery, identity, migration, innovation, entrepreneurship, and success to millions of diverse, intergenerational audiences.
The Molina Gallery will feature fully accessible (universal design) bilingual exhibitions, educational programs, and dynamic digital technologies. In-person and online visitors will be invited to discuss and share their perspectives, actively engaging with this much-needed, vibrant gateway into the Latino experience at the Smithsonian. Visitors will leave the Molina Gallery with a greater understanding and appreciation of the many contributions our diverse communities have made in building this country and shaping its national culture.
