The Smithsonian Latino Center is building the Molina Family Latino Gallery—its first-ever physical museum space—at the National Museum of American History and installing its inaugural exhibition, ¡Presente! A Latino History of the United States.
¡Presente! A Latino History of the United States, the inaugural exhibition of the Molina Family Latino Gallery, tells U.S. history from the perspectives of the diverse Latina/os who lived it. This exhibition uncovers hidden and forgotten stories, connects visitors to Latina/o culture, and lays the foundation for understanding how Latina/os inform and shape U.S. history.
Generous support from people like you has brought the Smithsonian Latino Center to where it is today. Gifts support Latinidad at the Smithsonian and help showcase the U.S. Latino experience in the nation's museum. Your gifts power our impact.
We use public and educational programs to teach the untold stories of Latinos in the U.S. and to increase awareness of and access to Latino collections and resources at the Smithsonian. We also offer public, family and educational programs, as well as online resources and bilingual teaching materials.
