The National Museum of the American Latino presents free events for all ages throughout the year that highlight Latino history, culture, art, and science. Our family and public programs are vehicles for telling Latino stories at the Smithsonian.
The Museum provides interactive and innovative opportunities to enhance life-long learning and increase access and awareness to the Smithsonian's Latino collections and resources in the arts, sciences, and humanities. Here, you will find bilingual materials for students and teachers, school programs, and training toolkits.
Learn more about Latino History and Culture. As part of the largest ethnic group in the United States, Latinas and Latinos have significantly contributed to the nation’s identity and have played a vital role in shaping American culture.
Our professional development programs help increase the Latino presence throughout the Smithsonian, advance Latino arts and artists nationwide, and offer new opportunities for the next generation of Latino museum professionals.
