The First Gallery of the National Latino Museum
Starting June 18, 2022, the National Museum of the American Latino will open and operate the Molina Family Latino Gallery at the National Museum of American History. The 4,500-sq. ft. gallery is the Smithsonian's first gallery dedicated to the Latino experience and Latino contributions to the United States. Designed to engage multigenerational and cross-cultural audiences, the Molina Family Latino Gallery integrates the universal principles of inclusive and accessible design. The content and overall experience are in English and Spanish and accessible to diverse visitors with varying physical, sensory, and brain-based conditions. The Molina Family Latino Gallery is the first physical presence of the National Museum of the American Latino and foreshadows what a Latino museum could embody.
