Mexican Museum


The soul and spirit of the arts and cultures of Mexico and the Americas are fundamentally linked. Through its programs, The Mexican Museum voices the complexity and richness of Latino art throughout the Americas, encouraging dialogue among the broadest public. The Mexican Museum was founded in 1975 by San Francisco resident and artist, Peter Rodríguez. Initially located in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District, the Museum was the realization of Mr. Rodríguez’s vision that an institution be created in the United States to exhibit the aesthetic expression of the Mexican and Mexican-American people. The Museum has since expanded this vision to reflect the evolving scope of the Mexican, Chicano, and Latino experience. The Mexican Museum holds a permanent collection of over 14,000 objects including Pre-Conquest, Colonial, Popular, Mexican and Latino Modern, and Mexican, Latino, and Chicano Contemporary art.
