The 15 Coolest Places in Harlem Right Now

El Museo del Barrio

Address: 1230 5th Ave.
Website: elmuseo.org

Founded in 1969, El Museo Del Barrio is another great museum that spotlights the works of Harlem's diverse creative community. Specializing in the visual arts by people in the Latin and Caribbean communities, El Museo was created as a way for underrepresented artists of Latin descent to showcase their work. A visit to the museum will give you insight into the Nuyorican movement, as a lot of the work represents the Puerto Rican community in the city. While spending time in the museum and viewing the work is a great experience, El Museo also conducts cultural enrichment activities through their performing arts series and educational programs.
