National Museum of Mexican Art

Location: Chicago

2013 Exhibitions: Signature Works (January 17 - April 7), Chaz Bojórquez (November 9 - June 30)

The mission of the National Museum of Mexican Art is to present Mexican culture as one "sin fronteras," or "without borders." Their shows are without borders or boundaries, displaying art from pre-Columbian artifacts to Chicano graffiti, all without an admission cost. Nestled in a residential neighborhood near some of the city's best taquerias, the museum is the only member of the American Association of Museums dedicated to Latino culture. To avoid Chicago's freezing winters and humid summers, plan your visit for October, when you can catch the nation's largest Dia de los Muertos exhibit.
