FREE Day of the Dead Celebration: El Dia de los Muertos

Come celebrate! ¡Vengan a celebrar! 

Whether you’re an adult or a child, you’ll enjoy our second annual Day of the Dead celebration. This jovial Mexican holiday commemorates the lives of family and friends who have died. Visitors will enjoy traditional Mexican dance performances, a live mariachi band, food, and art activities for the whole family. Starting Sunday, October 31, the museum will host a community altar in the Graham Auditorium and members of the public are encouraged to bring items in honor of loved ones who have passed away.

If you would like to bring items to be presented at the Day of the Dead altar, please bring them to the museum between October 31-November 7.

During this event, admission will be free, to our special exhibition, Walter Wick: Games, Gizmos and Toys in the Attic.

For more information, call 410-547-9000 ext. 323
