Día de los Muertos Community Altar


The museum’s community altar will be on display for the two weeks leading up to our Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Community Celebration on October 29. We invite members of the public to bring items to place on the altar, in honor of loved ones who have passed. Or, send us a dedication to your loved one by email to with “Día de los Muertos" in the subject line. The photos will be printed and placed on the altar. 

Due to conservation concerns we are unable to display plants, flowers, leaves, balloons, food, or liquids.
