“A museum without borders”
The National Museum of Mexican Art (Formerly known as the Mexican Fine Arts Center Museum) is a museum which features Mexican, Latino, and Chicano art and culture. The museum was founded in 1982 by Carlos Tortolero. Located in the neighborhood of Pilsen in Chicago, Illinois, the current building in Harrison Park opened on March 27, 1987. The museum is the only Latino museum accredited by the American Association of Museums. The mission of the museum is to display Mexican culture as one sin fronteras(without borders).
The museum is alright, I've seen a couple of interesting exhibits there but it's a small museum that's definitely off-the-beaten-path. If you're nearby it's worth a visit but not a destination in and of itself. If anything I'd say they're more important because of all the community and cultural events they host and support.
