Learning Growing Making

Immerse yourself in Mexican art and culture at the National Museum of Mexican Art. We showcase 3,000 years of creativity from both sides of the border.

The National Museum of Mexican Art (NMMA) was founded in 1982 by a group of Chicago Public School educators.  The goal was to establish an arts and cultural organization committed to accessibility, education and social justice. Over the years, the institution has grown, its audience has broadened, and its reach now extends across the United States and beyond. With an 10,000-piece Permanent Collection and 150,000 annual visitors, NMMA is now one of the most prominent Latino organizations in the country. It is the first Latino museum in the country that is accredited by the American Association of Museums, and NMMA is free to the public. While our presence has grown, the NMMA remains true to our founding mission: To showcase the beauty and richness of Mexican culture by sponsoring events and presenting exhibitions that exemplify the majestic variety of visual and performing arts in the Mexican culture; to develop, conserve and preserve a significant permanent collection of Mexican art; to encourage the professional development of Mexican artists; and, to offer arts-education programs.
