Day of the Dead

Save the date for our annual family day celebration: Sunday, 10/25/15, 12-4 p.m. Included with museum admission. 

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is an important tradition in Mexican culture that helps families honor and remember loved ones who have died. In Mexican culture, the journey of death is considered a reason to celebrate, even in grief, and the colorful traditions and symbols of the holiday strengthen connections to ancestors. The History Center’s colorful and joyous annual festivities have included Aztec dance, beautifully decorated altars (ofrendas), puppet shows, hands-on activities and games, crafts, and traditional Mexican music and dancing.
