20th Anniversary Celebration!

Learn more about this joyful holiday, a national symbol of Mexico shared with the world. The annual tradition of building ofrendas—altars with photos, favorite foods, and memorabilia of the departed—encourages annual visits by the souls, and is an occasion to honor and celebrate the lives of the departed. Enjoy three floors of activities for the young and young at heart including crafts, scent stations, traditional decorations, Nahuatl stories, decorating a sugar skull (extra fee), painting demonstrations, folk dances and two live music performances. Mexican hot chocolate and bread will be available for sale outside of the museum.

Free parking at the 52 Oxford Street Garage.

Presented by the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology and Harvard Museums of Science & Culture in collaboration with the Consulate General of Mexico in Boston
