National Museum of Mexican Art in Chicago
This is part of an 18 week, 7,532 mile, Vanabode road trip detailed in the
book from Amazon
ALL work shown here is copyright the original owners, artists, painters, and creators. They showcase over 7,500 pieces in the permanent collection. Here the museum is always free, but is certainly on par with galleries in the $8 to $20 admission price range. I HIGHLY recommend a visit to this quiet peaceful setting among world class art, design and history.
The National Museum of Mexican Art is a real treasure though it is far from the waterfront. They feature over 3,000 years of Mexican culture and artistic work from both sides of the border.
The galleries are set up in the Pilsen neighborhood (biggest concentration of people from the Mexican community in the city). This means great locally accessible Mexican restaurants and bars too!
Curators are experts in Mexican art and their passion for the work translates into a great bilingual tour through the galleries if you like.
For thousands of unforgettable experiences on this affordable
