The Chicano Park Museum and Cultural Center is open for everyone to enjoy. It is a space where people can communicate openly, create diverse relationships, and take pride in their communities. Through our exhibitions, we educate individuals about Chicana/o, Latina/o, and Indigenous culture and history. We also host a variety of fun educational classes and activities for the public involving a wide range of arts, literature, science and history.
